Good Morning Ladies,
I thought I would do some research into some of the upcoming Craft Trends for 2020, the first thing I looked at was the 'Pantone' Colour of the Year which for 2020 is Classic Blue, I think that this shade of Blue is lovely and would work well with Card Making.
This chart shows some of the other colours that will be 'Key' in 2020, there are some lovely shades in that chart.
I also read that Green is going to be big this year, which is fine by me, I will add a piece here that I found when doing my Research.....
"Green with envy? Not us! But chartreuse green is a popular color for crafts going into 2020. "It evokes feelings of growth and harmony," Johnson says. On Etsy, there has been a 12 percent increase in searches for green items and a 55 percent increase in searches for neon green in the last three months compared to the previous year. Kelly green fine glitter has received 369 reviews on the site, and these Celtic Knot Green Jacquard Ribbons have more than 1,600 reviews. Finding ways to add green to your crafts will keep you on trend for the new year"
Quilting is going to be really big in 2020, there has apparently been a huge rise in people looking for simple Beginner quilting patterns to download, I have to say this is something that I have always wanted to have a go at but it is one of those things that looks really complicated to start.
Constellation themed crafts are set to be really popular too, so anything that features the Night Sky, stars etc, we will have to watch and see what Constellation themed papers and craft items
Here are just two examples of Constellation themed papers I found on Google, I know SU did something similar a year or so back, they don't shout Spring and Summer to me I'm afraid, but we will have to wait and see it these predictions are right.
Another big trend that is predicted to grow is anything Stained Glass Themed, we have seen Sue Wilsons Stained Glass style Dies in this past year or two, this trend will continue we will also see Mosaic style kits that will give the same effects.
Art Therapy, Painting By Numbers, Colouring Books etc will continue to grow in 2020, this will branch out to other things like Rock Painting too, I have seen a trend where people Paint Rocks and leave them around for people to find, such a lovely idea.
I find it quite interesting to read about what the experts think will be popular, let me know if you have seen any predicted trends.
I hope you found this little feature interesting.
We had a lovely New Year's eve, we cooked a lovely Dinner together and watched Avengers Endgame, which took us almost to midnight, we saw the New Year in with a Cup of Tea! The fireworks started and Harley got himself all worked up, which took us a while to resolve, he did eventually settle. The funniest story of the past couple of days is about Bella, Harley got a lovely new bed for Christmas, it sits proudly in the corner of the lounge, Harley keeps coming in, sniffing it and laying by the sofa on the floor, we think it's because most of the time Bella is spread across the whole bed, I think she know she isn't supposed to be in there, if you call her she just spreads out even further! Little Minx!
I hope that you all had a lovely New Years Day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
