Scrapbooking Trends 2011 – Nathalie Kalbach, Scrapbook Trends

Nathalie Kalbach, of the blog Scrapbook Trends, shares her thoughts with us today on the subject of trends in scrapbooking for 2011.  Visit Nathalie at her blog here.

Patterns: I think there will be two different styles coming up and those will be also presented by different colors. A very clean and minimalistic look but I also think we will see a lot of pattern mixes – kind of an ethnic mix and mash style. Flowers mixed with stripes and polka dots  or Paisleys mixed with batik and circles etc.

Colors: As with the patterns I assume we will see two different color schemes. For the minimalistic and clean look I assume restrained and neutral colors, with lots of nuances and hues which can be mixed in a wonderful way. For the eclectic pattern mixes I think it will be a cosmopolitan color range – from dim dark colors to lively pink and red tones to earthy yet still prominent colors. 

Pantone Colours

Techniques: Mixed Media Techniques will be still a huge trend. There will be new paints, new colors, new spray paint colors and new tools making it easy also for less technique driven Scrapbookers to use those paintmedia.

Material/Projects: Printed Book or Music Sheet paper- all kinds of things that have a natural look. One of the focuses I foresee for this CHA is how to enhance the Scrapbooking Products and use them in Homedecor items, recycle and reuse what you have. I think we will see Banners still being a rage in all kinds of shapes.

Thanks a lot, Nathalie!
