How will you be inspired creatively in 2017? I am looking towards the trend masters for some guidelines and am here to share them with you. One trend that has caught my eye is geometric shapes. I love shapes and the thought of repeating them with paper and ink excites me.
I created a quick card and an embellishment to use on a layout inspired by this trend – and absolutely love how this basic concept worked out. Along with the trend of shapes I added some colour trends into the mix which made being creative so easy. I look forward to how these trends will evolve into other areas of my creativity.
Adhere double sided tape onto cardstock.
Cut 5mm strips on your trimmer out of cardstock.
Adhere the strips to the double sided tape. Cut the coloured piece into 3cm wide strips at an angle.
Cut the angles strips into squares.
Adhere four blocks together onto a base cardstock square. Add an embellishment to the centre of your geometric block and use it on a card or layout.
Trim the remainder of the strips into triangles. Randomly adhere the triangles to a card for a fun geometric look. Finish off with a few embellishments and a sentiment.
