2017 Trends – How To With Jowilna

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.

2017 Trends - Colours

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.
