Tonight I am participating in the Crafterminds Trends Challenge. What is that you ask?? Use as many current blog “trends” in one project as possible. We all know about blog trends right? I mean how many chevron projects have you seen? (Yes I added that too!) I thought the challenge sounded like fun so I jumped on board. Are you ready for it? My oh so trendy sign….
Let me start by listing the trends I used in this one:
keep calm and carry on
brackets (in the watermark cause that is important too!)
I started by layering tons of different ephemera on a spare board. Since I have YET to use antlers in a project, I just had to add TWO to this one!
I printed out the “Keep Calm and Carry On” with an ombre feel. It did not photograph as well as I had hoped. But it goes from gray to white.
Chevron AND a bunting banner?? Oh yes! I did….
Lots of paper and mod podge later, I had myself one very trendy sign!
What else will be linked up at the Crafterminds Trends Challenge? How many trends can one girl use in ONE project? Come on over and find out. There is sure to be some hilarious projects linked up!
