Trending Now....

Hi! Back again! Prima has another sweet feature you might be interested in checking out- Trends. What is trending now. I have a few ideas of what is a "trend and I thought I would make note of some HOT items and techniques. 

Trending Now: Chalkboard

 (Here is what I wrote for Prima Blog Feature which you can find here)

"Chalkboard is HOT, HOT, HOT right now! I have been late to jump on this band-wagon, as I really did not know what it was all about. That is, until I was introduced to the wonderful new Chalkboard Cards Prima came out with! They are fantastic."

"What a wonderful of difference you can make on your next creation by adding these. I chose to cut the middle out of mine and use it to frame that sweet face and took a white pen and doodled around the edge! This particular pack also has a pretty sweet title card too. That makes my job easy peasy! I even used my cards to back my Say It In Crystals. What a POP this gives my creation!"

"Building off the trend of Chalkboard, I also think that the color Black is trending now as well. I really, really love the contrast it gives against the brights of my flowers. Its boldness gives the layout lots of contrast and really draws the eye in and centers it there!"
