Tales of a Craft Class Junkie: On Trend, A Look Back

September's seminar at Masterful Scrapbook Design centered around trends and learning where they come from. We explored a variety of trends both in the scrapbooking realm and the world around us. I thought I would take a look back at the "On Trend" layouts that I created last month.

Inspired by Batman's comic book color palette, I created this bold layout which utilizes several menswear prints.

I shared a layout which utilizes the ever popular wood grain print also known as Faux Bois.

The cool thing about Masterful Scrapbook Design is that additional articles get published at Get it Scrapped which reflect and add to the topics discussed in the seminar. This month's seminar is all about helping you find and develop your style. I'm looking forward to perusing the contents this weekend.
