I am currently working on a piece that will encompass ALL of these trends, and it's going to be the jam!
I am kidding about that last bit. But if YOU wanna try to make something with all of the trends on it, please put it online and send me a link! I'd love to see...
Without further delay, here is the list:
1. Put a bird on it. Yup, this is still a thing. Or put any other animal on it, for that matter. Narwhals, foxes, and deer are a few other popular suggestions.
2. Put a triangle on it. Bonus points if there is more than one triangle on it. Extra bonus points if the triangles connect to create a larger geometric shape.
3. Put something neon on it. Oh, just a little splash or highlight… You know, to make it POP!
4. Put some words on it. Bonus points if the words are in French. Extra bonus points if they are ironic or uplifting in any way. Ce n'est pas une tendance. Aimez la vie!
5. Put raindrops on it. The more, the merrier! Bonus points if they are coming out of stylized clouds.
6. Put some water media on it and let it DRIP! It’s like raindrops, but taken up a notch!
7. Put some drawings on your photos in white. Cartoons and maybe some words, preferably.
8. Put something out of place on it. Stick a shoe on someone’s head or a pipe in a deer’s mouth.
9. Put a blur filter on it. Keep the focal point in focus, but let the rest of it get all hazy like.
10. Put a dessert on it. Bonus points for macaroons or cupcakes or layered cake slices.
11. Put a feather on it. Maybe even put two feathers on it. Maybe even make it so that some pieces of the feather are floating off and away…
12. Put some handstitching on it. I don’t care if it’s a drawing or a photo – just punch some holes and stitch on it!
13. Put some scribbles on it. You know, to make it look handmade and real – authentic style!
14. Put some flourishes on it. You know, to make it look polished and stylized – hipster style!
15. Put a silhouette on it. Because silhouettes are easy to draw, that’s why…
16. Put a hot air balloon on it. So colorful! It’s like putting in a rainbow without being that literal! Happiness! Freedom! Hot air!
17. Put a banner on it. Ooh, and throw some handwritten words on that banner while you’re at it!
18. Put a moustache on it. Oh, you know you want to…
19. Put a bicycle on it. Everybody loves to ride!
20. Put a lens flare on it. A fake lens flare. From your iPhone.
This was such a fun list to make!
