Just because something was handmade doesn’t mean it was easy to make. 2019 is the perfect time to uplift your craft work as a professional and think about upgrading your home-based craft business.
But before that, let’s see how the world’s trends have changed! Explore just how far you can break through your crafting comfort zone and make 2019 the most creative year by staying in the trend loop.
I will mention about:
- Collage Style
- Nature Theme
- Digital Cut File
- In Gold Texture
- Paper Craft
- Marble Texture
This style is also a part of the Memphis style that you can easily catch up to in packaging design or fashion magazine. Terrazzo-inspired patterns are no longer just for floor tiles. After many decades, the terrazzo pattern itself has broken the old order and celebrated its own creative path, whether it’s in the surface of modern jewelry, in pillow covers or for branding and packaging.

This style has been developed and become more popular since the beginning of the 20th century. The interesting thing is that even a kid can craft a beautiful creation, and it should be easy enough to master this style and create an artistic effect. It is definitely possible to have a professional looking piece of wall art from a collage if you utilize the arrangement to make an awesome picture.
This year Nature is one of the leading elements in Pantone’s choice for the color of the year. When we close our eyes and try to visualize, it gives us images about coral reefs, vibrating coral in the sunset… So that is the reason they came up with Living Coral. Let update this color right away to your color library and make your own combo to play around with.
Another tip for you is that Living Coral is a perfect match with Blue (#4464B1) and Yellow (FFCF15)!
Besides Living Coral, palettes with nature-toned hues are also going strong. The typical color is green.
Digital Cut File
If you’re showcasing your craft products on any online marketplace, I strongly recommend you to pay more attention to mock ups if you want to show off how good your product is. Showing a white digital cut file on a colorful background could be a trend this month.
In Gold Texture
Your crafted DIY project definitely looks more gorgeous and professional when it is applied with a gold or silver texture. If you are running a craft business, don’t forget to use this texture for refreshing your traditional products and see how this trend can make your work shine.
