Ah, birds are such a breath of fresh air! This collection of blues and birds is the perfect inspiration for your own greeting of Spring. Robin’s egg blue, as well as the ever popular bird iconography, promises to be a solid trend for 2008. (That and grizzlies, but that’s just my two cents. Trend forecast, right here!)

What’s your trend prediction for this year? Leave it in the comments!

    Lovely. I've heard birds are over as far as trends go, but are birds ever over?

    Birds are kind of always around, I think. Such classic iconography.

    Gorgeous treasury! I love birds! I did a whole line of bird skirts this year. Don't know if they are in or out, but they will always be in for me *smiles*

    Beautiful blue birdies! I think the birds will stay with us for a long time. I see a trend for yellow, and I think circles will be around.

    how about a white bird with a blue background? It's in my banner and my business cards too. : )

    ooh! this is so pretty and of course birds are here to stay! :D I'd like to see a rhinoceros trend as well.

    I think birds are peaceful, calming, and posetive, which is what we all seem to be craving at the moment. I think recycled anything will be hot hot hot this year. Happy Creating Everyone!

    I find birds incredibly inspiring (obviously - my shop is all bird collages) Bird imagery reminds me to take a look at the bigger picture (such as taking a birds eye view) that isn't always apparent from the ground

    birds are such a beautiful represntation of the nature's beauty...!!love them

    just another bird avatar checking in... i don't think the bird trend is fading anytime soon. at least i hope not.

  • itselemental

    itselemental said 9 years ago

    I would have to say...I agree!! "Birds" will never go out of style, and will be perpetually trendy! I even like "the dark side" of birds, as in "MincingMockingbird"...and I currently have a piece in an art show as a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock's, "The Birds..." keep the little peckers alive, 'cause it's always a weal tweet!!

  • DripStick

    Everyone has bird art, even me! I'm not sure the bird trend is as much a forecast as it is an observation on the past several years. I think sea creatures are on the rise!

    Love the birds and the blues. As far as upcoming trends, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Meat is the new cupcake.

  • McYarnpants

    Oh, and gross is the new pretty.

    everydaymoments said 9 years ago

    I obviously love birds as you can tell by my avatar (my business cards sports the same pigeon silhoutte). The up and coming trend is however....GNOMES. That's my prediction for the coming year anyway :).

    Beautiful treasury! I love the bird imagery. Birds have such an instantly recognizable silhouette, at once graceful and strong, dating back to Egyptian hieroglyphics (maybe before?). As far as color trends for spring/summer, bright hot colors (orange, yellow, red) are huge, especially when paired with white or a neutral. Think popsicles...
