Have You Hopped on the Color Block Trend?

Lately I've been drawn to the idea of color blocking (vibrant colors, repetitive shapes, often with white backdrops). It's so bold, with so many possibilities, and it's especially fun for the upcoming summer. If you're not brave enough to wear this kind of striking outfit, you could incorporate the idea into your home, party, or craft.

You can even use the color blocked look in lots of crafts by displaying the same little project in different bold colors. Minieco has been doing that forever now, and I love how unique and recognizable each of her projects are. I have been trying to incorporate this style into my own projects lately.

  6. I couldn't do this with clothes but in little bits like some of the examples it's great. Now for others, I say they should all go for it. I'm much more accepting of such colorful eye candy when others do it over doing it myself. Yes, I'm a big chicken. bwock! bwok!
