I'm sure that I'm not alone in this, but there are certain things I could live the rest of my artistic life without seeing.
I hope I never see another heritage photo wearing a dunce cap with fairy wings. If you were doing any kind of art journaling/ATC art back in the early 2000's you couldn't swing a dead rat on a string without hitting one of these layouts. They were cool at first, but quickly got monotonous.
I'm pretty over "zettiology" layouts by anyone besides Teesha Moore and even she's started moving in other directions in her art. It's just too distinctive for so many people to be doing. It doesn't feel fresh anymore.
This one hurts a little to admit, but as much as I love Ali Edwards as a person and her innovative projects, I wish that not every single person who does a "week in the life" or a "December daily" used all the exact same products that she does. It feels like 99% of those projects use her handwriting font too.
And I'm sure you guys remember when Elise Larson had her Love Elise scrapbooking line. I still think it's cute in small doses, but for a minute there it seemed like I was drowning in a sea of twee.
Were any of you scrapbooking back in the 90s? Do you remember how every layout involved cutesy country themed themes, tons of stickers, and pictures cut into shapes... like we're talking hearts, stars, or even like a palm tree? I remember. That was pretty much every single page in my first album. I remember being so dang excited to find a specialty scrapbooking shop that had literally rows of papers with plaid papers or the ones that are just blown up muted photos. And the stickers... omg. And every layout was 8.5x11. The first time I saw a 12x12 I was so confused.
Anyway, yeah... 90s era scrapbooking should never ever come back. Not even in that whole "the 60s are cool again" nostalgia cycle that seems to happen to clothes every 20 years or so.
Anybody else have any tends you'd rather would die a quiet death?
