I went for a one-day-trip to Manchester and collected some ephemera with regard to my project. Going through shops I realised that many stationery sets include patterns done by combining traditional techniques with creative media. They presented a variety of different pattern, different and mostly bright colours. people seem to pay more money especially for products with this design according to the tags and how many were left. I personally liked the marbelling ones the best and think they stand out the most due to their special and unfakeable pattern and the way the colours are manipulated. It seems that it is quite a trend itself now people buy more creative and colourful things that their eyes appreciate.
