It seems like every single time I go to the mall lately I see something new and neon: neon shirts, neon necklaces and even neon sunglasses.
Neon is just so popular right now.
And not to date myself or anything, but I remember the neon trend when it first surfaced in the 1980s. (Secret confession right here, folks. I proudly wore a pair of bright neon tennis shoes back in the day. I wore them all the time. Of course, that was like in the second grade and all.)
This time around I will be avoiding neon kicks. Instead I'll get a neon fix by adding bright pink, yellow, blue and other neon colors to my scrapbook pages and cards.
An easy way to add those trendy neon colors to your paper projects is by making your own DIY neon embellishments.
All you need are a couple neon highlighter pens and some Technique Tiles.
Your highlighter pens don't need to be anything fancy. I picked up these ones at the dollar store. (Not able to find any highlighter pens at your local dollar store? Borrow them from your favorite high school or college student's stash of school supplies.)
Then simply brush the marker on your tiles until they are completely covered with neon color.
Let the ink dry and then start stamping on them with basic black ink.
There's no need to seal them. You can put them on a card or scrapbook page right away.
I created all the circles here with Technique Tiles and highlighter pens.
I stamped the large circle tile with words from the So Very Thankful by Ali Edwards stamp set.
I added just a little bit of stamping to the smaller tiles with the stars and arrow from the Awesome stamp set.
I'd love to see your take on this technique. Share it with me through Technique Tuesday's Facebook page!
