So Trendy......

OK, so the hot new color trend in paper crafting is Neon. Now, I'm not a big fan. Even in the 80's when neon was hot, I recall only having shoe laces and jelly bracelets in these bright colors! But, I challenged myself to hop on the trend and make something. My husband had just recently brought me home a fun multi colored highlighter marker, and my first thought was 'Hey, I now have neon for my paper crafts!' The theme this time at Simon Says Stamp is We're So Trendy, to use neon, hexagons, or chevrons. I incorporated two of these by die cutting the arrows from a Sizzix die then coloring each one with my highlighter marker. I arranged them into the chevron shape and glued them to black card stock. The sentiment was done on the computer. For those who haven't tried this, it's hard to get a good neon color! The sentiment says 'You Brighten my day' The camera doesn't quite show how bright these neons are, but you get the point! I really wanted to add more to this, as it's really not my style, but I thought that the neon deserved the spotlight! Thanks so much for stopping by, and check the Simon Says link above for more trendy projects!
