I have to admit I struggle with neon. I reckon I wore too much of it in the 80's to appreciate it again now. But I hated having that big sheet in the kit and not using it so gave myself a challenge to think creatively.
When I saw the Creative Journal and Pocket Diary kits I realised that the colours would go well with a fun photo I had ready to scrap.
Then I took some gesso and smeared it over some of the neon cardstock, making sure I kept it quite rough and textured and leaving some hints of the bright colour still visible. When it was dry I used a tree bark mask and sponged the distress inks over the top. I tore the paper and inked the edges and voila - neon I feel comfortable using
