A Pop of Neon: Creativity Magazine issue 58

Following my first major feature in Creativity Magazine, i am now going to share my layout in more detail and give you a few tips on how to use this range.

Here a few tips

Do not be afraid to use bright colours such as neon. 
When used in the right quantity they can produce stunning effects. 
The Bare Basics Neon range was designed to compliment the existing Bare Basics products and works best with soft neutral colours. 
Tone down the brightness with kraft or black card stock.

I added texture to this layout by cutting out fancy boarders using boarder dies and Xcut boarder punches. Add dimension by layering them up by stacking 3d foam pads together.

I rubbed paint over white mulberry flowers so that the bright colours would not overwhelm the layout.

Use stamps to create embellishments by stamping them onto card and cutting them out. I made mini gringham stars by using the mini start palm punch and punching through the stamped image.

Thank you for visiting and you can read the full article and more in Creativity Magazine issue 58. Visit for more information.
