neon





"When neon reemerged a few years ago, we all assumed it was just a brief flashback to the big-hair days of the 1980s. But since then, neon has shed its irony, and even its nostalgia, to take its rightful place at the palette table. Paired with neutral tones and in small doses, neon is way beyond Flock of Seagulls at this point. Bold and beautiful, neon is here to stay, so join the fun!"

Couldn't have said it any better. Neon is back and I needed some time to adjust to it, to even consider it for any craft project, but now I'm totally into it. Last week I bought some craft supplies in bright shiny neon colors for some projects. Even created a minialbum with it. This weekend I will try some new color combinations with neon, some inspired by DIY ideas on my pinterest board DIY | neon. And if you are into knitting and sewing, you should definitely visit the blog The Purl Bee, because it's full of sewing and knitting ideas with neon highlights.

How about you? How do you like the comeback of neon? Do you use it or do you ignore this trend and these colors completely?

have a great weekend
