Rockstar Attitude – dt layout for the SWAT neon challenge

Each month, SWAT (Scrap Warriors Advanced Training) offers 2 “Drills,” which are challenges that are posted on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, a “Basic Training,” which is a tutorial, tip or technique post on the 2nd Saturday, and a “Special Op,” which is an off-the-page project posted on the 4th Saturday. All challenge entries are due by 11:59 pm EST on the 28th of the month the challenge is posted.

For Drill #11 the challenge is to use NEON colors on your layout, card, tag, altered project, etc. Even if you don’t already have a bunch of this trendy color range in your existing stash, you don’t have to run out and buy a bunch of stuff. Just check your supplies and you might be surprised by what you find! 😀 I didn’t think I had anything neon except for 1 neon orange washi tape that I received in a Freckled Fawn grab bag. I was surprised to find that I also have a white and neon yellow striped one and a neon green acrylic spray paint sample that was sent to me from Liquitex. 😀 I also found a variety of neon trims and a few patterned papers but did not end up using those on my project. Sorry my pic didn’t capture the colors just right, but here’s what I came up with:

I took a piece of white cardstock and layered the orange washi tape in strips across it, then trimmed to size. I repeated the process, but made sure to match up the stripes for the yellow and white tape, so now I had created my own neon papers. 😀 I used those 2 pieces to mat my photo of my oldest son, Taten. Isn’t he cute? This pic was taken a couple of years ago at his grandmother’s house. He’s now a full blown teen with the attitude to prove it! 😉 lol
