Neons and Nature Picture Frame
I have a real thing for neons and neutrals lately. You might recall my post entitled All-a-flutter For Fluorescents. There was also the neon cake pop display I made for my sister's bachlorette party. Then the real obsession with painted sticks started here with Going All Banksy on the Forest. Month's later my love for this color combination is still going strong. So much so that today for I Love to Create I decided to bring the neon to the neutrals yet again.
You might recognize this wooden frame as a prop from the Little Lumberjacks and Jills party I recently threw for my kids. The frame was perfect for the woodland theme of the party, but did not fit in with the rest of my kitschy decor when the buffalo plaid came down. I didn't want to just donate the frame or give it away, instead I decided to give it the Naughty Secretary Club treatment. The first thing I did was using masking tape I taped off sections.
Using neon Scribbles paint I adorned my frame. Consider yourself warned that this takes several coats. I eventually added white paint to make the neon more opaque. A white base coat on the stripes might have been my best bet in retrospect.
Once the paint had dried completely I removed the masking tape to reveal the finished product. Ahhh, much better. My very own neons and neutrals painted frame. I love the two extremes of neons and nature together. Then again I would.
