For the Weekend Art Project this weekend, we want users to experiment with PicsArt’s neon effect. The neon effect transforms your photo by turning the outlines of the objects in your photo into neon lights. Depending on the photo, PicsArt’s neon effect can make images appear magical, futuristic, or simply surreal.

The real creativity of this exercise, however, is in how you apply the neon effect. Combine the neon effect with the original image, choosing which elements of the photo work best rendered which way, and how they work together. Use it to transform a butterfly into a cyborg insect, or paint a road below a car to create a highway from another planet.

Experiment on different photos, try different things, and enter your best into this week’s Weekend Art Project.
