American Crafts | Right Now

Who doesn't love a pack of Thickers??!!  What about BIG Thickers??!!  Big Thickers have been the focus on the American Crafts Blog this week, and I wanted to share my layout, that was up earlier in the week.  If you're working with some of your favorite Thickers but don't have enough of each letter, why not try tracing them on to your background paper.  And you can add a really fun look by stitching around the traced outline and painting with watercolors inside the letters!


How to: Begin by using the Lily 12x12 paper for your background and placing your photo on the right side of the layout. Choose a mix of "X" and "O" Thickers from the Rootbeer Float packs. Decide where you want to place the Thickers and adhere them where you want them, leaving off one of each letter. Use the letters as a stencil and trace them next to your other Thickers. Once you are finished tracing, place the Thickers back on your layout. Stitch around each of the traced letters with embroidery floss and then paint the centers with watercolors. Add an "X" stitch to each of the white "O" Thickers. Splatter black spray mist across your layout. Create your title using the Grace Thickers by layering them on the corner of your photo. Finish embellishing with the Rise & Shine Accent & Phrase Stickers, Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, Wooden Stamps, and Epoxy Sticker.
