What to do with Thickers you don't like

I titled the video that went with this page - Covering Ugly Thickers.  I know some people will argue there is no such thing as an ugly Thicker.  But there are certainly a few packs that have crept into my collection I don't like.  The small ones used for this layout were part of a grab bag.  I got lots of useful sets and a couple that haven't ever been used.

These started out as a pink and black tiger stripe.  It is a look that is early-Madonna, to me.  A coat of gesso and some watercolors and they are still an usual color but they match my photos.  The shine is from Twinkling H2O's.  These are pretty but probably not a product I would buy again.  I've found my basic Hobby Lobby watercolor set a good value but I don't use them enough to invest in individual colors.  I'm happy to have put another product in my stash to use this summer.

The photos were taken this past winter when I jumped on the swings at the playground one day just for fun.  I've always loved the swings and as sturdy they are someone must expect a few other 'big kids' to swing.

The die cut is from the Silhouette store.

I used a bit of my Washi stash on this one as well.

Here's the process video at YouTube:

And the sketch that goes with this page:

So here's to all the fun things we get to do as little and big kids!  Hope you have some fun in your day.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is such a sweet layout :)
    I love how you changed up your Thickers to work with your layout.
    I too loved to swing….now I seem to get vertigo if I do, lol.

  2. Love the way you constructed the flowers with washi tape and punches! So simple. Now why couldn't I think of that?? Beautiful Silhouette image, too. :-)

  3. Great swing pics! Another wonderful tip!

  4. Love what you did with the alphas, Lisa! You always have such amazing ideas. This page would be perfect to link up to Paper Issues Mix Tape linky party. Oh, and I still love swinging on the swings too. :)
