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!
