Hi friends, it’s Lisa on the blog today! My assignment was Thickers. I’m going to be honest with you, this was kind of a hard one… :) I had quite a few ideas but none of them were good enough and I really tried to find a way to use them in a cool and unique way. What I absolutely wanted to do was mix and match Thickers from different collections. This has already been done quite a few times, but the results are always so beautiful. So after some weeks of thinking, I came up with this:

To start, I grabbed the Thickers from three of Paige’s collections: Oh My Heart, Turn the Page, and Pick-Me-Up. I chose a cool quote from Pinterest and started to put the quote together using the different Thickers and choosing them by color. I wanted to make four rows: pink, yellow, green, and blue. I had already used a lot my letters so I didn’t have all the ones I needed in every color. For the ones that I didn’t have, I cut some out of patterned paper and three of them I just painted over in the matching color.

When I had the whole quote ready, I took a white sheet of cardstock, mixed four colors I needed, and painted four stripes. I let it dry and placed my letters on them. I took two pictures of myself, matted them on one piece of patterned paper, and placed them in between the letters.

Then I cut out some stars in different sizes with my Silhouette Cameo and used them as stencils to cut out a bunch of stars from different patterned papers, mainly using Pick-Me-Up and Turn the Page, but also two or three from Oh My Heart. I placed the stars all around the page, sticking some of them right on the paper and using foam squares on some of them to create dimension. Then I used some star stickers and stuck them where I thought they would look good and fill up some gaps.

I drew around my hand-cut letters with a very thin black pen to make them stand out. To finish, I took a white chalk marker and splattered drops all over the page. I also used some gold shimmer spray to make splatters.
