Hi everyone! Welcome back to the Pink Paislee blog! Today I am excited to share a layout featuring Thickers!
First up, here is a process video so you can see how this layout came together:
I started by using my Silhouette Cameo to draw concentric circles with a pencil onto this pretty pink patterned paper from the Whimsical collection. You can find the free cut file to download and use by clicking here.
Once the circles were drawn I peeled the paper off the mat and I grabbed the Thickers from all of my collections with Pink Paislee: Fancy Free, Take Me Away, Oh My Heart, Turn the Page, Pick-Me-Up, Whimsical, and my new collection which will be announced in a couple weeks! I found a quote on Pinterest and started placing the Thickers in random order over the drawn pencil lines.
Once all of the Thickers were in place I ran the layout through my sewing machine and stitched through them to keep them in place permanently and I also like the texture stitching adds. I added a pair of photos to the top left corner and tucked in a few of the floral die cuts from Whimsical.
Since the layout had a lot going on already I kept the embellishing to a minimum – I simply added an enamel heart sticker between a few of the words and a “fun times” puffy sticker overlapping the right photo. To finish I splashed white acrylic paint around the page and journaled with a white pen below the rows of Thickers.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you are inspired to use your Thickers!
