Tips using Thickers with Monique!

Hello MCS friends! It's Monique here today sharing a layout I created with the August Main Kit and a fun tip for the Thickers that are included in this month's kit.

This is the page I created:

And this is the August Main kit I used. Loving the Bloom collection from Simple Stories and the few extra papers from Kaisercraft & American Crafts!

In the kit you can see the set of white Thickers I used for the title on my page. As my background is also white I didn't want the title to be white as well and decided to color them in colors matching my photo and the papers: 

I used markers from Stampin'Up from my stash and they worked really well.

I colored the letters while leaving them on their original sheet, so I was sure I wouldn't accidentally color my background paper. I adhered them on my page after they had dried completely.

To decide where I wanted the title I used the Tickers guide from American Crafts. The papers and the photo were still lying "loose'' on my background page so I was able to move them around a bit before deciding where everything should go. I did however staple the papers together, which made the arranging/rearranging easier.

When I had decided where everything should go I adhered the papers, photo and title and embellished with bits and pieces from the kit. 

Last but not least I added the machine stitching and some paint drops and I was done!

Don't you just love this kit?! At first I thought I would use this kit with all it's flower elements for photos of my daughter, but now I'm glad I used a photo of one of my sons as well, as it's just perfect!
