Hello friends! It’s Zinia here and today I’m going to share with you a really fun idea that will help you use up your leftover thickers and word/phrase stickers.
I got really inspired by browsing through some typography and word art posters on pinterest and then I started thinking, wouldn’t it be fun to make a scrapbook layout using just words and letters? So I decided to give it a go.
Now it can be difficult to fill a full 12x12 page just using thickers so I pulled out my WeR Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet punchboard and I cut a word using it to fill a big area of my page. You can totally skip that step or cut some big letters using your favorite dies or your electronic die-cutting machine instead.
Going through my thickers stash, I was pleasantly surprised to see that all Amy’s collections can work together beautifully even though they are so different from each other. The letter and phrase stickers can connect with the colors and font families and create a delicate balance between them.
It's better to start placing the bigger words and elements first and then start filling the gaps with smaller stickers. You don’t need to stick to thickers, you can bring in any words from sticker books you have laying around.
A good way to create balance between all the different colors and materials is to use more pieces from a specific color. For example, I added more white and pink elements on my layout compared to the other colors. If you are intimidated to go all out and mix many colors and fonts, you can try a more controlled version. You can focus on one color, or create an ombre transition from a color to another. If you are a minimalist, you’ll absolutely love this technique to create a white on white look.
Just pull out your favorite supplies and any leftover thickers and word stickers you have in your collection and have fun creating a background using only words!
I really hope you will challenge yourself and try this out; you are going to love it.
