Nik here, sharing a tidbit about how I made something I wasn't quite sure about from a kit work for me!
I know that the gold Thickers in the Encyclopedia add-on scared a few folks, myself included. I like 'tame' glitter...like the POW Glitter papers in the Shop. It's no secret that I can be a texture-phobe on my projects, only because I don't want anything getting smooshed/flattened/crunched...so the 'flatter' glitter stuff suits me very well.
But those Thickers scared me.
But I love the font, so I gave it a go...and ended up using them on nearly every page in my gallery for March!
For me, it was small doses.
A few numbers as an accent here...
As the title to my page here...I 'dulled' the shine a bit by inking right on top of them with some Prima Old Road Chalk Ink.
And in the end, I went crazy and let them do their thing. LET 'EM RIP! What better reason to use some glitter Thickers than a page about nail polish?!
For me, what worked was rubbing a bit of the chunky glitter off before sticking them down. Still plenty of sparkle, but not quite as 'WOW...CHECK ME OUT'!
In the end, I chose to embrace the glitter.
And ended up loving the bit of shine it added to my pages.
