How To: Thickers Background Layout

Creating a dramatic backdrop is a great way to showcase a favorite photo. This layout was created by using left over Thicker phrases on a white background. The words add texture without taking away from the focus. A strip of patterned paper with colorful stripes frames out the layout. It’s a simple, fun and bold design technique.

A clip from the Dear Lizzy Saturday line coordinates perfectly with the rainbow patterned in the layout. Attaching it the photo draws the eye to the focal point and adds dimension that pops off the page.

A few scattered rubber embellishments from the Oh Happy Life line to break up all the white in the background. They add a whimsical, colorful touch to the design.
