Layering Thickers

Like many scrapbookers, I love using Thickers for my titles.  I quite often will make a layered title, one where the Thickers letters overlap each other a bit.  Like in this layout for example:

sweet smaller file

sweet detail smaller file

The trouble with layering your 3-D letters like this is that they often fall apart.  And then the layout goes into the "layouts to be fixed" pile.

I found a great way to really seal these types of letters together so they can be layered without fear!
I created the title of my Garden mini album (from JBS Mercantile April Mini Album Kit) with the sparkly Dear Lizzy letters in the kit.

garden mini 1 : Mini album Kit and main

Both the "54" and "GARDEN" are overlapping and in order to get the letters to stay put I spread a thin line of Glossy Accents where the letters or numbers overlapped.

The glue dries clear and I even pulled and tugged on these letters to see if they'll stay and they do!

Now to tackle the pile of "layouts to be fixed" with my bottle of Glossy Accents!

And don't forget to hop on over to the JBS Mercantile to play Centipede with us!
