Tips And Techniques Tuesday..... All That Stickles

Hello Stickles Fans... It's Laura today with a little fun with Stickles!
This is my first technique post for All That Stickles...
we have a new technique or tip every Tuesday..
Here is a little poem from one of my favorite Cricut gals (okieladybug) wrote...
and I think it's just perfect...

Lightly, heavily
dotted, spotted
barely, fairly
dashed, slashed
and when I figure it out
right above my long eyelash!

Stickles are meant to be fun!!!!

I am adding some pictures throughout the post of my granddaughters Abby and Kyrie and myself
making some cards with stickles....

I add a light coat first then you can always add more....

Less is more... no blobbing.... I love the thin tip for outlining (above)

but I also love to use my finger...actually Kyrie using her finger (she is 6)(on her own pic)

I also use a toothpick alot...this is Abby (11 years old)

Both Abby and Kyrie managed to get the Stickles in their hair....
and on the couch...... and on the carpet....

If you need to dry it quickly... use a heat gun carefully
or an adjustable heat lamp near the project helps to dry...

The thing you need to remember the most about Stickles is

There is NO WRONG WAY...

and remember... Stickles are Highly Addictive!!!
