I thought I'd share a sports page I made using non-sports papers, using some amazing GCD Studios papers.
My younger son loves sports, even though he's not a formal participant right now. I have a collection of photos I've taken of him messing around with various athletic gear, so I decided to put them together on a page.
I LOVE this yellow paper "Sunswept" from the line Splendor:
It reminded me of the colors in the basketball photo of my son, so I used this paper as the backdrop. I then picked a bunch of brown and dark yellow papers from the same line to add to the page, "Letter Tiles," "Zig Zag," and "Heirloom." To add some contrast, I picked this energetic paper "Woven Chevron" from Splendor as an accent paper:
I hand cut a line and added it to the middle of the browns.
I wanted small bits of blue throughout as well, so I punched tiny circles from the B side of "Pink Flora." I added them to the yellow paper and did some hand stitching. Here's how the page ended up:
I love how versatile this collection is! Have fun playing with Splendor, even for some pages that you might otherwise only use themed products on.
