Yellow and brown and blue

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.

It's gorgeous. Love the added stitching and the wooden letters are amazing.
