Another great project with the 7gypsies Vintage Varsity Collection at the center of this great layout. This collection is perfect for photos of gals and guys and offers a touch of every sport you can think of (well almost every sport.)
Hi Misty Here!!! To start this page off, I grabbed my favorite stencil and created some texture in the background with modeling paste. Many of the papers in the collection have simple sports backgrounds that are a great starting place for mixed media layouts.
Then I went over the stenciling with some gesso. I really wanted to continue the texture from the paper, so while the paint was still wet I grabbed a piece of paper towel from my counter and pressed it into the paint. The pattern and texture on the towel was very similar to that of the dotted leather on a basketball, so it worked out perfectly!
Then, I layered up some Vintage Varsity Ephmera and yellow burlap to match my niece’s school colors. I love to fussy cut my photos and this great black and white shot of my niece ready to shoot the ball look great front and center on the layout.
To finish the page up I added a couple of flowers and some bling…
So if you are looking for a great sports paper line to make scrapbook layouts, mini book or cards, this collection has what it takes to show off your great photos, coordinate with the wide range of school colors and coordinate with products across all brands to add texture and color.
