Here's the case file and sketch.
And here's my take on it. CLICK HERE for the rest of the design team's awesome work on this file. For my evidence, I chose a grid pattern and a tag/label. For my testimony I pulled in the inspiration word "place" when talking about place value.
Let me start out by saying I struggled like whoa on this one. 'Twas the mother of all case files for me. The color scheme AND the sketch. I can't think of anything but pumpkins when I see orange and green together and I have the hardest time with banners...I can never get them to seem to naturally "fit" on my pages without looking like some foreign impostor. Somehow, after 4 attempts I pulled this layout together. And I'm glad because I really love these pictures because they showcase the little lady hard at work at school. :)
I started out with some modeling paste, a stencil and chartreuse mist to get some numbers onto the background, since the layout is about math.
Then I cut out some banner shapes, hole punched them and secured them with jute twine.
A flair button, ink drips and wooden stars from Citrus Twist Kits.
And a description of Montessori methods of teaching math.
There she is! My little mathematician working the "stamp game"! :)
Hope to see your work in the gallery this week! Have a great weekend!
