I was assigned the SEI Field Notes line. At first, I was really intimidated by the mustard cardstock that came in the kit. Like, pouted for a couple of days didn't want to use that color intimidated. I just knew that I wouldn't be able to create a layout that I liked unless I was able to use white or cream or kraft or black. Finally, I just had a chat with myself about getting out of my box and trying new things. And here's what I created.
The floral pattern and the butterflies immediately made me dig out some outdoor pictures. These had a lot of blue in them, which provided a nice contrast to the mustard.
I really wanted the pretty butterflies to show up, so i mounted them on circles of the periodic table paper, a nice neutral pattern in the midst of so much business. A nice side effect was that this paper also inspired the title. By using the word "classroom," I felt that it made the periodic chart seem appropriate.
Remember that members of TSR can download the step-by-step directions for this layout in addition to the rest of the Recipe Card layouts. Check it out HERE.
Have a great day!
