Inspired by our November Course with Michelle Wedertz

This month, I had the fun task of creating a project inspired by November’s Exclusive Mini-Course. When I sat down to view the PDF file containing the class content, I was super motivated by the wealth of information and ideas that the three designers had to offer. After jotting down some notes and thoughts and gathering my November Kit, I went to work.

This course had me looking at my embellishments a little bit differently. For example, instead of keeping the “Joy” wood veneer plain, I misted it with gold spray. The difference this made was subtle, but noticeable. I also tried this technique with the vellum snowflakes from the November Kit; after spraying them just once with the gold mist and letting them dry, I placed them under a heavy book for a few minutes to help flatten them back out. The sparkle that the gold mist gave to both the wood veneer and snowflake made this extra step worth it!


I also picked my patterned paper with a little more care, choosing to compliment a square punched from one of the journaling cards from the kit with patterned paper from the Joyful Collection.

Overall, this course inspired me to look at my supplies a little more closely. I took greater care with paper selection and color. I also looked for new ways to alter my embellishments as opposed to letting them stand as is. The November Mini-Course was so inspiring that I was able to create this layout quickly and without any fuss.

We would love to see what you are creating using Elle’s Studio products (both inspired by the course or otherwise.) Please post to our gallery or share via Instagram and tag your creation #ellesstudio.
