Smile NEW AnnaLift 8/12/17 - 8/18/17

Hello aArtists!

It’s time for another challenge from Anna Aspnes. The AnnaTeam selects one creative page from the Anna gallery as the weekly ‘AnnaLift.’ Be inspired, create your own ‘AnnaLift,’ upload your page to the Anna gallery and include it here in this forum thread. Upload your page by Friday 8.18.17 by 8:00 pm EST with the title, ‘AnnaLift. ’ One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a $5.00 GiftKard to Anna’s shop.

HOW IT WORKS: Each Saturday the AnnaTeam posts one creative page from the Anna gallery as the weekly ‘AnnaLift.’ Check out the inspiration page and decide what speaks to you. Is it the design, the color, the wordART, or maybe the photo? Then enjoy artfully playing—there is no right or wrong way to ArtPlay.

Choose ONE idea to lift or choose it ALL and lift it completely. Be inspired, create your ‘AnnaLift’ and then upload your page to the Anna gallery, plus include it here in this forum thread. It would be great if you could link back to your page in the gallery too!

Anna’s products mix well with so many kits/designers and Anna welcomes you to include these with your Anna Products on your AnnaLift page.

If you’ve never challenged yourself to an AnnaLift—just do it!
If you’ve never posted or shared your AnnaLift—just do it!
If you have time to leave some love for someone in the gallery—do it too!
(Your kind words may inspire and encourage someone!)


Capture the Moment by myssp!


Fresh and adorable truly describes this week’s delightful lift. Glimpses of childhood joy shine through this summer-tinged layout. It’s jam-packed with endearing photos of a six-year-old charmer enjoying herself in the sunshine. Bright, fresh colors of yellow and green accentuate the feeling of sunny days filled with sunflowers. The sunflower theme peppered throughout the layout provides continuity and ties all the photos together. The black and white bows in opposite corners add contrast and effectively draw your eye to the precious center photo. Blocks of white space lightly decorated create tension while keeping the focus on the enchanting child. Not only does this extraordinary artist mesmerize us with her captivating photos, but she also reminds us of the simple joys of childhood. Her talent for capturing those simple yet special moments in life and then turning them into aspirational art is a gift to us all.

Thank you, myssp, for sharing your inspirational design and artistry.

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Feature several cropped photos of the same person, theme and/or event.
• Use a multi-photo template or several framed photos in your design.
• Choose a bright, fresh color palette that reminds you of summer.
• Repeat something from the photo throughout for continuity and emphasis.
• Create clusters that draws your eye down the page and anchors the page.
• Accent with buttons, bows, scribbles, words and artstrokes.

• ArtPlay Palette Heartland

• ArtPlay Palette Lush

• ArtPlay Palette Jardinier

• FotoInspired DoubleTemplate No. 79

• ButtonThreadz No.2

• Summer WordART Mix No. 1

Upload your page by Friday at 8:00 pm (EST) with the title, ‘AnnaLift ’ and one page will be randomly selected to win a $5 GiftKard to Anna's store." The winner will be posted here on SATURDAY.

We hope our AnnaLift inspires your creativity. You know we always LOVE to see how you ArtPlay.

Thanks for ArtPLAY-ing with us!

Anna and the Anna Team

Oh my gosh, I was so shocked, when I opened the new lift for this week.
What an honor - I had so much fun working with the Photo Inspired TEmplates, I fell in love with them!!!
They were outside of my normal box, but I so enjoyed working with them,
I see more of them in the future
I can't wait to see all the LO's this week for more great inspiration!
Thanks Christy

I loved the photo treatment (using an app) my DD used on the photos of her four youngest, but didn't know just what to do with them. Today's challenge gave me this idea. Thanks Anna, Christy, and Rachael for a fun morning!
