Smile NEW AnnaLift 9/23/17 - 9/29/17

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 9.29.17 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!)

THIS WEEK WE ARE LIFTING:

Maysville by isDK



Scenic and panoramic aptly describes this week’s picturesque lift. An idyllic lake design gracefully flows across two pages. Perfectly blended, the horizontal view transforms from rolling green hills into a serene Zen-like mountain lake. Its subtle beauty is enhanced by a soft watercolor effect. Understated newspaper scrip blended into the background adds depth while the accent flower and threadz complement the natural splendor of the landscape. This enormously gifted artist and talented photographer shares her love of the splendor of nature with her exquisitely balanced art—flawlessly creating stunning spreads that remind us of the endless beauty found both in our country and in our lives. (Personally, I love arm-chair traveling with her.)

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

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Try creating a design that spreads across two pages or flows horizontally across a page.
• Use a scenic landscape photo or something from nature.
• Add a soft watercolor effect, using brushwork for added dimension.
• Integrate some newspaper and/or copy into the background.
• Incorporate texture and/or gesso into your background.
• Accent your layout with flowers, branches or other earthy elements.

• ArtPlay Palette Meadow

I am always intrigued by isDK's landscape orientation layouts...assuming she makes 11x8.5 books. So this is a great opportunity to play with my landscape oriented photos, and try a new watercolor technique.

I love spreading a photo across two pages I also continue to be entranced with small frames with details ala last week's lift.

At my husband's suggestion, I took this panorama photo of a whole wall of street art and this lift gave me an opportunity to use it.

I'm finding that if I use the lift for multiple of my pages during the week, not only does this give me needed inspiration, but there is some continuity during the week.

So thank you once again for sponsoring these challenges. Help is needed when you are on the nearly 500th page of the year
