Default ***AnnaLift 11.8.14 - 11.14.14

It’s Saturday……………yep, Saturday and time for another challenge from Anna Aspnes.

Each Saturday the AnnaTeam selects 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? Choose ONE idea from the page to lift or choose it ALL and lift it completely. There is no right or wrong way to ArtPlay. Be inspired and create your ‘AnnaLift’ and then upload your page to the Anna gallery, plus include it here in this forum thread. Upload your page by Friday 11.14.14 by NOON EST with the title, ‘AnnaLift ’ and one lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a $5.00 GiftKard to Anna’s shop. The winner will be posted each Friday here in the forum.

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.

Okay - so it looks like we have a pattern going here, as this is the second week in a row that an x-aATeam layout is the subject of our lift, but I just couldn't pass this layout by. We are lifting a layout created by 'donnagoar' this week called 'relax.........' I have to say that I relax just a bit, gazing at the photograph she used for this layout. I love that the photo is placed on a basic white-ish background. I love that she chose an Artsy Paper with just a hint of pattern, with the faint polka dots, that you might miss except for the subtle textures, artstrokes, threadz, that cause you to stop and take note of all the special touches. The brilliance of Anna's Artsy Papers can make it so easy to pull together a very special layout, but when to add the extra little touches throughout, as Donna did here, it brings the page to a whole new level. I love the watery edge to the photo, the little yellow button placed amongst the scribbles, the threadz, the hint of text in the upper right, the location of the WordArt and the perfect quote all combined make for a mesmerizing page. Even the name and date are carefully placed - causing the viewer's eye to stop and take note - all framed with the hint of a soft brown edge overlay. I am anxious to see what everyone creates, as it is now up to you to choose just what you want to lift from this page. You may choose to lift a single element of the layout, or lift it all - whatever grabs you and takes hold of you when you look at this layout. Have some fun with it - I am sure the results will be awesome.

This week’s AnnaLift will inspire all of us in some way. Maybe you will choose to:
-start with a base of Anna's Artsy Paper
-use descriptive words throughout
-add that perfect quote
-add some stitchez or threadz
-use a clipping mask to add extra interest
-add that perfect overlay to frame your layout

What creative ideas will inspire for you this week in the AnnaLift challenge?
Try something new.
Have some fun.
Enjoy a new ArtPlay or love an old ArtPlay
Pat yourself on the back for being an awesome YOU.
Upload your AnnaLift to the gallery so we can tell YOU that you are awesome too!

What a beautiful page to lift. Thanks Donna and thanks Joanie for picking Donna's page!

I liked the relaxing theme, so I found a photo of myself having a relaxing moment in a tree trunk while we were driving on the Avenue of the Giants. It was so beautiful and serene there. We were early and also did a walk in the forest. You could hear the trees crack and it was so peaceful. Very happy memories on that day.

Thank you for the inspiration! I recently purchased "Glance" because of the texture, but on first run through of my pictures I didn't think I had any pictures to use with it. I love how it turned out and will use this kit now for my other shots at the boneyard beach!
