AnnaLift Challenge 01/08/21-01/22/21
Hello aArtists!

It’s time for another challenge from Anna Aspnes. The AnnaTeam selects a creative page or design concept from the Anna gallery as the ‘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 01.22.21 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: On Saturday the AnnaTeam posts one creative page from the Anna gallery as the ‘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!)

Please post your art in this thread and link to the Anna Aspnes gallery to win the $5 giftcard.


Fading Memories… by Marleen

In Fading Memories . . . by Marleen, the artist captivates us with the portrait of a young woman. She is created with neutral washes of umber and sienna paint. The quiet figure rests among the dynamic brush strokes, splashes and stitching. The layers of scripted text embrace the figure and create a delicate texture. Marleen creates a stunning design to inspire our artistry.

2021 by margeda

In 2021 by margeda, a beautiful memory is preserved in a watercolor landscape. The delicate landscape is centrally placed and has soft blues with touches of yellow and green. margeda creates a unique frame for the image by combining a single stroke edge with a deeply moving verse in scripted text. margeda creates a stunning design of patriotic pride to inspire our artsy storytelling.

Thank you, Marleen and margeda for sharing your expressive and inspirational artistry.

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
  • Use a body of scripted text to tell your story in a memory page or accent the image in an art journaling design.
  • Use an artsy effect on your image.
  • Creatively use text as a design element.
  • Use subtle colors or bold to express your self.
  • Add brush strokes and stains or lace and buttons for texture and dimension.

I love text as a design element so this is right down my alley. Gorgeous pages! Thank you for the inspiration and challenge.

AnnaLift "She"
Inspired by the AnnaLift I scrapped this layout of my daughter in her new role as groundskeeper at our local school – she was covered in paint!
