New AnnaLift 06/15/19 - 06/21/19
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 06.21.19 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!)

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

Something different this week, cuz as artists we need to shake things up occasionally. We need to stretch those artsy muscles or they start to sag—and sagging is never a good thing. :p

This week's lift challenge is to create a collage. Art that mixes things up. The definition of a collage is:

noun: collage; plural noun: collages
a piece of art made by sticking various different materials such as photographs and pieces of paper or fabric on to a backing.

Collages are one of my favorite artsty things to do. Here’s why:
1. There are no rules. None. No right or wrong way to create a collage. All ya gotta do is play and stick things together.
2. Lots of cool products in your stash that you usually don’t use can come out and play. You can stack or use as many papers you want, use a zillion or two elements or combine any combination of anything.
3. Hiding fun elements in your art is a great way to test your friends’ eyesight. It’s kinda like playing “where’s Waldo” for artists.
4. It’s personal or it’s not. Collages can be filled with stuff that symbolizes your hidden wishes, thoughts or desires or it's just a jumble of colors, elements and transfers that look pretty together.
5. No photos required. Of course you can use them, but only if you want to, again no rules. Collage can be just a collection of related items.

There are two collages for inspiration this week.

Nostaglia by lynnpremo

This bright and sunny art just oozes vintage charm. Filled with old-fashioned ephemera combined with layered papers it is the personification of nostalgia. This very talented artist has created a charming collage that brings a smile to all who see it.

Butterfly No. 1 by marye

This is a fantastic example of a collage within a shape. The vibrant colors and eclectic mix of elements, stamps and graphs shine against the plain background. Created by a gifted designer, this art truly takes flight.

Thank you, lynnpremo and marye, for sharing your inspirational design and creativity.

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Combine a variety of items together, anything. Collage your entire layout or just a section.
• Use two or more papers, elements, transfers and brushwork.
• Include one or more multi-media element. The more the merrier.
• Try a warm, sunny color palette. Or use a cool palette. Or use any color combo you want.
• Use buttons, bows, flowers, lace or any kind of embellishment you like.
• Add a title, script or wordArt.

• ArtPlay Palette Artsy

• ArtPlay Palette Bask

• ArtPlay Palette Whimsy

• ArtPlay MultiMedia Documents No. 3

• MultiMedia Hearts No. 3

• MultiMedia Birds No. 1

• ArtsyTransfers Riant

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.
