New AnnaLift 11/30/19 - 12/13/19
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 12.13.18 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!)

NOTE: This lift runs for two weeks. Deadline is 12/13/19.

REMINDER: Please provide a link to your art or link directly to Anna's gallery, so others can share some artsy love with you.


Ho. Ho. Ho. Tis the season for holiday cards. Those seasonal rectangle or square, printed or digital greetings featuring a snowy scene, or a jolly Santa, or darling children along with a sentimental message wishing you good cheer. This lift challenge has three wonderful examples to jump start your creativity.

Santa Claus is Coming by cocodou

This cheerful card features a stylized Santa Claus on a white background. Santa, placed on the far right side, is perfectly balanced by the seasonal colors on the far left. And the loop-da-loops add movement and connects the two. This talented artist has a unique style that is instantly recognized and full of flair.

Christmas Card No. 3 by myla

Featuring two darling children decked in festive clothing, this card oozes holiday charm. The black and white striped transfers acts as a mat adding more focus on the happy kids while the black elf and lettering gives a modern twist to this seasonal greeting. A gifted designer, this artist always creates art showcasing her children’s activities that preserves these special moments in their life.

Peace by Miki

A row of watercolor evergreens horizontally placed across the page and behind large letters spelling out PEACE perfectly delivers its important holiday message of love and acceptance. Extremely imaginative and technically skilled, this accomplished artist always creates designs that are not only beautiful but also are also inspirational.

Thank you, cocodou, myla and Miki, for sharing your inspirational design and creativity.

I don't make holiday cards, but this was Portland's holiday card to me. It was delightful watching the windows being painted over a couple of days, while the cinnamon bread was being baked :-)
