New AnnaLift 07/13/19 - 07/19/19
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 07.19.19 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!)


Soccer-Soccer-Soccer by NAdams

Energetic and exuberant totally describes this week’s lift. A large mainly black and white image of a young man playing soccer dominates the center of a bright and vibrant layout. Another duplicate photo image contrasted against the graffiti-filled background adds a realistic and riveting effect. A white outline around the large focal image creates depth and separates it from the lively backdrop. The strong colors of red, yellow and green magnify the active atmosphere while the grungy brushwork convey an electric vibe. Letters, words, scribbles and numbers heighten the gritty aura of the action-oriented art. Extremely talented, this artist has elevated a common outdoor activity to an electrifying sporting event filled with excitement.

Thank you, NAdams, for sharing your inspirational design and creativity.

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Showcase a sporting event or an outdoor activity in your design.
• Include a duplicate of your focal image somewhere in your layout.
• Try a bright color palette of primary colors with touches of white and black.
• Add some graffiti or grunge or a gritty effect to your background.
• Create a “sticker” effect on something in your art.
• Add accents of buttons, a variety of wordArt, lines and splatters.

• ArtPlay Palette Uplift *New & On Sale*

• ArtPlay Palette Downtown

• ArtPlay Palette Metro Graffiti

• ArtPlay Palette City Limits

• ArtsyTransfers Metro Graffiti

• ArtsyKardz City Limits

• Splatters No. 5

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.

Thanks for ArtPLAY-ing with us! :)
