AnnaLift 04.13.2019 - 04.19.2019
Hello aArtists!

Welcome to a new AnnaLift! This challenge will run from April 13, 2019 to April 19, 2019. Upload your page to Anna’s Gallery by Friday, April 19, 2019 (8pm EST), with AnnaLift in the title and post a copy here, in this thread, so that we can admire your work. One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a $5.00 GiftKard to Anna’s shop.


Marianne’s fabulous page “To travel is to live.”

This page has an eye-pleasing, horizontal design, with almost equal amounts of white space above and below the photo. Instead of a traditional photo frame, Marianne opted to frame the photo through masking, making it possible for that young man to jump right on the scooter and take off on his next adventure. The non-traditional framing also works nicely with the edgy photo processing. Notice how the page is weighted in thirds with the title, photo, and scooter each taking up about the same amount of space, creating a very pleasing visual effect. The map brush combined with the scooter element (which she altered with a sketch effect) make for a terrific combination that emphasize her travel theme. To give the design a little extra punch, she added some wonderful pops of red. A wonderful page for us to study and lift!

Now it’s your turn!

Choose one idea to lift from Marianne's page or lift the entire page. Let your creative energy guide you! 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—please do that too!

• Create a page with a lot of white space.

Thanks, Adryane, for hosting. Loved Marianne's art, but I got distracted by this photo of colored eggs. But I did used several of the other lift suggestions like the mask, brushes, actions, and white space (even though mine was grey).

I wanted to do another lift to mimic the design elements of white space and brushes to emphasize the theme. Thanks for the inspiration - it's so helpful to have something to shoot for when you have a lot of scrapping to do after a long trip.
