Smile NeW AnnaLift 5/27/17 - 6/02/17

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 Saturday 6.02.17 by 7:00 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!)

Slow Trip by Clindoeil

Sometimes an object is a symbol that conveys a subtle message—this week’s captivating layout does this in such an appealing way. Does the motorcycle with its sassy words represent your life’s journey or philosophy? Not really sure, but is it intriguing? Definitely, yes! The enigmatic symbol is also enhanced by the soft pastel sketch effect—also increasing your curiosity. The use of the light cream background paper highlighted by brushwork in a harmonizing color adds texture and interest while keeping the viewer's eyes moving across the page. Along your visual journey, you’ll also discover a myriad of hidden brushed treasures within the design. The mixture of fonts in different sizes also adds to the message’s mystique as well as adding visual impact. This moving art leaves one wondering about life in such a delightful way—charming all who see it.

Thank you, Clindoeil, for sharing your inspirational design and artistry.

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Use an icon, like the motorcycle represents a journey, as the subject of your layout.
• Incorporate a sketch effect or another unique photo treatment in your design.
• Create a background using brush strokes on a plain background.
• Add a few simple elements, artstrokes, squiggles, stains or splatters to add impact and interest.
• Use a variety of fonts in to enhance and embellish your design.
