Smile New AnnaLift 04/20/19 - 04/26/19

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 04.26.18 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!)


How you live by hollyinjapan

Expressive and eloquent accurately describes this week’s inspiration art; it’s a non-photo design with a meaningful message. Mimicking a hybrid design, the collage of ArtsyKardz, stitchez, wordstrips, stains and flowers set on a neutral background immediately captures your attention. Subtle shadowing expertly done creates a three dimensional effect that emphasizes the unusual size similar to that of an artist trading card. A cascade of varied flowers draws your eye down to the artfully arranged wordstrips. In the same colors as the flowers, the wordstrips add a harmonious touch while imparting an important sentiment. Lightly colored stitchez efficiently contain and effectively balance the art. This talented artist has created a unique design that not only showcases her impressive collaging skills but also her amazing technique expertise.

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

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Create a non-photo layout or design a card.
• Try using a neutral background and accent with bright colors.
• Experiment with a different size than you normally use.
• Collage together a variety of different elements.
• Add a quote, a favorite saying or a few wise words in your art
• Include flowers or an element of spring in your layout.
• Use stitchez and wordstrips as a design element.

• ArtsyKardz Sashay MultiPack No. 1

• ArtsyKardz Radiant

• ArtPlay Palette Sashay

• ArtPlay Palette Inkling

• ArtsyTransfers Sirenic

• MultiMedia Flowers No. 4

• KrissKross Stitched Overlays No. 2

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!

I stuck with the option of using no photos - much harder than I thought! Thanks for the challenge!
