Smile New AnnaLift 06/01/19 - 06/07/19

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 06.07.19 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!)

Please post your art in this thread and link to the Anna Aspnes gallery to win the $5 giftcard. Or include the link in the your posting.


Nyhavn by Tamsin

Scenic and spectacular accurately describe this week’s lift. A stunning sketch of a magnificent city, Copenhagen, seemingly flows across the page. The colorful illustration of the harbor reminds you of art done by artists sitting on the sidewalk and drawing as viewers watch and admire. A backdrop of a muted color allows the effervescent city colors sparkle and shimmer. Drawing you into the design is a large white stain that creates visual interest while highlighting the perspective of the port. The addition of a photo of one of the city’s most famous statue helps tell the story and adds to its charm. Balancing the image on both sides are touches of black, splatters and texture. This gifted and talented artist has transported us to a vibrant city—and I am more than thankful for traveling along with her.

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

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Create a “city/travel/vacation inspired” horizontal design.
• Try a sketched, painterly or water color technique (tutorials on the aA Blog).
• Use soft or neutral background pops of brighter color.
• Add an additional photo and/or illustration that helps showcase your location.
• Accent your layout with buttons, flowers, splatters and/or stitchez.
• Include some journaling, a poem, a quote and/or wordArt/wordstrips.

• ArtPlay Palette Milieu

• ArtPlay Palette Evanescent
https://www.oscraps.com/shop/ArtPlay...vanescent.html l

• ArtPlay Palette Notabilia

• ArtPlay Palette Noble

• ArtPlay Palette Coolth

• ArtsyTransfers Glacial

• ArtsyTransfers Airy

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!

Thanks Christy and Tamsin for this inspiration. I know. A bird in a cottonwood tree is a big stretch from a big city, but I copied everything else.

This is my first AnnaLift challenge, and I admit to being very intimidated by the professionalism of this style of layout, especially since I don't scrap using Photoshop. I decided to download the Anna freebies and try them out. This LO is for an old vacations photobook I am working on.
