Smile New AnnaLift 07/06/19 - 07/12/19

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 07.12.18 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!)


Danse by clindoeil

Inventive and intriguing perfectly describes this week’s lift. A vertical design featuring a dancer seems to artistically float down the page. Appearing to hang onto the letter D, an ethereal looking sketch of a woman in a fluid pose immediately draws you into the design. A scatting of different letters in different sizes and shapes behind the dancer adds much graphic impact and visual interest. A muted grey background with a strong moss colored streak effectively grounds the image while adding depth and dimension. Further enhancing the dancer are pops of earthy color, a thin black outline and a mixture lines and stitches. Taken all together this extremely talented artist has created a modern day version of a dancer that’s reminiscent of Toulouse Lautrec’s ballerinas. With enormous artistic flair, she continually creates subtle yet fascinating art in variety of artistic styles that never fails to impress and intrigue.

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

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Create a vertical layout with your focal art placed on the right side of the layout.
• Include a sketch effect or a filter and/or illustration somewhere in your design.
• Try a neutral color palette with subtle touches of color.
• Use a plain background paper with transfers, stains and brushwork to add depth.
• Include a title and/or lettering that explains the subject of your art.
• Add accents of journaling, a variety of letters, lines and splatters.

ArtPlay Palette Sparkle

• ArtPlay Palette Neige

• ArtPlay Palette Kinsfolk

• ArtPlay Palette Evanish

• ArtsyTransfers Narcissus

• ArtsyTransfers Epiphany

• Double Simple Swirl Alpha

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!
