Default ***AnnaLIFT 10/8/16 - 10/14/16***

It’s Saturday, and time for another extra special challenge from Anna Aspnes. Each Saturday the AnnaTeam selects 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? Choose ONE idea from the page to lift or choose it ALL and lift it completely. There is no right or wrong way to ArtPlay. Be inspired and create your ‘AnnaLift’ and then upload your page to the Anna gallery, plus include it here in this forum thread. It would be nice if you could link back to your page in the gallery too! Upload your page by Friday 10.14.16 by NOON EST with the title, ‘AnnaLift ’ and one page will be selected to win a $5 GiftKard to Anna's store.". The winner will be posted each Friday here in the forum.
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
This week we are lifting Parrot by cocodou. I Love how she kept it small and the effect of the white space here! Wonderful artsy look and phototreatment and that way of framing without even using a photo frame is awesome!

Parrot by cocodou

I am so anxious to see what everyone creates, as you never disappoint with the lifts you create, so it is now up to you to choose just what you want to lift from this page. You may choose to lift a single element of the layout, or lift it all - whatever grabs you and takes hold of you when you look at this layout. Have some fun with it - I am sure the results will be awesome – remember anything goes, as long as you are having fun!!!
This week’s AnnaLift will inspire all of us in some way. Maybe you will choose too
-do an artsy photo treatment
-keep it small with a lot of white space
- frame something without using a photo frame
- use only a few colors
-have a textured background
- use some artstrokes

What creative ideas will inspire for you this week in the AnnaLift challenge?
Try something new.
Have some fun.
Enjoy a new ArtPlay or love an old ArtPlay
Pat yourself on the back for being an awesome YOU.

Fun timing for me. I'm in the process of moving from using a mouse 100% of the time, to mostly using my pen/tablet. I've developed an interest in digital watercolor, and "everyone" says that for watercolor, the pen/tablet is the way to go (control by pressure of opacity and brush size). It takes discipline to not reach for the mouse (& I have to say, I'm still giving myself an occasional "break" by switching back to it!), but each time I sit down, I feel more comfortable with it. I cannot even draw a stick bird, so I started this with someone else's sketch, but I did all the coloring, and even cloned part of the branch (yes! with my pen!) to make it more realistic. Thank you for the challenge, which gives me a chance to practice with something "real." So! Presenting my first attempt at digital watercolor!
