Default New AnnaLift 02/01/19 - 02/08/19

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 02.08.19 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!)


London Today by dady

Using a different format this week. I’m visiting my Texas tribe in Houston, so I asked my eight year old nephew, Jake, to help me select this week’s inspiration art. He liked Dady’s art the best and here’s why:

1. The texture in the sky.
2. Contrasting colors between the architecture/building and sky.
3. Only part of buildings were colored in.
4. Liked how nature blended in with modern look.
5. The orange dude made you look at the photo.

He’s a very bright and verbal kid and I agree 100% with his choice. This extremely talented artist has created a stunning design that blends the organic feel of nature with the esthetic of modern architecture—combining and contrasting both while reflecting the beauty surrounding us regardless of our locale, urban or rural.

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

IDEAS TO INSPIRE: Use ONE or MORE of the following in your AnnaLift layout.
• Showcase a city, landscape, vacation spot, or scenic view
• Design a layout that spreads across the entire page.
• Create a background using transfers, stains, gesso, paper textures and brushes.
• Use a partially-filled in sketch technique on one section of the art
• Construct a sense of perspective that leads the eye into your design.
• Accent with buttons, stitchez, artstrokes and other elements.
• Use a color palette of blues, greens, tans and brown.

• ArtPlay Palette Paraiso

• ArtPlay Palette Lateritious

• ArtPlay Palette Evanescent

• ArtPlay Palette Glacial

• ArtsyTransfers Sonoma

• ArtsyTransfers Scenic

• ArchiTextures No. 6

• ArchiTextures 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!

Thank you for the inspiration Dady. I probably would not have done much with this photo, but now it can be a focal page from the evening in Louisville.
Thank you Christy and Jake!
