AnnaLift Challenge 11.11.22-11.26.22


aA Creative Team Member
Hello aArtists!

It’s time for another challenge from Anna Aspnes. The AnnaTeam selects a creative page or design concept from the Anna gallery as the ‘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 11.26.22 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: On Saturday the AnnaTeam posts a creative concept from the Anna gallery as the ‘AnnaLift.’ Check out the inspiration 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.

Jubilee by Applechick

Jubilee by Applechick shares a fun and jubilant generational portrait of a great-grandmother and great-granddaughter. Applechick journals about her mother’s skepticism about celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee - tiaras and all, but she plays along to create priceless memories for the young girl. Applechick uses a double portrait with an effect to intensify the red and blue. A horizontal band contains both expressive moments. The figures are extracted and framed by the edges of an artsy transfers and stitching. The painterly ground contains heavy textures and deep black strokes that balance the dark clothing. Sparkles, lace, and jewels are the perfect accents. The journaling shares the details of the memories with us.

Thank you, Applechick, for sharing your stunning and inspirational artistry.
