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 05.07.21 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.


In this Big Picture Challenge, choose your style Art Journaling or Artsy Memory Keeping :


I'm Late by gillie343


In I’m Late, gillie343 presents a charming and whimsical portrait of a bespectacled hare. The piercing blue eyes are enhanced by the monocle. Boldly, the Hare stares from the center of the design. The Hare is skillfully blended into the painted ground of pale greens and golds. Scripted text and inky lines generate from the Hare to add to the tension and energy of his thought and style. For a dimensional treat, gilliie343 adds a beautiful boutonniere of peach, blue, and sage. gillie343 creates a playful and stunning design to inspire our artsy journaling.



By the Macdonald by Tamsin


In By the Macdonald, Tamsin shares a memory of a gorgeous pastoral scene. A large focal image is placed in the center to spread across the page. The flawless blending sets the image in blues, greens, and warm browns. Textures of soil and grit become a visual treat accented by artsy strokes. Frames contain images that accent and add to the memory. Tamsin creates a stunning design to inspire our artsy storytelling.



Thank you, gillie343 and Tamsin, for sharing your expressive and inspirational artistry.

My goal was to incorporate both page designs into mine
I'm Late , by Gillie makes use of white space to focus attention on her subject. The addition of WA brings more information to the viewer. I echoed the use of white space to reflect Gillie's and WA to give additional information.
Tamsin's page was a gorgeous picturesque view of the countryside. My photos of Joshua Tree National Park mimic the beauty of scenic vistas. This was a fun challenge!
