Digital Designs Inspiration 08-14

In Love with Paris | Barbara

Alignment With Elements

Place elements such as Brushes, UrbanThreadz or Textures along the edges of a blended photo to define the and draw the eye to the image.

Notice how Barbara has placed these elements around the edge of her photo to mask or hide any hard edges in her blending.

This is a great way to make those edges look like they are supposed to be there.

Sister Princesses | Marianne

Fill BigWords Overlays with Color

Hand-color BigWord Overlays using artsy Brushes and the PaintBrush Tool.

Marianne loosely colored-in areas of the BigWord Family No. 1 overlays. You could use the AnnaBlendz Artsy series or a variety of Brushes found in ArtPlay Palettes.

Jurassic Coast | Viv

Anchor the Photo with Elements

Placement of Elements impacts how the eye moves and sees the imagery.

Notice how Viv has created a band or linear design and placed her title and embellishments to focus and lead the eye.

You can learn more about this principle in ‘The ArtsyCanvas’, one of 3 class included in the ArtPLAY UnEdited LIVE #3.

Deb says, “The ArtPlay classes are wonderful in that they help me focus on what i want learn and improve. Focused practice and actually seeing how it is done.” 

Candy says, “Thank you for all you’re doing to help me advance graphically!  I look forward to each class, video, and great new supplies that I receive.  It’s given me a new way to use my artistic skills, since my full-time day job never uses any of those skills.  I wish I had time to do digital scrapbooking all the time.”

Barb says, “I am so glad that I decided to enroll in Anna Aspnes’ Year of ArtPlay class.  I thought hard about the price but realized that if I spread the amount over the year it was less than a movie a month….and that’s not even including popcorn!  The lessons so far have been fabulous.  Anna shows us specific techniques each month as we get to watch her build a layout from scratch.  She explains her process of choosing photos and digital supplies and she takes us through her thought process and she creates the layout.  Each month really builds on the previous ones and I can definitely see that my skills have grown over time.  The Facebook group has been very helpful both for comments from Anna and other students as well as being able to study how others have interpreted the lessons. So much can be learned from that!  I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings.  I’d love this class to go on forever.”

You can learn more and register  Year of ArtPlay 2017, after which you’ll have immediate access to 6 months of artistry making content, plus a supportive community and mentorship from me personally.
