Amidst | Fiona
Emphasize a focal point by using 2 copies of the same photo.
Always make sure one copy carries slightly more visual weight than the other to draw the eye into the layout.
Notice how the smaller color extraction mirrors the larger monochrome version, but commands more attention.
Variety is the Spice of Life | Viv
Blend elements into your composite to create a collage effect.
This can be achieved in one of 2 ways:
- Place Transfers/Overlays from ArtPlay Palettes over the top of the elements to hide areas of the element.
- Use Brushes and a Layer Mask to create your own custom blend as outlined in aAdvanced Brushes for Photoshop and Elements.
Viv could have used either one of these methods to blend the frame from MultiMedia Accordion No. 1 in her layout.
Let Go | Donna
Use a pictorial or themed brush to create a matte for your focal point.
A matte is the foundational layer of a series of elements that creates visual interest in your artsy digital scrapbooking or digital artistry pages.
I love how Donna has chosen various shades of the same Hue to create subtlety in her design.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING:
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 aA Year of ArtPlay 2017, after which you’ll have immediate access to 9 months of artistry making content, plus a supportive community and mentorship from me personally.
