Up & Away | Christy
Apply a filter to your photo to yield a painterly effect before blending and pairing your image with one of the artsy papers in ArtPlay Palette Meadow.
You can do this by applying multiple filters in Photoshop following this Water Color Effect tutorial.
Consider also using a phone app to process your photos before you import them into Photoshop.
Oh the Places She’ll Go | Linda
Modify Your Elements.
Use the same element multiple times but vary the size and rotation to create a level of variation in your design.
Notice how Linda has used the same red flower element from MultiMedia Flowers No. 4 3 different times, but has created visual interest by altering the size and rotation of each element using the Transform tool in Adobe Photoshop and Elements.
Learn more about this principle in this video tutorial.
Beach Time | Trudy
Traditional Artsy Approach.
Add a little traditional to your artsy layered with some dimensional embellishments to mimic some of the motifs found in paper scrapbooking.
Notice how the straight lines and sharp corners of the LabeledWords and Frames in the Artsy Layered Template creates Tension in the design, which excites the eye and add an unexpected component to the layout.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING:
“I decided to break away this year from my normal minimalist style and strike out and I am so glad I took the plunge with Anna’s ArtPlay 2017. In this first month I’ve already learnt things I would not have had the nerve to try before (and it worked!). The video was clear, the feedback invaluable and you don’t have to use PS – I use Paint Shop Pro and all downloads have worked perfectly”. Thanks Anna.” – Lorraine
If you have an opportunity to take a class from Anna Aspnes DO IT! You won’t regret it. Her classes allow you to see her decision process in real time and takes the mystery out of the ‘how does she do that’ questions. No matter whether you are a beginner or an advanced student you will learn something new in every class.” – Barb
“Love the ArtPLAY classes. This newest one is so wonderful! I thought at first – I can’t do this – I’m new to Photoshop – I don’t even know the tools…. But just following Anna’s directions, I am now playing with a bunch of photos. I even had one printed on metal and the people I have showed it to just go – WOW! Anna is a impressive artist and I can’t wait to continue with her Brush class next! I really didn’t know Photoshop could do all this stuff.’ – Virginia.
