Shine Your Light | Fiona
Using Your Blending Modes
This nifty little function in Adobe Photoshop and Elements enables you to blend the pixels of one layer with another altering the color, contrast and visual interest of your artsy digital scrapbooking and photo artistry layouts.
Blending Modes are located at the top of your Layers panel and can be applied to any layer. Fiona has applied them to both her photo and the MultiMedia Suns No. 3 element placed on the right edge of her digital artistry page.

Summer Adventures | Christy
Apply Color Contrast
Combine color with shades of black and white to add contrast and visual interest in your artsy digital scrapbooking and photo artistry layouts.
Christy has added brushes in black, which co-ordinates with her title and the tones of her photo to create inclusion in the design of her page.
You may also consider adding black and white photos to your layouts.
This Always | Heather
Add Duplicate Elements
Use the same element multiple times changing the size, color and placement as preferred.
I love how Heather has the same gem element to create a scattering and has created variation through size.
The gem element is used to ‘dot’ the ‘i’ in her title is brilliant.

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.
