    BEST USE OF TEXT

    These are the awards for best use of TEXT

    Wow that took a long time to do!!! That's right, we are now onto our TWENTY FIFTH set of awards and these are all about text and how it has been used!

    Text can come down to a number of factors, the fonts used, textures used over the text, the wording, size and placement, opacity, then whether there are shadows, gradients, or filters on tha text. We can all play with the text for hours trying to decide how best to do it, and sometimes it just works out exactly how you wanted it to.

    For this category we had 36 nominees, and we've now got our top ten places below, together with five runners up and two honourable mentions... take a peek!!!

    The awards in this category. So beautiful.... thank you Destiny for the fantastic award. And Piglet won something, I kind of love my Piglet but I didn't expect an award.


    I'm so jealous of everybody with a talent for typography, I'm glad Aureola won this category. The typography in all her work is to fall in love with. Other favorites were Buffylover, Zugma, Sayjay and Jenni Lou, all wizards with text.

    No way, people. Seriously? Among Zugma's, sharonalee's, Erin's and Ehlwyen's masterpieces? Not talking about my all-time love Nina's Piglet, which was #1 for me. I love text, I like the text-making part of fanarting, so it is honor to me to get such a high place in one of the strongest and loved categories

    5th place in text!? Never thought the day would come where I would place so well in text. I'm always jealous of people like Bre and Jenni Lou who are always place their text so perfectly. I usually feel like I struggle with it unless I make it an intricate part of the piece as a whole like in the "Springheel Jack" piece. Thanks so much to all who voted and to WiccaJaz for the design! I seriously love every one of these award designs! Some of my favorite of the whole night!

    Congrats to the other winners! Special shout outs to Clement, Aureola, and Jenni Lou who rounded off my top votes!

    PS - Nina, your award design? Love it!

    Aaaww honey I'm so glad you like it, it's funny because I kinda think it ended up going really nicely with your Piglet wallpaper Which btw was amazing And also thank YOU for mine, I love the idea behind it and when I saw who made it, I was like "Of course, who else would think of something that original "

    My top picks for this one were Erin Nicole and her Springheel Jack - something about that wallpaper just speaks to me and I adore the smooth look of it, the colours, everything - so beautiful. Then Zugma (as always, stole my heart right away!), Sayjay, Aureola (who is the queen of text) and Clement

    In the end, we all are who we are, no matter how much we may appear to have changed.

    OMG, these awards are beyond awesome! Clement, Destiny, Nina, JJ, Sayjay, how did you do that and can I borrow your brains, ahh. Erin Nicole, I love my award too!

    Thank you very much everyone! And congrats to the winners! (Although, my top 5 were a bit different. So shout out to Ehlwyen, Wicca Jaz, Destiny, Buffylover, and Erin Nicole - I adored your pieces the most. )
