  • 30. >>> Group 8: Techniques - Colour


    Can you believe it?? We've made it to number thirty already!! This night has sure gone quick!!!

    We are now looking at the best use of colour in a wallpaper. Colour can add tone and mood to a piece, have symbolic meaning, or be there to simply pop with its vibrance. Regardless of how it is used, colour can make or break a piece, and these winners sure knew how to 'make' it!!!

    We had an amazing 37 entries in this category, and I am now excited to reveal our top ten (with a tie in there!), our runners up and our honourable mentions...

    I think I just fell in love with the design of the award wicca jaz made for Sharonalee.

    Congrats to the winners (how many times did I say these words already, my limited English is seriously showing. ) and my personal favorites in this category were Aureola, JJ, Jenni Lou and Zugma. So I'm glad to see they are also the top 4 here. Beautiful work ladies.

    Also thank you sara for my lovely award.
    and her haircut.

                        These awards are just too much! So many pretties!!! I especially love WiccaJaz and SayJay's designs! And of course the lovely design by Mara for my award! Thank you to all who voted! I honestly forgot that I nominated "Summer Lovin" in this category, so I was pleasantly surprise to see it had place! And 5th place even! That seems to be my claimed spot in a lot of categories this year, and I'm honored for the title!

                        I loved seeing the use of color in all of the nominations! Big congrats to all the other winners! Special shout outs to Nina, JJ, Line, Jenni Lou, and Elle! You are all goddesses of color to me!

                          And Nina steals the show with her award designs Especially the runner ups ones are out of this world amazing. I also loved Sayjay's And my award from JJ, thank you so much!

                          Congrats to all the winners - I'm super happy for Bre, even though she placed a lot higher on my list, it's still nice to see you there Zugma's Strongest Vice was with no doubt my number 1, when you do that Loki/Thor thing, I can never resist Also Jenni Lou, Aureola, JJ and Nina were amazing

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

                            Somehow missed this one.
                            Congrats to everybody!
                            And how cool is my award? Thank you, WiccaJaz!

                              This was such a tough category both to nominate to and to vote, I always struggle with it. And honestly I didn't - again - expect to get the first place. It's not my favorite wallpaper and I felt the colors/idea were not very creative. %) It's very nice to know that people like it! Thank you very much to all who voted!

                              My top picks were Jenni Lou (of course! And I'm happy to see that you got a high placement!), Ehlwyen (I thought the colors in your piece were very surreal and symbolic, and pretty; disappointed that it didn't win ), Leca, Sayjay, Nina and Sharonalee.

                              Nina, your awards rock and i adore mine! Also love Destiny's, Sayjay's and Wicca Jaz's designs.
