    BEST USE OF COLOUR

    TWENTY! that's right, this is our twentieth stop on this crazy tour that is the AFA Award Ceremony, and boy what a night it has been! We've had lighting, textures, text and manips all done and dusted already and here we are on colour!

    Let's have some colour, wooooooo!!!

    Okay so I'm easily excited by the simple things in life! No, this category is not about keeping your colouring in within the lines or even using the right colours in a paint by numbers! Instead, our colouring category is all about taking the various shades and tones and making them work for our wallpapers, whether it using the colours to give the piece a certain edge, to differentiate between two sides of a story, as symbolic colours to add to the deeper meaning, or whether it is just to add to the overall tone and atmosphere of the piece. Colour tends to set the mood for a piece, be it bright and bold or sombre and delicate.

    We've had a wide range of pieces nominated in this category each using colouring in a different way to add to their pieces and it's an honour to see so many get awards for their colouring skills! We had 50 pieces nominated in total for this category, with 4 not eligible for awards leaving us with 46, so we have 22 awards to hand out including 15 placements, 5 runners up and 2 honourable mentions... here we go!!!

    .......

            LOL! I didn't even notice that!!! I have that many files open in PS at once going "now I think Jennilou has won an award from this person, and this person, and this person... how about JJ..." then then same for the next person. Guaranteed though that I've probably made mistakes along the way and someone has won like 10 awards all designed by the same artist lol!

                Am I the only one that became abruptly sad but then started laughing once they opened up the Honourable mentions only to see they were black and white? I mean black and white are colors but still, this is a color challenge...... No? Just me then? Ahem, carrying on.

                Loving all of the awards! So bright and shiny with a lot of random abstract shapes. Good stuff. And SJ's awards are just amazing, per usual. Congrats to all of the winners. Judging the color category is kind of tricky but everyone's entries were great. Shout outs to JJ, SJ, Amber, Erin, and Dianne!

                              I'm more shocked by Heather's absence of the rank than by my presence, well almost as I was not expecting an award at all, thanks a lot Demetreas!!!

                              So as I was saying, Heather was my gold medal, such an unusual use of colours, loved the piece!! Jenni Lou and Wendy complete my top here!!!

                              I love Buffylover and Aureola's awards!!!
