  • 34. >>> Group 8: Techniques - Stocks


    LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, it is with a heavy heart that I annoucne this is the LAST of our categories for the night!

    [cue the violin]

    But, what better category to end the night on than Bet Use of Stocks? Of all the techniques this is one of my personal favourites, stock images can do so much for a piece, adding depth, a symbolic gesture, assisting with a manip, creating part of the texture, and more, and with so many different stocks available, it's no wonder that we have such different uses of them among our nominees!

    In this category we had 38 nominees, and now it is down to our top ten, runners up and honourable mentions to collect their prizes...........


    AND THE WINNERS ARE............

    Another pretty Runner Up wallpaper, thank you Sayjay.

    Well stocks, another big category. And Zugma is the Queen of Stocks, it's no suprise she won first place here, and it's all very well deserved. Other favorites of mine were Aureola, Sharonalee and Amber. But that says nothing, there were so many beautiful entries.... stocks is perhaps my favorite of all categories. Congratulations to all people who won an award.

        oh my god, I can't believe this is the last category already And here I thought I might have to leave the house sooner and miss it!

        Wow, such beautiful awards. I love this, because even in just the awards we see all these different ways people use stocks and there's no wrong way imo. Congrats so much to all the winners! My top pics were Lyn, Zugma and Mara
        would you do anything for me

Erin was my number 1 (I've already said it was my fave wallpaper of that year, so ya know!), Zugma my number 2, then Aureola & JJ, then Destiny and Sharonalee!! I had sooo many faves in this I spent forever trying to order them all!!!

            This is another one of me faves I've done in the past few years so I'm glad it landed somewhere. Might be one of my top ten faves in the last 3 or so years that I have done.

            Erin Nicole. Sara and Zugma took my top spots. Erin Nicole because you can just see all the tiny little things she had to do. Must have taken days to compile together. It's remarkable.

              Omg thanks for the award, it's truly gorgeous Sayjay!

              Have I missed Firecracker? He was in my Top 5 along with Erin, Aureola, Sharona and Zugma, who's pieces were all amazing, congrats to the rest of the winners.

              Love Nina's and Erin's awards!

                    Congratulations everyone! I always admire the hell out of this category because I find the use of stocks so... hard. My tops were J.j, Lyn, Amber, SJ and Destiny!

                      2nd place!!! Woohoo!!! I'm so giddy and flattered and delighted and honored and...maybe a little drunk right now

                      I swear it was in celebration, though! Besides, I kinda had to...I mean I had a GIF and everything...

                      Seriously, though, Thank you to every who voted from the bottom of my heart. I love that piece just as I love my "Fean" and I'm so glad all that cutting all those teeny tiny objects out to fill the room was appreciated.

                      Congrats to the rest of the winners! Stocks can add so much extra meaning to a piece and you all rocked it! Shout outs to Aureola, Zugma (All hail the Queen of Stocks!), Firecracker, Sharonalee, and Nina!

                        Congrats to all the winners and I can't believe I share a place with JJ, I feel so honoured Zugma, you are the reigning queen of this category - I still stare at Ice Inside to try and figure out how the hell did you get all those snowflakes to look so perfect I'm still not entirely convinced that you're not using any magic Also Erin Nicole's piece was fabulous, as well as Nina's, Sayjay's and Sharonalee's.

                        Also, look at all the gorgeous awards in here!

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

                          Ahhhhh I got the first place AND the prettiest and most fitting award! *hugs the award* (No, really, how is that possible that the award has those icy patterns and the crown in it. It's like it was designed for Loki, aww ) Thank you so much!!

                          Sayjay, I love your award design too.

                          My favorites in this category were Aureola, Sayjay, Erin, Ehlwyen, Clement and Sara. But boy, was it hard to choose!
