Winners' Showcase: Design & Critique "You Complement Me"

Having taken on the judging of this contest a bit late in the game, and having NOT reviewed the color wheel, and being unable to remember what the darn thing looks like; I judged the contest based on aesthetic. DUH right!! I picked sets that looked to keep to the theme of complimentary colors. I really like this group of winners. The sets were just ....well, so pretty :-)
  • Solar Flare
    "The 1st place winner is @telynor. Even before I knew I'd be judging I had my eye on this set. It's gorgeous. The colors and movement keep me tranfixed. I see it above the fire place getting oohs and ahhs from guests. Congrats to a well deserved winner!" — @justjules2332
  • YELLOW AND PURPLE
    "The 2nd place winner is @patrizia-brasil. This is a set I could put on my wall. I love it. The colors, the design, the texture, it's just all so beautiful. Amazing." — @justjules2332
  • Modern Decorating
    "In 3rd place is the ultra modern interior set by @summersunshinesk7. I love this and if I was young and had an apartment this is just what it would look like. The green and pink with other colors thrown in is amazing! Great job!!!" — @justjules2332
  • Untitled #35
    "The 4th place winner is @ladypiraterose. It's hard to do red and green and not scream Christmas. I didn't even think of Christmas until I had looked at it for awhile. I love the brightness and the design is fabulous." — @justjules2332
  • Purple flower Yellow flower, opposites attract
    "In 5th place is @kathy-martenson-sanko. This isn't a picture of flowers, this is a homemade arrangement. If Kathy doesn't do this for a living, she needs too. I would order this bunch immediately! Love the yellow and purple. So beautiful!" — @justjules2332
  • the Rose of Murphy's pub
    "The 6th place winner is @vervetandhowler. I love this set. It is such a clever use of red and green, it's a little art, a little interior/exterior, a little fashion, amazing. I love all the different angles. Very very eye catching! Lovely!" — @justjules2332
  • Ruby Woods
    "The 7th place winner is @colbysma. I could put this piece on my wall. I love it. Simple but fluid and soft. The red and green flows but both colors remain vivid and bold. Love it!!" — @justjules2332
  • Natural Form in a Candy Tin
    "The 8th place winner is @scribblegoat. I love these types of sets. When you see all the details that went into it you become transfixed. The colors are amazing with orange and blue working together perfectly. Nice set!!" — @justjules2332
  • Complementary Study
    "The 9th place winner is @raagdog. I thought this set captured red and green so skillfully and simply but with interest. I love the softeness but at the same time the lines are bold and edges strong. There is contrast everywhere, not just in the colors." — @justjules2332
  • Kickin' It
    "In 1oth place is @ruby-flip-flops! I'm always intrigued by sets that have a very purposeful sense of humor coupled with amazing art. This set is fun, it's clever and it is a great way of showing orange and green together. Well done." — @justjules2332
  • Emergent
    "The 11th place winner is the mesmerizing set by @merimagic. I love the movement in this set and how the light and dark tan colors just meld into the blue. This captured my eye right away. Just beautiful!!" — @justjules2332
  • Mad About Plaid
    "In 12th place is a fashion set by @nancy-ellyn. The "red" and "green" together is the perfect style statement. Not only is the outfit just lovely, the styling and the colors make it look bold and sophisticated. Very nicely done." — @justjules2332

WOW! I don't know if I even deserve to be in this magnificent group of Art Sets!!!! Your comments are so thoughtful and welcome. I love that you take the time to critique each selection, and I am learning from that. i know how long it takes just to view all the entries, thoughtfully consider them, narrow them down, and eventually place them. The additional critique is above and beyond, and I, for one (and, I'm sure everyone agrees) appreciate your constructive comments! Kudos to YOU @justjules2332! You are a gem and a jewel, as a friend and a tremendous asset to the Polyvore community! xxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
