FF Team: How do you feel about the placing?
Judges’ Vote: 1st place banner
Ms. heartoftwilight: I was really shocked. This was the first time I had done a banner contest. This banner was different because I went with something other than the obvious and went with the meanings I found behind the picture.
FF Team: What about the picture inspired you to design the banner?
Ms. heartoftwilight: I am a very visual person. I try to look at a picture and let it speak to me. So when I am designing the banners I try to let the same words come through what I design.
FF Team: How long have you been designing banners?
Ms. heartoftwilight: Only a few months. But I have been working with pictures since 1983.
FF Team: What draws you to the fandom/pairing you used?
Ms. heartoftwilight: Well, like my name suggests, I love Twilight. Edward and Bella pairings are my favorite, but I also love to do banners with other pairings.
FF Team: Would you enter in any other contest we hold?
Ms. heartoftwilight: Of course.
FF Team: Tell us a bit about yourself and your designs?
Ms. heartoftwilight: I am happily married woman, with three grown children. I started designing my banners for my own stories and then the word got out and I have been designing for other wonderful authors in the fandom. I have recently been asked to make banners for published authors, which I was so shocked over.
I have a production group for all my banners and manips and is open for all those over the age of 18 to join.
I have had several authors see my work and ask to use them in their stories. I am more than happy to do that as long as my watermark stays with the work.
Well, I have a manip that was taken, my name removed, and it is all over the web.
FF Team: Would you recommend the page to a friend?
Ms. heartoftwilight: Yes!
