Wow, finals are closing in and yet I'm sitting here, cracking my head on what to post for the competition right here!
(*cue dramatic funfare)
Capture your dream and win!
Hi guys! Our team member Aadavy has prepared a pretty wicked contest for you all! Let’s take a look at that.
THEME: Dream. Yeah, it’s that simple. Create whatever you imagine when you hear this word. Capture what you dream about during sleep. Or your deepest nightmares that are able to make you wake up. Or something you want to achieve or what you’d like to happen even when you know it’s not possible…just your dream. This is an opportunity to show off your art skills and creativity with something personal to you!MEDIA ACCEPTED: Traditional and Digital art, Photography and Artisan crafts
DEADLINE: Last day of submission: 20.12.2015 – you have got about 8 weeks to dream!
JUDGES: Team of Love-artists. Your deviation will be judged based on originality, skill, effort and link to the theme.

When I saw this journal, I was like wow, why not? The theme is perfect, I have the perfect picture in my head, let's do this! Let this be the first ever competition I joined!
So, like the idiot I am, I jump the bullet and submitted way way wayyyyyy before the deadline. (Too excited maybe? It is my first competition I ever actively participated before )
I don't even think I gave enough thought to it, I just went yup and bam. Sighh... I feels as if I spent an eternity doing this when I only spent what, five days?
But then again, I had this picture planned in my head 60020934092 days ago and was too lazy to actually do anything. But I actually did! And just in time too!
It was definitely a dream I dreamed of capturing which I finally did after much procrastination. (Okay, that didn't make sense but eh
I had so much fun creating this picture (we were having an intense water fight and shaving cream showdown 3 seconds before I took this picture
) like the kid I am. Which I'm actually not anymore, but I still refuse to acknowledge that. I am a kid at
Okay, getting awfully sidetracked here, but that's what happens when I had to much sugar out of nervousness.
Ahem. So I just like to take this opportunity and thank Aadavy
for giving the chance for me (this train wreck) to get my lazy-ass off the floor and do something completely new for me.
(although I've been on DA for nearly 3 years now)
Ah, my artwork.
Dear God, I'm pathetic.
I decided to post a second picture.
I received that rose one day, during Breast Cancer Awareness Day (or week.
) They were giving out free roses to every girl and women alike. Unfortunately, when I received it, I was to be out for the next three hours. So this poor rose was pretty squashed up when I finally reached home and retrieved it from the depths of my bag.
Miraculously, even though it looked half wilted, it still bloomed after putting it into a bottle! (it was the day I realised that I actually own no vases.)
And it lasted for nearly three weeks! I was pleasantly surprised and shocked. And now, it had finally wilted. I found the golden colour really pretty, even though it had wilted. So I was like hey, that's a dream right? A dream to stay pretty although it has already wilted.
Okay, no. I am making no sense right now. Oh well.
