Strawberries in my dream by Rose-sary Strawberries in my dream by Rose-sary
My entry for Fotofolia contest

Only time and courage are needed to reach our dreams, our strawberry dreams.

Clock --> Time
Tiger --> Courage, strength
Strawberries --> according to some, to see strawberries in your dream means that your ideas and goals will soon be realized.

Finally I could finish it! :). It took me too long and despite that I have to apologize for the regular quality of the picture. My problem is that that I don't have a scanner at home, so I had to wait until today to scan my drawing in this kind of "public scanner" in the library. But when I got there it was closed T_T. So I took a photo with a camera (it says 1998) that ruined the colors of the picture *sigh* I just tried to fix it with photoshop, I hope it looks fine in your screen :meow:
This is irrelevant, but I just felt I needed to explain ^^;

Ok, I really liked the idea of the contest when I first read the rules but I didn't have any idea of what I was going to do. Then many things happened so I could't concentrate in the contest. By the time I had something, I could see that it wasn't anything interesting. One day before I fell asleep I was thinking about how the picture would look like and then this idea came. I guess it came while I was already sleeping :?, but I really liked the image and here it is! :iconilikeitplz:

I think the idea came because of what I was reading by then. About dreams and their meaning and an old book of symbology.
I hope it is ok that it's traditional. It would have taken me a year to paint it with my mouse -_-, Anyway it was fun to draw, I wanted it to look like those pictures in children's books ^^
By the way it is the first time I use stock in that way, I think I'm going to use more stock in the future, but that tiger took me ages to draw, I had never drawn one before :D!

Thank you so much :aww: I love symbols and dreams :D
And yes it is traditional artwork, I guess it doesn't show because I took a picture with a camera instead of scanning it ^^;
Anyway thanks again and I hope you'll have you dream :meow:

No prob. This came out well for a camera picture. Nice quality. :) One of these days.... or maybe I'll meet a tiger while eating strawberries, that'd be nice too. :)
