'Take the challenge' October 2013

This month the challenge over at Faber Castell's blog was to create something that represents your cherished secret dream. Of course I have some dreams. Some of them I want to keep to myself but I have one dream that I can share. I really like to sing and would I like to sing more! I want to sing not only for my pets! I want to start in a choir. I'd like to take singing lessions and I'd really like to sing the opera! I want to be admired. But I'm to shy. I always sing in the shower and in the car listening to the radio. I have no idea if I can sing or not but once when I sang my cat bit me in the thigh! Oh, well! ; )

When I started thinking about the challenge and what I wanted to do I saw 'The Scream', the painting of Edvard Munch in front of me. I exchanged his anguished figure with my singing diva but tried to keep the background somewhat true to the original, but with brighter colors. I wanted to make it a bit happier but still that one can see the resemblance. Did you know that Munch made four different versions of this painting? I think this only one will do for me! ; )

The eyelashes are painted with Stickles
and the mouth with glitter glue
