Weekly Photo Challenge: Create
Creating a cover for my book took a lot of visualising and my imagination went off in many directions. Eventually I kept coming back to one particular photograph of the sky – taken through the tinted back window of our car. A friend of mine then allowed me to use one of her wedding photos for my elf girl, and then I dragged out my graphics tablet and drew in the sleigh and reindeer. Lastly I needed to add the title, author, and catch-phrase. So it took a combination of photos and artwork to arrive at the finished product. I just love the ‘creative’ experience and can lose myself for hours in it. My book (a full length novel) was published on Amazon Kindle in 2010. The writing of a novel was a huge experience in creation!
