We would like to let you know that this was the last challenge of this year. We will resume the activities of the Cover Makeover in February. If you feel like doing more covers during our recess, please go ahead and choose your favorite books, CD’s or movies. We will see them after our break. You can tag as always, and use the link below to submit your entries.
But now is wrap up time! Welcome to last week’s entries!
This was last week’s theme:
And now you will see the stunning covers made by the participants. We’ve included the links to their blogs, so that you can visit them to learn how they work and which techniques and apps they use. Go and visit!
Every week we see that they are bringing their covers to even higher levels of creativity, and that is fantastic.
Thank you all for joining in and making this challenge so much fun and original! We love what you do!
And the stage is theirs:
I will start with Sabina and Toby at Library of Cats. I’m including their submission to Challenge 20, The Happiness Project. It was fantastic to see not only the beautiful cover but a delight to learn that they read the book and liked it. Go to her blog as there is a very interesting summary, if you didn’t read the book.
Now let’s go to last week’s challenge.
Julie from Julie Powell: Photographer & Graphic Artist, Here is what she explained: This is a composite of several different photos, each actually quite pleasant on their own; Autumn Full Moon through the branches of a dead tree, an old timber hut and a overexposed blurry image of a person; gently blended with different settings so all would show up. I then overlaid the window and masked out the real view allowing the new images to be seen. Visit her blog to learn how she brought this dripping blood…
Mara Eastern was in her comfort zone with this challenge. She truly enjoyed making it and you can see that in the results. She and Desley do love horror movies! Well, I don’t but must say that she did an excellent cover.
Sarah at First Night Design is not a particular fan of horror but nevertheless made an apt cover for the challenge. Gorgeous.Steph at Learning: art, writing and more selected a photo that taken a while back of a shed at a friend’s house. Then overlaid a picture of a mask. She merged both pictures and added the Lugosi Burnish Effect.To finish she added the text using De Walpergen Pica font, and modified the blend mode in the title so that she would have some contrast against the background. Check her blog for more. Superb result, isn’t it?
Trev at Silly Old Sod …. made a brilliant cover. Here is what he said: “I’ve used a photograph of a building that is local to where I live. It has a sort of Gothic feel to it and it is situated just inside the gates of the cemetery, so I suppose it lends itself well to a horror story. I admit to being quite a fan of the Saw movies, but I don’t watch modern horror movies as a rule….”
Keep using your creative juices!
