This is my first time participating in IceyBooks’s Four Weeks of Fame Challenge. When I saw that the current challenge is for Heather Dixon’s Entwined, I couldn’t resist. I still have not read this book, unfortunately, but I was captivated instantly from the cover. Plus, I love fairy tale retellings!

My Cover:

Inspiration: It’s honestly really hard to top the original cover, which is already enchanting. For my cover, I wanted to picture a girl (more like a princess) dancing in a field. I wanted my cover also to be bright and colorful to give it more of a fairy tale-like feel. I also wanted to put a quote from a fellow blogger onto my cover and ended up choosing Yearning to Read‘s.

I’ve seen a lot of Re-Create Cover Contests but never bothered entering until last night. I was itching to do something on Photoshop since I haven’t touched it in a while. I stumbled upon The Sapphire Talisman contest on La Femme Readers and decided to enter.

I personally love how my cover turned out. This was my first time ever recreating a book cover so I was very happy with the results. Originally, I was trying to make the model’s hair from brunette to blonde to portray Julia, the main protagonist, but it turned out to be a lot easier to turn the hair read to represent Alora.

Tiny Cooper is not the world's gayest person, and he is not the world's largest person, but I believe he may be the world's largest person who is really, really gay, and also the world's gayest person who is really, really large.
