Weekly Cover Makeover Challenge (twelve)

Here is my entry for the PhotoRehab Cover Makeover challenge this week. I am a scaredy-cat when it comes to horror movies so I haven’t seen this. I understand there may be some dark humor; still, I’m not sure it’s for me. I did like Buffy The Vampire Slayer (and Spike) on TV which was created by the producer of this movie.

I didn’t have a picture of a cabin so I used a sepia filter to make this green house, with a partially open door, look more like a cabin. I adjusted the shadows and the film grain using camera+ to make it look a little grittier. Then, I used the Over app for the text. I wasn’t sure about the text color, but at least you can read it over my picture. I think the final product has an ominous feel-ominous enough to keep me away from it at the theater!

What do you think? Would it draw you in or turn you away as a movie poster?

Movie Poster Makeover

Unlike most people, I have never really been a big fan of this movie. But that doesn’t mean I don’t dance around and sing along to all the songs when I see it. Doesn’t make sense, I know. I thought being so familiar with the topic would make it easy. But, this cover makeover challenge turned out to be harder than I thought.

The theme and scenery of this movie are so well known that I immediately thought of mountains. I ended up choosing a photo of the Blue Ridge Mountains that I recently took, so no snow caps here. I am not adept at adding figures to my pictures, but I did have fun playing with the text. I think it turned out all right, although I am not sure it really conveys the happiness promised!

Still, *Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do* to you all! Enjoy your weekend as you sing along to your favorite happy tunes!

Thanks to Desley and Lucile for hosting the Cover Makeover Challenge each week.

Book Cover Makeover

Book Cover Makeover

I really liked the book “1984” and its disturbing concept of Big Brother when I first read it a long time ago. Having read it several more times since then, I was excited to see the book was selected for the cover makeover challenge this week.

For this week’s challenge, hosted by Desley and Lucile, I started by taking a nighttime picture of the moon-glow outside of my dining room window without a flash. Then, I rotated the photo and added the camera+ concert lighting and instant filter which changed the color scheme. I also adjusted the contrast. Using the Over app to add text was the finishing touch.

I think the grainy mix of light and dark sets the right tone for a look into the world of the “future.” I think it may be time for a re-read!

Novel Cover Makeover

Here is my version of a cover makeover for the book, The House We Grew Up In. This fun challenge, hosted by Lucile and DesleyJane, asks us to create a new version of an existing album, movie or book cover that is selected for us each week.

I love pictures of houses, so I had to take the opportunity to use one here. I cropped my photo for book cover shape, added a fade filter and used the Over app to add the words. I hope the hazy quality of the shot conjurs a feeling of the past and adds an element of mystery regarding a family history.

Album Cover Makeover

Album Cover Makeover

Here is my version of the cover makeover for Simply Red’s 2005 album called Simplified. This fun challenge, hosted by Lucile and DesleyJane, asks us to create a new version of an existing album, movie or book cover that is selected for us each week. Of course, I wanted to keep the cover subject simple, so I thought this clover close-up was fitting. I cropped the photo into a square shape, like a CD, and used the Over app to add the words. You should think about joining the challenge too; Lucile has the directions listed!

Movie Cover Makeover 070915

This is my entry for the new Photo101Rehab cover makeover challenge inspired by Lucile and DesleyJane. This week’s theme is: “Winter’s Tale”, a movie. I haven’t seen the movie so I can’t offer a review. It sounds like a romance story to me. The photo is from my archive and had a soft, mystical feel that seemed to fit the movie tag line. I used the app called “over” to place the text over my photograph.

Book Cover Makeover Challenge 070315

This is my entry for the new Photo101Rehab cover makeover challenge inspired by Lucile and DesleyJane. This week’s theme is: “THE LONG WAY HOME”, a book from Louise Penny. I haven’t read the actual book yet so I can’t offer a review. The photo is from my archive and had a nostalgic feel to me that seemed to fit the book title. I used the app called “over” to place the text over my photograph.

Here are the details of the new Photo Rehab Weekly Photo Challenge – Cover Makeover!

The challenge is to make a cover for the book, CD or movie that will be shared every Thursday. Every Thursday we will be given the name of a book or movie, etc. and the hosts will share their take on a new cover. We must prepare our own cover by using our archive photos or shooting a new one to go with the theme. Then, we prepare our post and publish it, remembering to Ping Back (hyperlink) to Lucile’s page or copying the link to the comments section of her post. The tag #PhotoRehabCoverMakeover will be used so that we can find other posts in the WP reader.

Join in the challenge for some fun!
