Who doesn't love designing covers? When Misty over at The Book Rat announced her Create-A-Cover challenge for Fairytale Fortnight, I dropped everything and got my Gimp on.
I had a give a shout out to my German folklore. Be a dutiful servant and you get gold, yo!
One of my favorite tales...who doesn't want to see this set in high school, ala The Breakfast Club?!
(just wish I could make a better font for you)
Truth be told, I wasn't aware of this tale until I read (and loved
) Sarah Cross
' Kill Me Softly. And one side character caught my eye. And OMG do I want to know what happens to her!
I was going to stop at three, honest. But I saw this photo and it just screamed Little Mermaid to me. I imagine Ariel, at this moment, regretting her choice to leave her watery home for the sake of a handsome stranger, and contemplating jumping back in.
What do you think? Got a request??
