On Golden Pond

This week the cover makeover challenge is for the movie poster for On Golden Pond. We’ve not seen the movie but certainly know about it. Since the story revolves around an old married couple, we decided to use an old photo of mom’s great-grand parents! Here’s my process:

Cover Makeover: Six Days, Seven Nights

6 days 7 nights

This week’s Cover Makeover is for the movie poster for Six Days, Seven Nights. I have to tell you, I struggled with this one. Mom and I searched all through her photos (and that’s A LOT!) before we found one – or more we liked. I finally settled on something from a group of photos from mom’s trip to Jamaica when she was just a kid – back in the 1960s. But which one to choose? So many! Here’s what we did:

i finally decided on this photo of the beach. It has a greenish hue to it so I changed to black and white in PicMonkey.
