Another week of really great covers from the makeover team – see Lucile’s Wrap Up post here for all the very cool designs for “The Lord of the Rings”. Thanks again to everyone for joining in, it’s wonderful to see all the creative talent at work.
This week, it’s a movie. And it’s a classic. The Sound of Music.
I am well known for not loving this movie. It’s not completely true. I used to watch it so often, that it became irritating and I can’t quite face watching it again. Funnily enough, I went to Salzburg many years ago for work and only had a very short amount of time to see the sights, so I did The Sound of Music tour, which took us to all of the hotspots from the movie. I thought I would be able to do this cover, no sweat, since I’d been there to the actual places! However, those shots were taken when I was quite young, photographically inexperienced, and the shots aren’t as good as I remembered. I’ve added a couple at the end of this post for your perusal, which I did some very quick editing on recently.
But now, onto the cover! Here are a few of the original covers:
And here is my version that I created by using the Pixlr app to stylise the image with a silk painted look and the Typic app to add the text. The image is from a cruise through Milford Sound in New Zealand.
Now, if you’d like to participate, head over to Lucile’s Wrap Up Post for all the details.

Some pics from Salzburg taken with my very first digital camera, a Canon IXUS something-something LOL. Just try to imagine a young and naive desleyjane, fresh-faced from Australia, on just her second trip overseas, head pounding from all the singing about raindrops on roses while on the bus. So these are my very young attempts at photographing this gorgeous place. Can you recognise any of the spots from the movie?
