OUAT November 2022 childrens book Dreamers

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This is my 4th design team commitment for Once Upon A Time challenge blog. It just started in August with the premise of inspiring crafting from a children's book cover or its actual content pages. 

November's selection is Dreamers by Yuyi Morales. 

Here is my interpretation of the book cover using supplies from my various stash supply boxes=

My elements that make a nod to the book cover are: wispy cloud swirls, sun/rays, butterfly, flowers, mother and child, gold letter fonts in the pale peachy-pink tiles, and lots of the soft beige, white, yellow, and pink tones to contrast with some bolder colors. 

I did try to tone down the boldness of the wavy striped paper by covering it with a peach crayon application. But that just affected it a wee bit. 

Overall, because I've used items from my stashes and didn't have to download or buy anything, I'm pleased with the dreaming mom holding her precious baby and the wistful scenery surrounding them.

Here's Deanne's selected book feature cover:
