I need a cover for my new e-book, entitled "Your beautiful life." The
tag line is "Living your most creative life at home with kids".
Author: Karen Schravemade. The book is an inspirational guide to
living your most creative life at home. The cover should be in PDF
format, size 6 x 9 inch, 3200 x 4800 pixels.
The aesthetic I'm after is artsy, with a hand-drawn illustration feel.
(No stock photography please.) The title must be prominent so that it
will stand out at smaller sizings on my blog. Although kids are
mentioned in the tagline, I don't want the cover to have a "kiddish"
feel, as the book is targeted toward women. The key words to focus on
are "beautiful" and "creative".
I'm visualising a floral theme, with possibly a brown kraft paper
coloured background, whimsical black line drawing of lilies and
flowers, bright (even neon) colouring on some of the flowers to help
them emerge from the page in contrast to the rest, perhaps watercolour
splotches or paint dribbles, and perhaps hand-lettering for the title.
A juxtaposition of vintage floral and a bright, almost edgy modern
aesthetic. The hand-drawn element is important to me to create the
artistic, creative feel I'm after.
I've put together an inspiration board of images on Pinterest:
aren't necessarily to be taken literally, but are more to give an
overall impression of the feel I'm going for here.
