My card was inspired by the cover of The Other Einstein, a summer Big Library Read choice.

Well, it was hard to think of a book. To Kill a Mockingbird is defnitely in my top favourites but not an inspiring cover - and the Terry Pratchett books require a range of fantasy stamps which I wouldn't ever aspire to have in my collection. So I thought back, and went with The Man Who Was Magic, by Paul Gallico. Attaching a photo of the original dust-cover - mine was lost long ago!! Looking at it now, I guess in the end the pink of my card matches more my book cover than the original paper one. Oh well - I was inspired by it.

Here is my card for this challenge. My inspiration is my Bible. This is also for the F4A challenge.

Hi, I am new to this challenge and have a question - Is it necessary to make a card or can I make a journal page too? The challenge this week is really interesting and I am hoping to try and make a page with it. Thanks

For a mixed media challenge I'm sure an art journal page will be just great! In fact for most of the daily challenges, you don't have to make a card..except where it is strictly dictated by the type of challenge.

Ha, ha! There are a lot of favorite books that I wanted to do so I narrowed it down by choosing a book I've read this year.
