The cover of Colorful Blessings went through a number of changes as I worked through the process with the publisher, Taunton Press. This is what we agreed on and I think it reflects the style of the book well. The coloring page that inspired the cover came from my “Fun” journal, a little journal that began as a demo in one of my 2-day Art Journaling workshops. My focus was on the wonder found in gratitude. It was fun!
The Gratitude coloring page was inspired by the Gratitude Journal. This journal is one of my favorites. Back in 2012, it was the first journal I made while in an online art journaling group led by Bernice Hopper, “An Attitude of Gratitude.” Here is a link to that site: http://anattitudeofgratitudejournal.blogspot.com/
