Cover attempt # 1 for my upcoming short story: The Girl and the Guitar

I’m finishing up on a short story called The Girl and the Guitar and have been playing around with a cover.  I really wanted to commission someone to do it but we just bought a car and well, yeah, not much money for stuff like this.  So, it’s up to me and my incredibly lame technical skills that can barely manage simple programs like MS Paint and MS PowerPoint.

I downloaded Gimp, the free/share ware version of Photoshop and took one look at the tool bar and unplugged my computer.

Luckily for me, my husband said he’s going to help fix it up on his weekend and see if we can find a good font for the title and move the image around so there’s less empty space which is driving me absolutely crazy!

So why even bother showing the work in progress image warts and all?  I guess I think it’s interesting?  It may not be pretty to look at but it’s interesting. Hopefully, the lovely six other people who read this blog think so as well? No? And if you guys have any suggestions or critiques, let me know.  It should be obvious by now that I have no idea what I’m doing.

Cheers!
