Today's challenge: Create an album cover

Today I visited Federica. She has a wonderful blog and today she had been tagged to do a fun challenge. The task was to create your own random "album cover".
I decided to try it out myself and here is my result:

My bands name: first random article on Wikipedia (a book title). The album's name: last phrase of the last quote on random Quotationspage. Finally the picture: 3rd picture on Flickr's "explore the last 7 days". All the picks were random and put together to create my COOL cover.

Now join in for some fun!


These are the rules:
1 - Click
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to
http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 The last phrase of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 - Click
http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover art.
4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. I used Photoscape.
5- Tag some friends to join in


I'm tagging: Samsmama, Nanni, Marit, Tiina and Alicia. Join in if you have the time and the desire.

If anyone else want to join in... let me know by leaving a comment and I'll come look! I'll actually have a drawing tomorrow and if you participated your name goes in the hat. What do you get? Haven't decided yet... A surprise!
