|Thanks to everyone who commented for the words of encouragement.
I created the main picture - the rooftop with street below, grass, hens, and, yes, ladder - about a month and a half ago. It's horizontal - just a bit of sky above the chimney and a bit of grass below the chickens. I did it for myself and had a great time coming up with it (base photo is the rooftop with street and ladder; I added the grass and chickens, scooted the ladder over, cleaned up the street, etc.).
When I saw the Book Cover challenge - archival AND extended - I knew I wanted to use it. I actually found more than one possible title along these lines, but this worked best for my purpose. Horizontal wouldn't do plus I wanted a clean place for the text, so I extended the sky and replaced the grass (extending the wall on the left) in order to have the space.
I did work hard on the text - style, placement, size, etc. - BUT I am soooo glad I already had the base picture done and had done the work for my own pleasure. I'd have been disappointed to finish just over 50% if I'd done all that work for the challenge LOL
