Joyful Mornings: Book Illustration

I’m so excited to share a project I recently worked on… creating paper collage illustrations for a fantastic book titled: Joyful Mornings: Mindful Poems for Inviting Happy Days by author and poet Kayla Floyd. You can grab your own copy on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your local bookstore.

This tiny paperback book at only 4”x6” is filled with 12 steps written in the form of easygoing poetry to infuse your mornings with lightness and ease and love and play and goodness (I could go on and on). Author Kayla Floyd wrote so sweetly and so spot on for how to create a morning with feel-good flow. The poems and words in this book are an amazing celebration of mornings and how we can all consider beginning the gift of each new day. 

I’ve always wanted to publish a book. I just didn’t know that my dream of making it happen would come in the form of creating collage art and hand lettering to illustrate one! I’m so proud of the work I’ve made, each piece designed to bring cheer and be filled with joy and lightness. I made 12 pieces of art – one for each poem – that reflects and accompanies the theme of each piece of poetry in a way that lifts you up and fills you with joy. 

Hooray for celebrating life accomplishments, books, art, joyful mornings, and of course author Kayla Floyd who has been a total joy to work with. I can’t wait for you to enjoy your own copy of the book and elevate your own mornings!
