Here are some children's book pages that I created in PowerPoint.

I created this page under the Design tab, then selecting Format Background, and then Gradient. I pulled the colors from my complete beach scene page (which you can see below) using the eyedropper tool.

Here's another gradient background that I created the same way as the image above. The only difference is that I added a text box and some text.

Here's a simple page that could be used for adding text. I added a gradient background, and then some images that I pulled from my main illustration. I then added a shape and removed the fill and played with the outline a bit.

This image was created similar to the one above, except I duplicated the shell and sailboat images multiple times to complete the border.

This is my completed beach scene page. I started with a free stock image for the background, and then added other free stock images to complete the illustration.
