Challenge #78 was to create something based on the theme of doors or windows and to focus on contrast as the design element.
I first looked through photos to find my inspiration...a gorgeous door found in Scotland!
Then I made templates for some of the elements and carefully chose fabrics. The background is actually a sheet of fiber paper from my local art store overlaid on white cotton fabric (adds some depth), and the paper sewed through beautifully!
I like how this turned out, though you'd never know it was an interpretation of the specific door used as my inspiration without a photo of it.
