Cottage Door, 4" x 6"
When the FFF Challenge came out, I was excited. I had taken about 1,000 photos in Carmel between Christmas 2011 and New Years Day 2012. I was so disappointed that the wedding photos were so awful, I had just stuck the album away on my computer. Now, I had an excuse to examine it.
Friday evening I went through lots of building, door and window photos. Finally, I found this little turquoise door which held me enchanted. I printed it using my Epson pigment printer late Friday night. I thought I would just 'stitch it up' in the morning. Almost 12 hours later it is done. In person, it is tactilely dimensional. I stitched in layers similarly to what I did in 'Nine Patch in White'. http://designerann.blogspot.com/2013/02/nine-patch-in-white.html
I love the idea. However, I thought I would go nuts stitching the window panes. I will NOT be doing that again. I got very tired of the stitching when it was only about 1/3 done. Hopefully, it is a lesson learned.
Although I like it. It was way way too too much work for the final result as a post card. I think it would not have been any more work to make it in a larger size.
