My first step was to go through oodles of travel photos to find doors and doorways until I found this inspiration photo (a door in Scotland). Then I made templates for certain elements and auditioned lots of fabrics (especially background fabrics) to see how contrast could be achieved in the piece.
The background I chose is a lovely sheet of fiber paper (overlaid on a piece of white cotton fabric) that I found at a local art store recently. It sewed through beautifully!
As always, comments welcome!
