I fell in love with the theme of doors for this challenge. It is my belief that our lives are a direct reflection of the choices which we make. We do not know what doors will open and what doors will close as we walk down the path of our life. However, the decision of the path we will take is usually left up to us. The title references the old game show "Let"s Make A Deal!".
This photo of doors for sale was enhanced through the use of Photoshop Elements. I printed it on Lutradur treated with Golden Digital Grounds. The background is a monoprint which I did a couple of weeks ago using a Gelliplate. I then freemotion quilted the foundation, adhered the photo to the quilted foundation, added a decorative ribbon behind the photo, and then added the black bias tape around the photo. I raided some of my old costume jewelry to add the embellishment at the corners of the photo. I will eventually be mounting it on canvas to complete it. This is the first challenge which I have done in a while, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
