"The Monk's Door" is my latest mini and I'm in love with all the fabrics, most of which I purchased from England Designs.
This mini measures 12" square.
Watch as this neat mini develops. This is why I take so many photos, so that I can see what's working, placement, shapes, etc.
I did an in-lay design on the door and I wanted it to be off kilter a bit. Sometimes straight lines aren't necessary.
A bit of black on one side of the door to lend depth.
I' used a lighter wood grain around the door.
Then I fussy cut white stones and applied them "artfully" around the wood.
Around that and even darker, aged wood to, one - show off the white stone and two - give more depth.
I wanted to do something with the tiny brick fabric. What better way to use them than as a sort of broken or peeling effect.
This is really shaping up but it need more..... Onward!!
I finally added more tiny bricks towards the top and then stones at the bottom.
