Mini Wednesday

"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!!

Much better.
I finally added more tiny bricks towards the top and then stones at the bottom.

Your ability to transform your imagination into fabric art always amazes me. This is a wonderful piece.

This is a great process description-and it includes the "whys" which is really helpful when someone starts to build their own design.
Thanks.

What a great mini. It is so awesome. To see all those details in only 12 inches is proof of a great talent. Congrats Rhonda. I just can't stop looking at it.

My thought when seeing the first picture was that it was a "panel". Oh my how wrong I was. Fascinating to see your steps. Great talent again from you. I can see how pictures taken along the way are helpful. You are a wonderful teacher.

That's amazing. You really are an artist in fabric. I'd never deal with some of the tiny things you do. I'm in awe!
