The Door of Fear


Remember that I had all this fullness in the door and I was wondering how to "work" with it.



The first thing I did was sew it down to this card board so that it would lay as flat.


I took some basting stitches around in a circle so that I could draw the fullness up in a central spot.


I took it off the card board and sewed shisha mirrors over the circles.  I made the shi sha mirrors  from a laminar  potato chip bag.  Shi Sha Mirrors were believed to ward off evil.
I think that is very important when looking at our fears.
 


I sewed a back onto the door.  Eventually I will attach it to the quilt.
I also plan to have the door open to another picture.
