Just goes to prove the saying that you don’t see until your eyes have been opened. While looking for a doorway to photograph in town I had never noticed this doorway/gateway before and it is on the main street, because I wasn’t looking for it.
This quilt for the theme for this Friday – Doorway – nearly didn’t make it. I actually thought Doorway was a simple theme and left it very late to start which meant a big rush at the last minute.
A very dignified London door. The whites around the door were badly blown (see the image below) but I loved the door itself anyway. Then I added a Texture by Shadow House – Oil Painting4 over the top and brushed away the texture from only the door itself. http://lostandtaken.com/
I now love the whole image. I’m finding more and more uses for textures and this one I feel has saved a wonderful door from being deleted.
