and my first Traveling Page arrived!
This was created by Elizabeth for my theme of Doors. Isn't it lovely? I just love it, but especially the vine around the door which I've always wanted to have! And check out that tiny frog just to the lower left!
When you use the key to open this door, this is what you will find:
"Every exit leads to a new entrance." How true! And the collage behind the door is so inviting! I wish I could step through.
And on the reverse:
What a wonderful fabric and how appropriate is that for a door?
Elizabeth did a great job of embroidery and felting (I think?) and created a great doorway to remind me that Spring will come eventually. Here is a close-up so you can see that she used both machine and hand embroidery.
Oh look! There's my friend the frog again!
I'm so glad I chose Doors as my theme. It has many good associations and inspiration. And if anyone watched the HBO movie Temple Grandin this weekend, you are probably thinking about doors in a new way now! Dr. Grandin is autistic and the film uses doors as a device to illustrate the amazing steps she took to build a productive life. The title of this post is taken from the movie, "A door opened and I went through it."
Thanks so much, Elizabeth.
