Els Mommers – Series #4 – Old Cathedral Door
This is the first door that I made. It was for the theme: Entrance and I saved it to use it for when I would not be able to send in a new door because of being away.It is this door that was my inspiration for my series.
I started by doing free motion quilting on some sandwiches (layers of fabric) and tried different colors thread and gold paint. One of the sandwiches I choose to make the door. On another piece of fabric I used gesso to paint the stones for the doorway, over painted it with different colors of fabric paint and outlined it with black acrylic paint.
Doors and doorway are stitched on a piece of rusted fabric. Pilars are made of fabric paper and the “sculpture pieces” are made with puffpaint, heated with a heat gun and painted with gold metallic paint. On the black silhouette of the lady I used some Markal paintstick.
Technique: raw edge applique, fabric painting, rusting, hand piecing, free motion quilting.
