We were first challenged with "Opening". Any time I'm designing for a theme, I start with my sketchbook and brainstorm ideas for the concept or topic. Opening invoked the following ideas for me:
- Writer's Block
- Court (opening arguments)
- Body language (open arms vs open legs)
- Containers (boxes, food storage, etc.)
Although the threadwork is time-intensive, I do love the result. I will be practicing this more with my personal 5 x 7 challenge this year!
