Step wise it would be:-
As an automation tester you should know what GUI framework you are going to work on, just its technical feasibitlity with the Automation framework you want to work on.
Then, start finding other areas like Reporting, Logging, Continuous Integration, Cron jobs/scheduler jobs, etc.
Once you know next step is to map your automation framework with the GUI. Start writing all test cases, and categorize cases which you will add in your framework.
