Here is a layout I made for the August sketch challenge at Get Picky. I used a large chipboard key that I’ve had for years. I sprayed it with a bronze Tattered Angels and then added crackled accents to make it look antique. I then darkened the crackle with brown chalk ink. I used Tim Holtz grunge hinges and a lock. I painted it with brown crackled paint. Finally I added 2 broken jewelry pieces. One broken earring and a necklace charm. I also used a metal key and a Tim Holtz F token.  I also used a Prima recycled packaging so I can enter this layout for the Scrap for Help August challenge. The theme for this challenge was Fathers and you must use recycled materials.
I like the grungy, vintage look of this page. I tried to make it look like an old wooden door with a rusted lock and hinges!! I used crackled paint on the whole background to make it look antique.
