Under Lock and Key - TIO #37 Challenge Piece

I had a great time doing this for the TIO challenge this week. It is made from a piece of grunge board, so feels a bit like leather... It is covered with gesso and paint dabbers, alcohol inks, distress ink in soot and mica powders. The large attachment is made from black UTEE, melted in the pot and poured on to the table. I added a metal lock piece whilst it was hot . When the UTEE cooled, I brushed it with various cosmic shimmer mica powders...

I want to  make this into the cover of a tag book, which will have the darker, door and grungy images inside. There may well be fragments and small tags attached too, but not got that far yet!! I was only able to add any of these fab metal findings because I shall be keeping it!!! I am just so stingy, eh?? Just LOVED doing it. The stamp was one of the distressed ones from the QVC foam sets... it is a bit more noticeable irl, but not scanned well. Mostly it's pure texture!!!!
Thanks for looking
