I took the photo, cropped in real close on the face, enlarged it and grained it JUST A TAD bit in a photo editing program.
Sewed two pieces of Pebbles, Inc. paper (from the Real Life line) and two pieces of Karen Foster paper (from the Boy's line) into four patches.
Inked the skeleton key, hinges and brads to age them.
Slightly inked the papers after they were sewn together.
Inked the edges of the Fancibets.
Tore, inked and sewed the cardstock to the page to create the photo mat for the picture.
Sanded the edges of the photo and small portions of the background papers
