Key Purpose

Keys are very much  in fashion whether it be jewelry or wall art they are everywhere. I found a large key at the flea market last summer and have been hanging on to it for just the right project.  I bought a frame at the thrift store some time ago and thought it was time to get the two together.  The problem was I forgot where I stashed the key.  It did not detour me in the least, paint it and it will come or surface in my case.  I painting the frame a dark brown over the original color and then started to paint blue and white over that while each coat was still a bit wet.  I like the smudgy look and yes that is a word !
I used some script paper and a vintage image I got out of my files for embellishments. As I figured all along by the time the frame was done I found the key in my night stand, its all good!  All I wonder now is what did that big old key open............
