Doors ATC

The theme on the 9ATC group is "Doors and what lies behind them". I started with photos I had taken in Panama several years ago (each photo is of the same beach area, but taken at different times of day). Stamped a compass rose with black India Ink and let dry (it took several hours to dry). Wrote & colored part of the compass rose with a gold metallic Gelly Roll pen.
To make a door handle, took some used wrinkled and inked tissue paper, colored it with antiqued bronze and vintage photo Distress Stains. Cut out with a die and added a mini "gold" brad.
 Created a door, by cutting a square out of the upper part of textured paper. Inked with dark brown ink, then rubbed on some brown acrylic paint. Used some potato sacking and adhered it between two of these "door" pieces. Used the gold metallic Gelly Roll pen to add "fastener" dots to the left side. Added the "door handle" made above. Here is the front of the ATC:
When the "door" is opened, the altered photo is seen. (This side of the "door" is only inked, no acrylic paint applied on this side). Also stamped the word "voyage" with brown ink on a torn map (colored torn edges with brown Distress Ink". I let the brad fasteners from the front showing, to look like another door handle.
