Altered tin to use as a magnet

Sometimes I have this passion to alter a very small items and this mint tin is such an item. Hard to fit a lot of staff inside or outside, but I think I really like the final result of this Mixed Media piece.
This is a closed tin

I covered the lid with some tissue  recycled paper, then added some TH tissue tape, then covered with more tissue and then added some TH stickers and some 7 Gypsies tape over and a key. Then I  added some EYELET OUTLET brads, ART letters from AC Thickers covered it with ICE RESIN layer and then, when it was dry, I splashed a few " blood drops" with red paint. The title says that art is a wonderful lifetime adventure. And then I worked inside:
You can use this opened too.
I added those Imagine-Inspire and Timeless words over   for vision (light), writing (pen ) and time and covered it with a very think layer of Ice resin to keep all parts inside forever.
