May Inspiration continues with 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Layout - "Escape"

Hi there..
Back today with my second inspiration for May on 2Crafty Chipboard.
A mixed media layout that I created using some of my favourite chipboard pieces and more from Prima/Finnabair.

Historical buildings and ruins fascinate me a lot and so for this layout I used an old 
picture of a castle. For this layout I have used various Mixed Media supplies and
 different techniques on the 2Crafty chipboards.
I started with applying clear gesso on the base. Then I added texture with white crackle paste and stencil, followed by Finnabair Metallic Acrylic paint with a sponge.

I also added some background stamping.
Then I worked on my chipboard pieces. 
For the Ivy cluster, I used two shades of Embossing Powders - green and golden. 
I embossed them with green first and then the gold. 
For the Clock faces, Decorative rods and word title, I applied white gesso and then 
distressed the pieces with vintage brown ink. As a finishing touch I added som
gilding flakes on these pieces for a more rustic look. 

For the flowers, I used the same metallic paint as the base. 
After putting all the elements together, I moved on to embellish it a bit more with art pebbles. I applied a layer of Finnabair wax for the color to reflect. 
Then I added art stones and micro beads. Finally some white splatters.
