CC3 Challenge #10 - Effect Powders

The newest Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge is from page 52 of Tim's book -  Effect Powders.  We cannot disclose the technique used as the ladies wish you to use your own copy of Tim's book to play along.
For this challenge - I worked on a burlap panel.  I used the technique on some pieces I cut from Grunge Board using Alterations dies - Layered Bee, Arch Frame and Pediments.  I also randomly rubbed some Distress Clear Rock Candy Crackle paint over these pieces.
First, I brushed Gesso over the panel and while it was still wet - I layered a piece of Tissue Wrap Melange over it.  Then I layered on my grunge die cut pieces after using the technique on them.
I added a Word Band looped with Linen Ribbon over the Pediment, an Arrow and Philosopy Tag knotted with Linen Ribbon over the Arch Frame after I rubbed Bundled Sage Distress Paint on them. 
I dabbed the base of the Light Bulb with Bundled Sage Distress Paint and the top of the bulb with Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle.  I added some Chit Chat Stickers on the base and below the bulb. I pushed Memo Pins into the sides of the top of the Burlap Panel and knotted a piece of Trimmings/Naturals/Black Cream through them so I could hang my panel up.
The word band says "reality has limits - imagination is boundless"

This is quite amazing Julia.

Julia, I am loving this wall hanging you created. Lots of texture here, and that light bulb is just the ticket! I have one I've been saving up just to use this technique that you chose for yours. You have certainly inspired me to break open the butterfly die I purchased quite a long time ago it seems, and have not used. Wonderful work on all of your elements!
