Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 14

The next challenge is colored crackle.  I had a ton of fun with this one!  So many different ways to use this technique, but I decided to go with a Fall/Gratitude theme.  Here's my finished project:

I wanted to add lots of layers and a lot of texture.  The frame was a four dollar find at Michael's, can't beat a bargain!  I used Antique Bronze Distress Spray on the background paper, and on the leaf.  Love the little extra touch of glitz!  The Trellis framework die was cut from grungeboard, and painted and then distressed with ink.  I used cork, vintage foil, and paint to adorn the pieces inside. 
Here's a close up of the leaf, it was mounted on a cabinet card.
I used a piece of Wallflower paper for the background, and thought it needed a little extra something, so I used the Clockworks layering stencil to add some extra interest to it.
