I got out my trusty Compendium of Curiosities book and started studying the techniques, picking and choosing which ones I wanted to use. Then I went to my local craft store and purchased a black 9 x 12 canvas on which to mount everything. Finally I got out all my Idea-Ology goodies and Stampers Anonymous stamps and spread them out before me. And let's not forget my Sizzix Alterations dies too.
Here are a few close-ups with the techniques I used from the book...
Dabber Resist, pg. 37
Scribble Stain Distress, pg. 34
Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge, pg. 53
Rusted Enamel, pg. 41
This was just a Kraft Resist thing I did with Peeled Paint Distress Stain.
Rock Candy Distress Stickles, pg. 47
Weathered Wood Grunge, pg. 50
These are just a few I highlighted, but if you go back and click on the main photo you'll also see the following techniques from the book as well:
