Faux Wood - Mixed Media Decor

Hello ladies and gentlemen! It has been a while since I posted a new project, and I tried something a little bit out of my comfort range. I decided to do a little home decor project this time. Using a lot of different media to create the background, I went for a weathered wooden panel look.

Faux Wood mixed media crackle home decor

I used lace from an older Scraps of Elegance kit, rhinestones, microbeads, cardboard, and many other items (including Q-Tips to make the little berry branch). Here are some closeups and details:

I was inspired to make this from two different challenges. The first one is the Scrap Magic challenge - wood and rhinestones.  Here is the gorgeous inspiration board:

Also, when I saw the sketch at the Mistress Owl blog, I felt that a home decor item would do really well to fit the sketch.

I hope you enjoyed my interpretation of the challenges - both blogs offer great inspiration!
