Anything Goes

This is my entry for the latest Challenge Me Happy challenge. It's a bit different to my usual style, but it was lots of fun.
I have no idea what paper it is, I have had it in my stash for as long as I can remember.  First I clear embossed the background with my Star Wheel from Stampin' Up! Then I painted over it with white acrylic paint & wiped it back off before it was properly dry.  I think it looks cool & I might have to do this technique again. Then I used gesso through my Tim Holtz mask & painted over it red.I ripped the hole for the pic & peeled as much paper off the back as I could so the curls were while, not green as other side of paper.  I used Tim Holtz walnut distress Ink on applicator to do some spot thingys & make it less 'clean'.
The cluster in the bottom corner is a Prima wheel, a stamp, some buttons & beads, piece of cork tile, art sand, a brad, mini razor wire (Warhammer, thanks hubby), the electronic thing from something & some old Basic Grey Chipboard stickers.

The title is some old chipboard lettering, embossed through cuttlebug, painted white, inked green, then inked with walnut ink.
Here is latest school LO I have done.
This is a fob watch thing I got from Spotlight to hang on my handbag.  It didn't work as expected.  The plastic cover was really difficult to get off & not sure how you would put it back on, but what is the point if you can't open it to put something inside?  I accidently filled the hinge with dimensional magic so had to take the cover off.  Still looks ok & does the job I wanted.
