compendium of curiosities 2 challenge ,technique 2: faux patina

well hey there,
here I am nearly missing the deadline, so it is challenge 2 for compendium of curiosities vol 2 challenges, hosted by the wonderful Linda here...the technique this week is faux patina and can be found on page 58..I cannot post the details but all details are very carefully explained by the man himself on page 58. So here is mine :

I have never tried this before and loved it and it will definitely be something I will play with again. I loved it so used it on the tag background, the trinket pin and main plate

..over at Simon says stamp it is favourite word and Love has to be mine...
love gives us wings and helps us fly, it gives us strength and make us who we are, the love of our family and friends is the strength we need in good times and bad..so LOVE is my word...for Simon says...heavy stuff over..onwards...

sorry about the pictures, cant help myself sorry!!!

I am entering this for the following competitions:
