I've loved the chalk look that's quite popular right now but didn't realize how much fun it would be to do it. Part of the Beyond Beyond Day 8 lesson referred to this tutorial on making chalk board text. I picked a favorite quote, added some birds from my brush set Art Journal brushes, the edge damask (same brush set, there is also a CU version) and then attempted to add a photo that appeared to also be chalked on.
My base was kk_chalkmagic 100%,
kk_addsomenoise1 screen 39%
I did the birds and border following the tutorial. The only thing in addition that I did was add a little brushwork with a chalk brush in white where I wanted it to look more chalky. (birds especially)
I duplicated the photo and added a colored pencil filter (I used smart filters CS6) with the settings 6, 11, 28. changed the blending mode to soft light. Then duplicated that layer. I then put those 2 layers into a 'group' and added a mask to brush out the edges and some of the interior. See layers pallet below.
