After that I used the Sweet Mix blackboard letters from Cosmo Cricket for my title. You can attach these letters using a wet adhesive, but I used the Tape-N-Roller from Kokuyo. It has a really strong hold and doesn't ripple the paper. It has become my personal favorite adhesive. (A great thing about blackboard letters is you don't have the chipboard edge showing on the side of the letters. It's black all the way through.)

Here is a layout I just finished this weekend. I used the Old World paper line from KaiserCraft. Below are a few examples of techniques I used.
First I painted the word and key with the paint dabber. Then after that dried, placed it on the hammer mat and texturized until I got the look I wanted.
Use the cotton ball to apply ink across the chipboard pieces. This should make it look like old metal.For the letter A I used the plain Grungeboard alphabets and ran it through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss it. Then I inked it, using a cotton ball, with Vintage Photo ink first and then Black Soot ink on top of that. Next I applied a thin coat of glossy accents to give it that glossy leathered look. NOTE: the Black Soot ink was applied directly from the ink pad. Hold it evenly accross the letter so it only inks the raised part.
On my background page I used the Timeworks masks by Tim Holtz.
I used the Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a cotton ball to apply it to my page.
I love the self adhesive Felt Fusion. For this page I cut it apart so the swirls would go different directions.
On the chipboard word life I used the Radiant Rain paint dauber to give the letters a shimmer look.
