Jaykita, Striking! Although I think the texture effect is wonderful on the foreground elements, it's "too much" when you include the sky. Any way to mask off the sky and do something less "busy" there?
Jaykita, no offense to you or Swampy, but I like your original version much more then the 'improved' one.
This looked like a hard image to work with (for me anyway), but I got an ok result after much tinkering. (It's kind of similar to Kiska's 1st image starting this thread. Spooky...)
BG: Tone and color corrected
A: Copy BG. FilmGrain.
A1: Copy A. Rotate 20deg L. ColorPencil. Rotate 40deg R. ColorPencil.
(Dissolve, 50%) Merge down into A. Set A to HardLight (100%)
B: MergeVisible (BG,A). SmudgeStick (PinLight 100%)
C: MergeVisible (BG,A,B). Craquelure. (Normal, 50%, Layermask for sky)
D: PatternFill-WashedWatercolorPaper. Levels Adj to center at 50% gray. (Overlay, 60%)

Love all those different creations. I made mine dark.
Sepia colored, embossed, merged layers, used brightening/lightening, merging layers, added flashlight.
Don't know how to use PS yet, haven't time at the moment to find out, lambs are due any day now.
