Then I visited the Scrap Africa blog and guess what their challenge theme is...
I also used this sketch from Sketchabilities only to realise I missed the deadline... hahahahaha that will teach me to check on cut off dates.
So it came to be :D
Here is my layout.
I used watercolour paper for my background and gesso through a lovely odd square stencil. I didn't have the LSG colours from this months palette so I used Starburst - Tiffany's Blue and Furry Navel peach and Whale Watch blue on the cogs. The papers are from My Minds Eye and I chose the colours from the palette.
I painted the cogs with gesso then coloured with the LSG mists, then covered with a coat of crackle medium and once dry daubed them with a TH Distress Stain in Walnut so it would seep into the little cracks. I then covered them with diamond glaze.
I did lots of stamping in TH Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and also with an Archival Sepia - the quote the arrow, heart and title.
