Scrapology August Challenge

This is my entry for the Scrapology August Challenge.

It was definitely challenging! I found the sketch hard to interpret, also my photo was 7x5 not 6x4 and I had to fit journalling in too! However as I worked through it, it came together quite well and I am really happy with it.

I used Bo Bunny Timepiece papers. The circle is done with some ric-rac I found in my ribbon box - I stuck it down first, to see how it would look, then had to keep lifting and repositioning it to put the patterned papers underneath! The cogs and gears are cut on the robo, using a UKScrappers download - I can't now remember whose, if anyone recognises it, could you let me know so I can give proper credit .... thank you. I also added some TH metal gears. For a bit of fun, I overstamped some of the cogs with a cogs stamp! The swirl is done with two different stamps (Dimension Fourth and Waltzing Mouse) and overlaid with a pearl flourish. The title is also robo-cut and I handwrote the journalling, then added a few pearls.

It's a lot simpler to type than it was to do!
