Tractor ride

I love the challenges at A2Z Scraplets, not least because I have quite a stash of their products (some is very old and out of production).  This month the challenge is a sketch - double bonus for me because I *love* sketches too.

This is my layout:

I used some pieces from A2Z Scraplets Cog Set 3:

I gesso'd then misted all of the pieces, then gave each a different treatment over the top. I covered the middle-sized cog in patterned paper, then sanded and inked; I gave the other two cogs a smattering of embossing powder which stuck to the residual wet bits of paint, and then I heat embossed them to give a faux-rust appearance.

I'm also submitting my layout at Rhedd & Rosie's for their Anything Goes challenge.

Other materials:
Basic Grey Sublime - Confused patterned paper
Memories Mist Fruit Punch
Tsukineko VersaColor - Sand Beige ink
Cosmo Cricket Togetherness - Birds of a Feather patterned paper
Basic Grey Sugared mini monogram stickers
Doodlebug Beetle Black buttons
