All the gears and letters were cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I used all things pewter and threw a few stamps on as well. If you want to duplicate this layout, here's a few things you will need:
- G1057 WOTG Later Sk8r (this has the paper and stamp set needed)
- B1415 In Gear
- Z1790 Cricut Artiste
- Z1705 Studs
- Z1487 Pewter Mini Medley
- Z1366 Brad Assortment
- Slate Ink
- Outdoor Denim Ink
- 3-D Tape
Hammer the brads flat for a more industrial look.
I distressed the edges of the gears in slate ink. I also stamped textures on some of the cogs using B1415 In Gear. This stamp set is awesome because it coordinates with the Cricut Artiste. Layer and double layer the gears with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. Use brads and ribbon slides to finish the look.
It never fails that every time I finish a project, I can always come up with something else I should have or could have done. Have you ever done that? I've been seeing a lot of great things being done with the new glitter paper and couldn't help but wonder what this layout would have looked like if I had done some of the gears in silver glitter paper. If I had done that, I would have changed the embellishments to silver and not used pewter as it would have had a completely different look and feel.
