I have created this layout for the September Challenge at Scrapbookit.

This was the criteria

Create a layout/project that includes the following:
*Masculine theme
* 4 patterned papers
* Washi Tape
* Twine/ribbon
*At least one hand made embellishment.

The first patterned paper I used was the 12x12 background page.  I have had this for a while now and love it.  It certainly didnt need much around it, or it would spoil the paper.  I used a Crafters Workshop Stencil and Shimmerz Paints Texturez "Teal Me No Lies".  I also added some dot stamp and circle wire stamp using my new Stampendous Stamps.

Three other patterned papers were used behind the photo together with tags from Stationers Desk Collection. These tags hold the required "twine".  Letters are from Tim Holtz ideology collection.  The Chipboard "Hero" was embossed with Stampendous Aged Silver Embossing Enamel.

I made the gears using a Tim Holtz die cut, coloured with distress inks and Dimensional Magic.  The little centres I created with modelling clay and the melt molds.  Coloured them with Silks Acrylic Glaze "emporer's gold" and Liquitex carbon black ink.

Washi Tape I used was one from my stash and another 7 Gypsies.

Here are some close ups:
