I cut a couple of ATC size pieces from one of the papers. And, I cut a piece of cardboard form the box the kit came in. (Great for layers and mats!)

Time to distress and ink all layers! I used Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap. I also did this for the large layers of my background papers.

For my background layers, started with this piece of paper that I "gutted." I cut out  a ten-inch square from the middle. This is a great way to get the most out of your patterned paper!

For this layer, I cut a 1/2 inch off of two sides. You can see I have used ink on the stencil: this helps guide me where to use the paste. It also give a great dimension leaving some ink exposed.

This is what it looks like so far. I still need to add the rest of my circles in the top left, and I want to add some die cuts to round out the design.

I'm going to layer these circles, and use more cardboard for dimension. Who needs pop dots anyway? :)

Both of these dies are from my stash. They are Memory Box dies. I used some of the dark brown paper for the gears, and the darker teal for the distressed circles.

I added the blue die cut under the title, and simply tucked the gears border under my circles/clocks. Popping these circles up with room to spare under them gave me enough room to tuck in the gears.
