Around the World in 80 Days - Challenge 1 London England

Over at Artistic Document we are just beginning our journey around the world in 80 days. Who knows what surprises are in store for us (except the DT of course). Throughout this competition we will be doing a challenge every 8 days over 10 weeks. There will also be mini challenges thrown in as well.

This is the first: The connection to London England is the photo of my grandfather who came to Australia from England as a young boy of 7.

Inspiration : Vintage - dawn of the Mechanical Age
Technique : Steampunk
1. Pick a stamp and use on every project through the comp.
2. Grunge
3. metal
4. distress
5. clockface or timepiece

My stamp is one of Tim Holtz birds on a wire.(Just above the title)
I have distressed and inked the edges of the photo & the paper.
The cogs were done using Tim Holtz distress ink & distress powder (Vintage Photo) to give a rusty look.
The clock/timepiece was cut from Bo Bunny Timepiece paper. The background PP is also from the same Bo Bunny range.
