Scrapmatts Sept Challenge

Hi girls,
I have this month's new challenge at Scrapmatts to share with you.  The criteria is very simple, just scraplift a LO, card or project from one of the Design Team girls... easy peasy!!  remember to use your Scrapmatts chippies to be in the running for the fab prize!
- and there are lots to choose from just click one of the links below :)

(Angella Peardon's gallery, Jenny Garlick's gallery, Julene Matthews's gallery, Renee Iveson's gallery, Ilene Tell's gallery, Cathy Cafun's gallery, Sonia Thomason's gallery, Anne Patterson's gallery, Kim Kendell's gallery, Leanne Jago's gallery, Jolanda Simons's gallery, Trish Rheinberger's gallery, Sharmaine Kruijver's gallery or Kylie Symons's gallery.)

Trip - Dubbo Zoo

Here is Jolanda's page which I scraplifted.
I decided to scraplift a LO created by Jolanda.  I replaced her circular photos with Scrapmatts gears and used some of the larger gears as the frame for my photo.  I also used the gears to replace some of the circles in the layered edges.  After seeing Angella use the Viva Decor Ferro paste in her Brisbane Papercraft Class earlier this year, I am totally hooked... love the sandy texture with the gorgeous metallic colours.  I used some old gold Ferro on the edges of this LO.. it looks much better IRL.  I also had a play with some of the new Stampendous aged embossing enamels to alter some of the gears.. again hard to photograph, but they are fabulous to use on chipboard.
List of Materials:  Scrapmatts Moving Gears CB4046, Gear Frame 01 CB5005, Gear Frames 04 CB5041, Gears 01 CB1072, Gears 02 CB1073, Gears 05 CB1078 Assorted Words 04 CB4051, Assorted Words 02 CB1136, Bo Bunny, 7 Gypsies and Rose Moka pp's, October Afternoon mini alpha stickers, Viva Ferro paste, Stampendous aged embossing enamels, Brilliance inks, gesso
