Momenta got me all Geared Up !!

Hi ya!
It's Momenta week here at Helmar - but i think Postman Pat kept my goodies :-( So i had to go a different direction. The Momenta team will be working with our products as well and hosting our giveaway so be sure to check in their blog and facebook page daily too and you could be a lucky winner!!
A while back i made this card 
 and a few asked how i did it - well today i have something a little different but the same effects are achieved to share with you. Grab a cuppa and sit back and see how i got my Gears on !!
I started out with a journal, took the front and back covers off , grabbed some Chippy Gears & Cogs, Mesh, Helmar's Acid Free Glue and set to work.
Here's my front cover - dont look much now but wait and see..............Helmar's Acid Free Glue works wonders getting that chippy stuck down!!
 Next apply some foil tape (i did this randomly like a patchwork effect)
 Slightly rub the foil to highlight all the chippy and mesh underneath.
I covered my inside covers with some mesh......
 then applied foil on top.
grab some texture tools and get some texture on.
  i also added some extra texture to the bare spots and chippy gears and cogs for added interest 
 You will need some acrylic paint, paintbrush and baby wipes or paper towel for the next step.
 generously paint over your entire surface, wait until it is almost dry and wipe some off .
look now the paint grabs the texture - awesome Hey?? 
&&& Wallah a Steampunk Journal - Front Cover
 Front inside - oh and the back inside looks similar too - i forgot to photograph lol
 Back Cover
 Sharing is caring right? Well here's a few extra comments from my Boys that i couldnt help but share.
Jess says "Gee mum your scrapbooking is taking a dark turn lately"
Zeb says "WOW that is so cool did you do it for me"
got to love them hey :-)
 Well that's it from me for now remember to check out MOMENTA and all their gorgeous goodies and you never know a prize may come your way!
until next time happy creating and take care xx
