Scrap Our Stash August TIME WILL TELL Challenge ~Design Team~

TIME WILL TELL 
For the challenge this month think clocks, growth, numbers, 
whatever comes to your mind when you hear "time will tell" and dig into your stash! 
******
This month I decided, again, to dig into the Steampunk photos taken by the very talented Robert Allard:  http://raphotography.smugmug.com last March. 
Scrap Our Stash Challenges are a *perfect* reason to 'scrap out stash' of backlogged photos too!
This time a couple of pictures of my oldest son Arthur: 1/2 turned Vampire and my husband Greg: Team Leader totally armed and ready to fight evil daemons. 
Started with Tim Holtz paper from the same pack I've been using for many of the pages from this shoot, roughed it up sanding the edges with an emery board. The same treatment for both photos; trimmed with my old dull cutter for a 'shaggy' look them sanded down. 
Embellishments were varied:
Gear Strip is Little Yellow Bicycle Lack Cardstock. A few 'screw head' brads in the centers. Chip board elements came from BoBunny Timepiece collection, also sanded a bit. Stamped the STEAMPUNK in the middle of the blank clockface and then wrote the rest of the title in with Sharpie PEN. There are a couple of Graphics 45: Steampunk Debutante punch-out. Punched Gears were made with a Stampin' Up! Punch using a scrap of paper I had smeared leftover black, red and brown paint on from another project. Waste not, want not! The 'Badge' is an extra print-out of the ones I use to make out group badges... glued onto extra thick cereal board (Honey Nut Cheerios Family Pack... super thick!) and cut out with an Exacto blade. 
Pictures were a bit hard to take since it's very 'lumpy' and shiny here and there.. so I took a few.
