Jo is also sharing with us tonight her marvelous talents. Have a look at here Scooter page with instructions

Products:            Molossi cogs chipboard, Molossi Scooter Boy & Scooter Girl chipboard pack,
Aussie Scrap Source White cardstock, Teal Co-ordinations cardstock,  Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Broken China & Brushed Coudoroy, Texture Paste, Gelly Roll pens, Dimensional Magic, Tim Holtz cogs dies
Method:              Lay the chipboard cogs over the white cardstock in a diagonal direction from bottom left to top right and apply  texture paste over the whole design.  Pick the chipboard pieces out carefully and set aside for everything to dry.  Once both the cardstock and the removed pieces of chipboard have dried apply the distress inks applying them in a swirling motion using a Distress Tool applicator.  Once the area is covered – wipe off with a baby wipe to reveal the white of the texture paste but leaving the colours of the distress inks in the recessed areas.
Apply the distress inks to the textured cogs and set aside to dry

·        Trim your white sheet to measure 11.5 x 11.5” 
·        Cut the centre out of a sheet of teal cardstock
·        Mount the white textured cardstock in the centre of your teal frame.  Use the remaining teal cardstock to matt your photograph and to cut a few extra small cogs using a Timi Holtz die.
·        Colour your scooter boy and girl to match with your photographs.  I have used Sakura Gelly Rolls pens and an American Crafts Chromatix marker to colour the images.

·        I have cut my title from white cardstock using a Pazzle die cutting machine, embossed them using a Couture Creations embossing folder – Replacements  and then inked again using the Tim Holtz Distress inks.  I have added a metal link chain hanging from the “o” in Patrol to imitate the bike chain my son has around his neck.

·        Adhere your chipboard cogs and cardstock cogs  down the page in a diagonal direction allowing the cogs embedded in the texture paste to also be seen.  Mount some up on foam dots and allow some to adhere flat to the cardstock.
·        Adhere your matted photograph using foam dots.
·        Adhere your two chipboard scooter characters – I have placed the boy to the left side of the photograph and the girl to the bottom right of the layout.
·        Journal around the outer edge of the white cardstock.
