Sketch Along Tuesday Reveal for April 19th

Its Sketch along Tuesdays at Frosted Designs again today.. Wooo Hoo!!.. We have an original sketch by Debbie Burns.. I loved it !! 
I've been dying to make a masculine layout for the longest time now and when my son Adam handed me his school pics, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.. 
I created some gears a few weeks back and this was the perfect opportunity to use them along with some chains, screw head brads and other metal embellishments I found in my stash.. I love the way this layout turned out..
I also found some Graphic45 papers in my stash and thought those would be perfect for this layout..
 Here is the sketch:

best part of these sketch's is that you really can make it your own.. feel inspired to create your own masterpiece.  :)

and for some close ups:

and for supplies used:

Papers by : Graphic45
Cricut: Gears(SCAL) even though you can create you own with you DS, I tried and it will works great..
Corrugated cardboard
paints: black and red
Tim Holtz crackle paint (white)
Tim Holtz distress inks: Vintage photo
black ink by: Stazon
Tim Holtz stamp: film Strip
Metal Arrows: 7Gypsies
Screwhead Brads: product manufacture un-known
Key: K&Co
Safety Pin: Tim Holtz
Chain: Tim Holtz
Little Car Charm: Horizon
Black Burlap: craft store find

I think that does it for the list of supplies.. While making this layout, I realized I need to find me some more metal embellishments.. These were so much fun to work with and it really took me out of my comfort zone..Which was such a nice change..
Well ladies, I certainly hope you like what I've created.. My 16 yr old son was happy when I showed it to him.. I got a positive "a-huh!"..LOL

Hope everyone has a great and Creative rest of the week..
