November Challenge for KIU

Hi to all,
EEK!!! It is getting so close to Christmas and I am in denial... I have not done a thing in preparation. I would rather scrap than head to the shops and do Battle!!!
So I decided to get a page done for the challenge over at Kraft It Up. This month the requirement was White Space!!!!! ARGHH!!! Those of you that know how I roll, this is the hardest thing for me to do. I never know when to call it quits! Just one more button.... one more chippie!! So I wanted to get myself out of my comfy zone.

This is what I came up with: (not too much white space really but for me that will have to suffice!)

My big 'Fella!!

I used a few newbies from Scrap FX, this months' theme was Steampunk and I think it is a winner. Love my Cogs And Gears!!! I also used a new stencil that has loads of bits and pieces that you can mask off and spray, not that you can see too much of it here but I did use it!!!
The frame is just too cool this I had to use as soon as I saw it!
Yes, the frame is divine, but check out the Micro Cogs they just add to my excitement!!!!
They are all just painted up with a little Mica paint and the "Remember" title is from a wordlet theme pack.

Made my own set of circle masks in varying sizes to do the background and sprayed away, then used a Black Molotow Marker to outline!
The journalling says:
"To accomplish great things, we need
to not only act, but also Dream,
not only plan, but also Believe."

The little dots that I seem to want to put everywhere are perfect pearls!
So thats about all from me, thanks so much for the visit and big hugs for those that take the time to leave some sugar!!!
