Steam Punk Inspired Layout
Hello Ruby Rock-It fans, welcome to my blog post.   For those who know me,  they'll know how much I love Steam Punk and therefore the new Bella Steamworks Mini Theme Collection is right up my alley.  It is so industrial and fanciful I just love the look of each page.

Take the white card stock and then take the Bella Mini Theme Steamworks Invention sheet and cut 1 cm off each side of the Bella Mini Theme Steamworks Invention sheet 
Now take the Paperworld French Country Worktop page and tear to the size you would like   
Next take the Steamworks Clockwork and cut from it which cogs and mandalas you like  
You can see from the below image how I have started thinking about the placement of everything on the paper
Now to mount your photo I have used the back of the Steamworks Odds & Ends taking care not to cut up or use the card that says "Success Lies in the Journey not the the destination" as I have used this to create the heading. Additionally, the image of the flying man is my embellishment. I have used different thicknesses of foam mounting tape to achieve some height and depth for the cogs, BUT don't stick them until the final step of your layout. 
The below images shows the piece I have cut down.     
You will use it this side up, as the image shows. I have then used the left over Steamworks Clockwork and cut a mat slightly larger than the Steamworks Odds & Ends 
You will now need to ink all edges of the card stock and paper with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. You will need to layer your photo mat papers and your photo as seen below.

You will see from the below image to give the paper a rusted look i have lightly inked it all over with the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink 

I have then started playing with my photo placement and cog placement.  See image below.

I have kept playing with the placement of my cogs and photo and have even added a new mandala cut in half to make the flow of the layout better.

I have then taken the card that says "Success Lies in the Journey not the the destination" and cut the 3 title lines out as seen in the above image and placed them onto my Layout on the right hand side of my photo and I have roughly cut the flying man out and inked all the edges and placed him also onto the Layout as you will see below.
I have also then taken some the amazing new Metallic Bling in Silver and Gold and added to my layout just to give it some bling.  
Your layout is now finished.
 I hope you have enjoyed my blog post and found it inspiring. Kim
