Round and Round at Ruby's rainbow and Steampunk at Tuesday Taggers

The theme at Ruby's Rainbow is Round and Round.
This is a site where you can upload cards, layouts, tags , whatever.
Here is the link.

I've chosen a layout about a ride at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. It made my head spin watching the kids on the ride. Goodness knows what it did to them.
I've gone a little "mixed media" with this as I still have elements from the wonderful Finnabair day.

As many of them were round, I used them.
As you can see I've misted through a spotty prima mask, then using the same mask applied gesso in another area.
Then I've stamped using cogs from my favourite 7 gypsies "Steampunk" stamps.
After that dried, I began gluing metallic on to the page. Most of these are circular in shape eg the bottlecap, washer, flower, eyelets etc.
I've also added round epoxy dots and a chain with bronze brads,as well as my journaling circle.
Here's a close up
Next I've made a tag using similar elements for Tuesday Taggers
The theme there is "steampunk"
I started with a white tag and used distress ink in "old paper" colour as my background.
Then I stamped the same cog image from 7 gypsies.
I've glued metallic elements plus a wooden cog from Prima and some epoxy dots.
I inked around the edges of the tag in black and added a leather tie. Finally, I've added a little turquoise misting.
Here's the finished item
