Gears, Watch Parts, and Three Year Olds - Oh My!

I've got three little boys in my house so when it comes to boy embellishments - I am always in need.  The Gears Set and Watch Parts Set are absolutely perfect for making those projects more masculine!  Tracey G. recently showed you these same gears in a Steampunk project - today we're gonna go a different direction and use them in a whimsical, playful manner!

My colors are masculine and my flat sickers are masculine but I needed that added dimension and texture that Leaky Shed Studio can provide!  For my project today I decided to focus in on my three year old son and some of his silly antics.  Can you see his future as a class clown?

Using some spray mist, I colored the gears black.

To bring in some color I added an enamel dot to the center of the gears.
