Stuck?! Sketches October 15th challenge - DT share

I am back again with the second sketch challenge for Stuck?! Sketches for October, here is the sketch:
This sketch threw me a little, as I don't generally have 4 photos of one theme that are suitable for scrapping. However, I looked through my photo stash and found these photos of a tourist train that runs from Walhalla in Gippsland, Victoria. The photos were perfect for this sketch. 
On my layout background, I added some gesso to break up the red patterned paper a little. I also added a bit of stamping. I chose some 7 gypsies ephemera relating to travel, one piece even has the word railway on it. I added some gears and round wood veneer, to replicate the wheels and functioning of a train. I found a train paper clip in my stash, so this went on, and the layout was finished with the addition of a Charms Creations arrow. I also included the tickets from our train ride. 
Enjoy the sketch.
