Please, note, that this challenge blog is not related to any business and run without any profit by people, who do this for your and their own leisure time fun! Our only reward are your encouraging comments and your playing along and sharing steampunk fun and mixed media techniques. We appreciate every single entry and comment so much! Thank you for taking the time!

If you are new to this place, please, know that we are so glad that you stopped by our little steampunk corner!
Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!
For more information about the rules and the little "steampunk/industrial twist" we ask of you, please check the "about" stuff and then simply jump in and create!

If you are new to steampunk and not sure if this is "your thing", maybe take a look at our winners gallery on pinterest (use the linking button on our side bar). You will find that we're mainly a mixed media challenge blog with a little twist towards steampunk, industrial and/or vintage. So why not give it a try?

The February Challenge - "Time Machine"

Welcome to another edition of SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges, dear Steampunk friends and crafters!

This month our theme is

Time Machine 

and it is totally up to you how you interpret the theme and if you make a tag, a card, an art journal page, a drawing/painting or a crafted or altered 3D project for our challenge. The main focus should be on having fun creating :)

Whatever comes to your mind is good as long as it is Steampunk and fits the theme and our challenge rules!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful entries for our "Use Your New Stash" challenge! The team will have a hard time choosing their Top3 and we will announce them shortly after nex Saturday (due to school holidays over here and us being off for some skiing), so, please, check back next week to see if you are among our Top3 or the randomly drawn prize winner of the Tando Creative prize.

But now on to our Guest Designer for this month.

We are happy to introduce to you 

from  art bee art

Mein Name ist Sabine und ich lebe in einer kleinen Stadt in Deutschland mit meinem Mann. Ich bin Mutter einer Tochter und eines Sohnes.

Ich liebte es seit meiner Kindheit, zu zeichnen, zu malen und zu basteln, und mit verschiedenen Materialien zu experimentieren. Ich hatte einen sehr langweiligen Bürojob, also machte ich kleine Kunstwerke in meiner freien Zeit. Malerei und Kartenherstellung sind jetzt meine Favoriten. Ich mache aber auch gerne Schmuck , und trage ihn auch sehr gerne.

Ich habe schon viele kreative Techniken ausprobiert, z.B. Töpfern, Fimo und vieles Andere mehr. Meine Zeitmaschine für diese challenge wurde aus Fimo gemacht.

My name is Sabine and I live in a small town in Germany with my husband. I am mother of a daughter and of a son.
I loved to draw, paint and craft,  using different materials ,since my childhood . I had a very boring office job, so I made little artworks in my free time. Painting  and card making  are my favourites now. I also like to make jewelry, and I like to wear jewelry.

I have tried many creative techniques, such as pottery, polymer clay and many other more.

My work for this challenge, the time machine, is made with polymer clay.


Awesome, isn't it? Thank you so much, Sabine, for being with us and sharing some of your lovely art with us!
And if this isn't enough to get your mojo going there are of course the makes from the DT:

worked her magic again by altering a book.

I had an intense play with some die cut cogs and gears. ;)

To see and learn more about details or how tos hop over to the blogs of the DT members - they really put a lot of love and effort in their makes to inspire you. 

Our challenge is - as always - open until the end of the month. Please, check the callenge rules on top of our blog page so you make sure your entry can be counted in. Oh, and see to it that you enter your make to the correct collection as we divide into 2D and 3D makes (which we choose separate Top3 from too). 

This month's sponsor and prize will be announced around mid-month. So come back then to check it out. We look forward to seeing your Time Machines entered soon!

Hugs and happy crafting, 
B, S & A

  9. Hi, I can't seem to link my Facebook entry properly to the Linkz. I have an image up but no description. If you are interested go to my Public Facebook Page - Carol From Kiwiland or follow the link below and look at the last three photos:
    Sorry that its not a simple search - I just can't get it to load.
    Fantastic entries by everyone.
    Cheers Carol

    1. Dear Carol,
      I visited your facebook page and loved what I saw. What a lovely idea for a Time Machine project for our challenge!
      I hope you will understand that the SASPC Design Team won't comment on any sites where it is necessary to be a member or to sign in to be able to comment. There IS in fact the possibility to upload an image to the inlinkz collection directly from your computer. We couldn't leave any comments there either, but at least I know this way of linking will work and you would be on the collection then and get eligible for a prize draw or Top3 vote.

      I hope you understand that we cannot support this kind of entering our challenges. But I would love to have you play with us again as your makes are highly imaginative and inspiring!

    2. Thanks for entering with direct upload, Carol!
      I am happy to count your wonderful entry in! Loved the read of your journal page very much!

      Claudia x
