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?

We are looking forward to seeing your fab projects entered to one of our challenges soon!

Steampunk Destinations - the November Challenge

Don't we all love to travel! Going to new places, learning about foreign culture, enjoying foreign cuisine, visiting wonderful sights all around the globe...is so exciting, isn't it!

There are a lot of destinations around our globe worth visiting. Think about capitals like Paris, New York, London, Venice, Vienna, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Kairo,....to name just a fraction. But also nature highlights or exceptional historic buildings can be destinations worth visiting....like the Niagara Falls, the Chalk Cliffs of Ruegen, Mount Everest, the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, Miss Liberty, and...and...and...

So whatever you associate with "Destinations" - it is what we want to see (steampunked of course) with your projects for our November Challenge:

Steampunk Destinations


here we come!

Before I show you the fab creations from Team A, let give you a quick reminder about the winners post which will go online next Saturday. So make sure you check back to find out if you made it to the Top 3 or won the prize sponsored by Tando Creative!

But now let's move on to our next destination - "DT Inspiration":
(if you want to travel to the blog of a DT member to have a closer look, just click the name or the image. By clicking on the images you also get a larger view)


For November I'll go to... Paris, with a book. Not an e-book but un u-book. The background is cardboard, the hinge is fabric. Paint, images, charms, dies, stamp..... and of course Eiffel Tower !

All pages with details  are on my blog



I think Paris is a great destination. See more on my blog

If you gave me a time machine, I'd travel to Victorian London. 
You don't have one? Blimey. Well, I guess I'll just make myself a tag, then. ;)


Hach!*) I am ever so proud of my fabulous team!

The challenge will be open until the end of the month. On the 15th of each month we provide you with more inspiration from team B and reveal the prize sponsor for this month's challenge too. So don't forget to come back then to find out.

As usual we offer two separate collections for your 2D and 3D creations. 

Have a lot of Steampunk creating fun! We are always blown away by all the artistry and imagination of the projects you enter. You all make our Steampunk Corner such a special place. Thank you so much! ...so we eagerly (and impatiently) wait to see your new projects for our challenge! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC-Team!
