"Unfinished Steampunk Challenge" - Mid Month Reminder

Hi and servus and welcome back to team B's inspirations bundle of Steampunk goodness for our February challenge!

It is 

we want to see you enter and the theme may actually sound trickier than it really is. We really challenge you to be daring and leave an unfinished looking space with your creations that works as a contrast or as part of your project's concept (or story).That's something totally different than just stopping in the middle or after you have done three thirds of your project....and it will also look totally different....lol.

Team A has already shown three fabulous and different approaches to this month's challenge theme (over HERE) and with today's part 2 there should be more than enough "nourishment" to artistically feed on.

But before I show you the creations of team B I want to invite you to check back on February 20th to find out who our new team members will be! We had the most wonderful applications from most incredibly talented folk and choosing was really(!) hard - but choose we must (as otherwise we would have ended up with more team members than players....lol) - and we did! And the team and I are so looking forward to introduce to you the fab new artists who will join us all in March and add their fantastic steampunk art to our community! Yay!

Enough written and said for now - here come the projects of team B! Make sure you also visit their personal blogs (you get there by clicking the names) and maybe even leave them a comment some time - so they know you have enjoyed their work and effort. For enlarged view click the images.


I loved this idea, but I really didn't know where to go with this at first....
I usually think of my work as 'unfinished' and I have a really hard time stopping myself from over-doing each creation - So how was I going to make this creation look like it is unfinished?......
Eventually I decided the only way was for me to leave part totally undone - leaving just a blueprint style of scribbled ideas, directions and colour prompts.

- Behind the mask -
It's carnival season
and I love this fantastic masks from Venice.  
On the left side you can see the unfinished version.

 I used a G45 designer paper which I partially glued onto a paint board that was covered with white Gesso. The upper left corner remained (almost) untreated. I left the torn edge to create a kind of peeled off look. This way you get an idea of what has happened on that piece of paintboard to make it look like the finished "rest".


 Our February challenge is open until the end of the month and you get to the inlinkz collections by clicking HERE (or clicking the badge on top of the side bar). There you will also find the makes of Team A if you haven't already seen those. 

The prize for the February challenge (that will go to one randomly drawn player)  is sponsored this time by


Retro Kraft Shop (which is owned by lovely Agnieszka, also known as Meresanth) offer the most fabulous range of products for creating vintage and steampunk art! So don't miss your chance to win a voucher for shopping! All you have to do is enter a project and play along! 

We are looking forward to see your lovely steampunk art entered soon!

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC-team
