is our theme this time and I know pretty well that this is a tricky one. But this is a challenge blog, right? And actually there is no right or wrong anyway.... so I hope you will give it a try and create a tag, ATC, card, mixed media project, altered art project, art journal page,.....well, whatever comes to your mind (as long as it is steampunk-ed! ;)
I would like to encourage you to leave some areas/parts of your creations unfinished or have them look unfinished! It should definitely not just look as if you had forgotten to finish your project off with some spots, but the unfinished (but maybe already primed or half treated) part should build a dynamic contrast or in any other way an important part of your project's composition or concept.
I am pretty sure there are a lot more ways I haven't yet thought of to interpret this challenge - so be daring and surprise me (as you mostly always do with all the fab projects you enter ;) and maybe yourselves as well!
Due to me being on school holiday this week, the announcement of the prize winner and Top3 will be on Saturday, 14th - just one day before our mid-month inspiration bundle is about to hit the bloggosphere!
Aaaand there will of course be the announcement of our new team members shortly - so be sure to be on the look out for that! (I am sooo excited as we managed to get some fabulously talented ladies on the team! Yay!).
For february a tag .... with an unfinished part : the cog
it's a die cut with my machine

"I'm sitting here having trouble with finishing this BlueFish. My dear friend George has sent me some proposals, but they did not make it easier for me - I know, I have the right things in my stash - but I'm not sure what it is... and what I've found up until now doesn't satisfy ---"

How about a project which reveals all of its secrets? This album cover shows you how it was made step by step, left to right, top to bottom. :)
See close-ups on my blog.
Well, that should already show that there's pretty much room for interpretation of all kinds with this challenge theme! And I love the three different approaches shown by team A! They make me even more curious about what you - our players - will enter!
The challenge will be open until February 28th, midnight (Central European Time)! And as always we offer two separate collections - one for the 2D creations and one for your 3D makes. Hope to see you join in soon!
Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC team
