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?

Raise the Curtains! - the April Challenge

Servus and drumrolls, please, as we raise the curtains for our April challenge, which iiiiiis...

....Raise the Curtains!

This month we challenge you to create Steampunk projects in which curtains play the main role.

As usual our challenges are "anything goes" ones - as long as your projects show some Steampunk (or are at least vintage themed with a hint of Steampunk) and as long as they stick to the challenge theme (and the few challenge rules of course).

In this case your project can be anything that has to do with curtains (maybe being raised or pulled aside, revealing....well, whatever you can think of). I am sure you will once again surprise us all with your marvellous and imaginative projects!

So let's raise the curtains for the makes of Team A and fuel your mojo with some stunning creations:

I recycled an old candy container to create this shadowbox,
where a winged mannequin peeks from behind a chain curtain...
You can check out some close-ups on my blog.

This time I'll raise the curtains for a little steampunk in The Circus.
There are more details from my altered book on my blog Raise The Curtains

I used a cereal box for my shadow box, cut, glue, some masking tape and paint.
I used a paper mache mask, stamp on tissue paper, glue, distress ink, glossy
I used paper for the curtains and now...
...I have a frame
I added a tuto on my blog


"The Mesmerist"

Happy April Fools Day! 
For those of you who don't celebrate this day, it is a time to play jokes or hoaxes on others, 
and can be a lot of fun. So, imagine what could happen if the rabbit escaped from the hat, and took over the show! "Raise the Curtains" to enjoy the spectacle! 
Come over for a visit to get all the details.

After the Wedding from Mr. & Mrs. Cumberbatch this Picture went around the world and it really caught my attention. They look so deeply happy, and with this Mixed Media Project I do like to keep this moment frozen for ever and "raise the curtain on". By the way I did call this Project: ".... and they lived happily ever after!". Good Luck Sophie & Benedict ! :-) More Pictures can be found on my Blog.


Our challenge will be open until the end of the month and we offer two separate collections for either your 2D or the 3D makes, so make sure you enter your project to the according one. 
We hope to see you play with us soon! Make sure you check back on April 15th for the makes of team B (and to find out who will be our prize sponsor for this month) and also on April  11th to find out if you are among our Top3 or if you're the prize winner! 

We hope you will have loads of fun creating something for our challenge! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia & the SASPC team!
