A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

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!

April Top3 and Prize Winner

Servus and welcome to today's announcement of the winners from our April challenge "Raise the Curtains!".

As the challenge theme obviously was a real challenge (or maybe just the wrong theme at the wrong time) we had the small number of seven lovely and highly appreciated entries from six players this time - so choosing our Top3 from both collections each might have looked a bit awkward... also some of the entries sadly didn't even have a hint of steampunk about them, so that narrowed possible Top entries down to four anyway.

And as these four makes were from three players, the Top3 this time somehow figured out automatically.

Which brings me to a slight change with collections and Top votes for our future challenges: as you might already have checked out with our actual challenge "Eyes Tested!" we only offer a single inlinkz collection from now on (as there often aren't enough 3D entries to choose our Top3 from) - AND we will vote our Top5 from all the entries instead.

And I feel the need to emphasize once more that we hope and would LOVE to see a lot more cards, tags, ATCs and other "quicker" projects entered into our challenges (and that we explicitly do not divide between those and the more elaborate ones when it comes to judging and choosing our favourites). I know that "simplicity" sometimes gets mistaken for "less skilled" or "less elaborate" - but I assure you that my team and I do not think like that. 

We do NOT want to have SASPC become a place where all have to aim for that "swifter, higher, stronger"-attitude to get recognised! Art and being creative is all about listening to your inner artistic voice (and trustingly following it) - and we all know that tone and volume of our voices change - due to our moods and actual situations. And it is that inner dialogue that makes us feel good and becomes visible when we create, isn't it? So we want you to share your "feel-good" creations with us as they are the ones that "shine" and "talk to us" in a way (independent from any special media being used or skills). I have been working as an arts teacher for almost twenty years (and have been taught about all of this by my wonderful pupils) and I still am an arts teacher from the heart - so I hope you will trust me. ;)

And now on to our Top 3 and the winner of the generous $25 voucher donated by Inspiration Emporium! Yay!


and the winner iiiiis........
