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?

"Eyes Tested!" - the May Challenge

Servus and welcome back to our little creative Steampunk corner!

It's time to start a new challenge and this month we want you to incorporate anything that can be connected to "eyes" with your steampunk projects as our theme is 

"Eyes Tested!"

Goggles, eye charts, dolls eyes, stamped, painted or drawn eyes, monocles....you can create whatever makes you happy - a tag, an art journal page, a card, a mixed media canvas, some piece of altered art or altered art jewelry,....well, and anything else I just couldn't think about right now...lol. 

And you don't need to show us the "pure steampunk only" attitude to get eligible for our Top3 or the prize draw - if you are for example new to steampunk or simply just don't want to have your project be too industrial looking, a hint of steampunk will do too. But your entry definitely has to be visibly "steampunk-ish" to make it count.

A heartfelt thank you to our brave players who joined in our April challenge! Obviously the theme was too complicated (or simply the wrong theme at the wrong time)...so we already would like to call each of them a winner - simply because they rocked this challenge and showed us some awesome curtain-pieces. We will announce our top votes and the prize winner next Saturday! So make sure you check back then.

But now on to round 1 for your inspirations bundle of DT projects:

Canvas with rusty powder, eyes chart stencil 
an image and just some charms.....

I've been waiting to transform my plain black plastic goggles into something totally steampunk. "Eyes Tested" is the perfect theme to work on my goggles.My husband asked me what I was going to do with them, and I said, wear them, of course! Somehow, I got the idea, he did not want to be on that adventure with me!

Visit my blog for the tutorial adventure.
Now, to the skies and beyond!


If your eyes want to test my journalspread, you are welcome to visit my blog

This quote from Jim Carrey stole my heart,
so I decided to hold on to it via my art journal. :)
You can see more photos on my blog.

I had immediately an idea what I wanted to create when I heard about this amazing Theme "Eyes Tested" but then in the end I was struggling with the realization. I hope you like the outcome. And the Title of this Project is "open your Eyes and you can see what Art can do" More details and step by step can be found on my Blog.


I found beautiful red metal welding goggles so I altered them, but without changing colour. I sewed their edges and band with leces. I ornamented them with metal clockworks, brads, screws, zipper and filigrans.
More photos you will find on my blog.


Please make sure you visit the blogs of my wonderful teamies for some closer looks and also leave them a comment so they know their efforts got noticed. I am sure you will make them very happy by doing so. ;)

Our challenge is as usual open until the end of the month. We won't offer separate collections for 2D and 3D makes anymore, but will vote our Top 5 from now on. So entering the challenge will be a lot easier for you. 

We hope to see you play along with us soon!
Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC-Team
