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!

Top Hats and Moustaches! - the October Challenge

...starts today and we are so excited to (hopefully) have you play along with us again this month!

Team A are already eager to present their inspirational makes for October and will once more have a hard time voting their personal Top5 from the "Tag it!" September challenge. These - and our prize winner will be announced on Saturday, 10th October. So make sure you check back to find out if you are one of them!

"Top Hats and Moustaches"

are two of the "ingredients" we all love about Steampunk art! So show us your "moustached" canvasses, cards, tags, objects,....those top hats sitting on...well, whatever you think they can sit on. lol

Anyway - we hope you are not too busy with crafting away on Halloween projects only and maybe find some time for a little Steampunk piece too this month.  

As usual all media and techniques (except totally digitally created projects) are welcome - as long as they have a steampunk, vintage or industrial theme to them. The challenge will be open until the end of the month and on October 15th there will be a second round of inspiration for you (provided by the lovely ladies from Team B) and our prize sponsor for this month's challenge will be revealed as well!

But now on to the makes of Team A: 

Pocket letters, my new toy....
9 ATC, background inked with stencils,
dies, transfert, stamps...

This is my art-jourmanl page about bird which collects curious objects...He couldn't steel moustache, so he took a hat :)

Here is an attempt at a clean&simple steampunk style. 
It was quite a challenge for me, to keep things simple - not sure
I managed to keep them clean... ;) Had to remind myself to keep calm
throughout the making process. Check out some close-ups on my blog.


We hope to have you join in our top hats and moustache fun soon!

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia & the SASPC Team
