Mid Month Reminder for our February Callenge

Hiya! I hope you are all doing well and having a good time at and off your crafting desks!

It is time to present the projects by team B today and I hope you will find them as inspirational and beautiful as I do!

If you haven't entered our actual challenge yet, I highly recommend you do so as we have two fantastic prizes to give away to two randomly drawn winners among all the proper entries! One is an awesome pack of beautiful steampunk chipbpoard pieces sponsored by lovely Glenda from boozybear AND the other a great bundle of DecoArt Media goodness as shown with the image below. To visit our generous sponsors' online shops, please click the according images on our sidebar!

So don't hesitate - create!!!! ;)

Our challenge themes are all 

"Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial" 

from now on - so there is enough room for your imagination and for enjoying some steampunk fun. 

The projects from the design team will surely help spark some great project ideas if needed! And here they come:

Altered Industrial Bottle. I have been determined to improve on altering bottles and am happy I now know the "secret" to getting paint to stick. Through trial and error comes success. DecoArt media paints, rusting powder and stamps made this bottle come to life. Carpe Diem!

one of my favourite songs on an art journal spread in industrial steampunk style
'Human heart'  -you are free like a bird-
a mix of texture, spray paints, gesso and distress inks 

This was inspired by Butterfly and a piece she did gave me
the inspiration for this piece it was created with deco art
media products and various stamps.

I had a joyful play on a journaling card using some die cuts, ephemera, stencils and rubber stamping! Adding washes, sprinkling on paint and doodling with my white gel pen was very relaxing to do.
