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!

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?

Our February Challenge - and Some Great News!

Hi, servus and welcome back to our constantly growing mixed media steampunk corner!

Time to start another

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

challenge and along with some wonderful inspirational makes from team A comes an announcement: we have another new prize sponsor who is joining us:

lovely Glenda from boozybear who produces and sells the most beautiful steampunk chipboard pieces on her Etsy store that I have ever seen! Welcome to our creative steampunk family, Glenda! We are so happy to have you with us!!!


Starting with the February challenge each month Glenda will be giving away one fantastic prize pack of assorted chipboard pieces to one winner who will be randomly drawn from all proper entries! So make sure you don't miss the chance to win!!!!

Of course if you want to be sure to get some of her steampunk chipboard goodness just hop over to Glenda's Etsy store and shop away. She ships worldwide and shipping costs are really affordable - and I am sure you will love her designs as much as I do!!!

Then we also have the fabulous prize pack sponsored by DecoArt Media

 to give away each month - gosh! I am the happiest and proudest challenge blog owner in whole crafty blogland right now. Yay! Thank you so much, boozybear and DecoArt Media!

To win one or the other all you have to do is play along and enter (up to three) projects to our monthly challenge. To make sure it is a proper entry, please check out our few rules if you haven't done so already or are new to our challenges. It would be a shame if we had to exclude you from the prize draws or top votes! The rules can be found with the pages section below our challenge blog header.

Our challenges will all be "anything goes - steampunk/industrial" ones from now on - so this enables you to let yourselves be struck by inspiration, follow your (steampunk) hearts and enjoy some happy steampunk craftin' time!


Team A have created some wonderful projects for your inspiration! To learn more about any how-tos and products used, please, visit their blogs (just click their names to get there) - and let them know you have been there by leaving a short comment! We all know how much we love a little recognition - no matter how short the comment - so please, take a few secs to make them happy!

Bonjour à toutes ,
voici ma façon d'interpréter par ce canvas,
la St Valentin

'Chemical fumes' art journal entry, aka playing around with
Media Fluid Acrylics and water. ;)

Steampunk Love...

A tag "The key of my heart"

Paint, patine, paper, charms, beads....
with DecoArts products.

I recycled old wall calendar to make album for my favourite, very old ( about 1890) victorian photos. I wanted it gold :) and it is almost.


 The prize winner and Top5 from the January challenge will be announced on Saturday, 13th February! Another bundle of inspirational projects awaits you on the 15th of each month - so make sure you don't miss it! 

Our challenges are open until the last day of the month, 23:55 pm CET. To enter your make, use the inlinkz collection at the bottom of this post. 

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia & the SASPC Team
