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).

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenge - April 2016

Servus, hi and welcome back to the start of another steampunk/industrial mixed media challenge!

But before we plunge in medias res we want to say a huge thank you to all our true and also new players for playing along and sharing their awesome steampunk or industrial mixed media art with us each month! We are always amazed by all the fantastic entries and by the loads of love and labour that obviously went into all the projects entered to our challenges! This is what we hope and what we work for and seeing it come true is our greatest reward!

Therefore also voting our top 5 really never is easy and the team and I try to do it with as much care and thought as possible. If you want to know which entries from our March challenge will make it to the top or who will be our prize winners check back on Saturday, 9th April!

But now on to our new challenge which - like all challenges in 2016 - is an

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial 

one again.

And Team A once more rocked this one out of the park! But see for yourselves (and don't forget to, please, visit the teamies' blogs and leave them a short "like it" or "thanks for the inspiration" comment to let them know you were there. You get to the blogs by clicking their names. To enlarge images simply click those).

mini book (6 cm x 10 cm)
very simple
background with gelli plate folded,
some stencils, masking tape, image, embellishments...
et voilà

I recycled a box to lock in the famous magician Houdini!
J' ai recyclée une boite  pour y en fermer "Le Magicien Houdini "

During spring cleaning I found some items I used for this MouseTime!

Who wouldn't want to climb stairs with gears on them? ;)
A simple crackled motivational tag.

I made a motivational tag on desk. About spring new hope and goals when days are longer.


Again there will be two prize bundles - donated by our two fantastic and generous sponsors


- to be given away to two randomly drawn players. But as we have to be fair we can only give them away to those who have entered properly, please, make sure you have checked our few rules so disappointment for all sides can be avoided. 

As usual the link up is open until the end of the month so there is enough time to get inspired and roll some ideas in your head before you get started. ;) And should you need another dose of inspiration make sure to come back on April 15th, when team B will present their makes! (well...even if you don't need any additional inspiration it will be worth another visit. I promise! lol). We hope to see you play along with us soon! 

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia & the SASPC team
