There were already so many fantastic entries and the team and I are very thankful and happy that you find the time to create and share a bit of steampunk goodness with us during your summer holidays! We can't wait to see what August brings!
Our summer challenge always is open for two months and this time we also accept five instead of just three entries per player. Aaaaand...there are also three prizes to give away instead of two as usual!
The fab little DecoArt Media steampunk starter pack and two boozybear steampunk chipboard surprise packs this time!
So don't miss the chance and join in our steampunk fun. The challenge theme is as always an
Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial
And if you want to make someone happy - visit the blogs of our DT (by clicking on their names) to find out more about their projects and the how-to and leave them a short comment. That would be fantastic and so lovely of you!
Here are their makes for your inspiration:
...is heading into unexplored worlds this summer
"I had a lot of fun with this one, between painting,
my antique rusty junk and a bit of storytelling !"
...takes you with her on a dive into the fascinating underwater steampunk world.
...created a clock for you, using DecoArt media
paints, antiquing creams and mediums.
Here is a close up of the triple embossed clock face.
"Loving the Brilliant work that you are submitting for
the challenges - lets see what you can do for
the summer special."
"I have altered a little notebook using DecoArt paints, black Gesso and modelling paste. stencils and - one of my alltime favourites - shrink foil! It's so much fun!"
Use your favourite steampunk rubber stamps and display them all at once - no matter what size they are! Shrink foil helps you to combine even larger images on a single project!
Use gilding pastes like paint with stencils to create words with fantastic metal sheen!
Niki is sending summer hugs and wishes to all of you! She is quite busy with real life at the moment, so she could not play along with us this time. But she will be back soon and we wish her all the best! Hugs to you and take care! xxx
So here it is - your bundle of inspiration for August! There will be some "Extra Steam Power" a little later this month - so stay tuned! We hope to see you play along with us soon!
Hags, happy summer and happy crafting!
