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!

Part Two of SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Summer Special 2016

Hi, dear steampunk friends, and welcome back to part two of our summer special challenge!

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 we welcome any sorts of handcrafted goodness, as long as it follows the theme and our few challenge rules! So maybe - on a rainy day - check out the makes of Team B, Team A (by clicking HERE) and also our Top 5 (which can be found on our pinterest board HERE), get yourself a good dose of steampunk mojo and create away (and don't forget to enter your finished project to our inlinkz collection at the bottom of our post!).

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!
