October '16 Challenge - Mid-Month-Reminder

Servus and welcome (back), dear steampunk mixed media lovers and friends!

Team B have prepared another bundle of awesome inspirational projects to lure you in on playing along! And if you haven't checked out the makes of team A yet, I highly recommend you do so after reading this post and get the full dose of mixed media steampunk goodness! (just click on the badge on top of our side bar to get to the according post).

Our two generous sponsors DecoArt media and boozybear steampunk chipboard pieces are again giving away prize packages  to two lucky winners who will be picked among all proper entries - so don't miss the chance!
The challenge is still open until the end of October - so you still have two more weeks to enter a project (or maybe even the allowed three).

The theme is as always "Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial" and if you want to add a little Halloween-ish twist to it that is more than welcome! ;)

And here we go:

As Halloween is a couple of weeks away she just couldn't resist making 
a SteamPunkin.

topped with a couple of ghosts

decided to create a home decor project
with lots of dimension and texture

"The Face of Time"

has done her magic and created a large tag for you today

and of course she used lots of DecoArt paints, pastes and potions
on it. 

(that's me)

I am revisiting one of my favourite TV series with my son at the mo
and we are not only having fun but it also inspired this project. I am sure some of you will recognise what it is that I have made ;)

Claudia (when getting her own Farnsworth): "Does this mean I'm an agent now?"
Artie: "No, it means I can reach you anytime of day or night."
Claudia: "Okay, not so good."

Lovers of Warehouse 13, where are you???!!!


As you might already have noticed, Niki's make is missing. She has decided to explore new creative paths and is taking a steampunk time out for now and I fully understand and encouraged her to do so - even though I loved having her on our team and will miss her! But I know pretty well that we all reach a point at times when we feel that we need to try and explore new paths - and then we should listen to that inner voice and just follow.  Good luck and have lots of fun and joyful creative moments, Niki! We can't wait to see where your new creative adventures will be taking you!
Hugs and wishes! xxx

Hugs and happy crafting!
