November '16 Challenge - Mid Month Reminder

Servus and welcome back to the promised second bundle of inspiration created for you by the fab ladies from Team B!

Our November challenge is once more an

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

and we want to see it all - cards, tags, canvases, mixed media mayhem, industrial eye candy, steampunk drawings, ATCs, altered objects,.....as long as they have at least a hint of steampunk or industrial on them. We want you to have fun and be daring - so don't be shy and play along!
You could make our Top5 or maybe win one of our two prizes given away by our generous sponsors DecoArt media and boozybear!

And now on to the promised Team B projects!

simply focused on the word in this canvas, an idea she had a long time ago, but
procrastinated until now to get it made.

created "Sea  Fantasies" - a mixed media 3D frame,
 where she obviously had great fun to play with a lot of metal embellishments
alongside some yummy embossing and rust effects with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics.

used lots of DecoArt media paints, pastes and texture products on this piece
alongside the beautiful boozybear "Mechanical World Cluster" chipboard set.



created a trio of ATCs, 
using scraps of an old protective paper sheet with tons of DecoArt media paints on it
for the background. 


I hope your imagination has been fuelled well! If you want to learn more about the projects, please, visit the teamies' blogs to find infos on the how-tos or media used and maybe also take a second to leaven them a short comment to let them know you were there! You get to their blogs by clicking on their names. 

Our November challenge is open until the end of the month as usual. If you haven't checked out the makes of Team A, simply click on the "actual challenge" badge on top of our side bar to get there. 
We hope to see you play along with us soon!

Hugs and happy steampunk crafting!

SanDee&amelie's November 2016 Challenge

Hi, servus and welcome back to another of our

"Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial"

mixed media challenges! We're happy that you stop by our little creative corner in steampunk craftin' blogland and hope you will join in!

As usual Team A kick off the November challenge with a bundle of inspirational steampunk projects - so here we go (and of course it is always a good idea to visit the teamies' blogs for more images and details - just click on the names to get there. And if you make them happy by leaving a short comment as well that would be so lovely!) :

created this fantastic A5 size accordion book from watercolour paper

layered a paper tag onto a larger cardboard tag and used various
images, die cuts, an altered bottlecap and flowers in a pipe (how genius is that!?)
to create a "steampunk tag flower vase". ;)

is sharing her latest treasure with us: 
a vintage dial phone from a forgotten drawer,
given to her by the IT department. 
Of course she had to turn this gift into treasure! 

has made herself a most beautiful little notebook with a stylus in it 
so she can carry it with her on her travels. 


went all "metallic mechanical" on a canvas and is trying to lure you over to her blog
with this close up  ;)


And if these fab projects didn't do the job with luring you into playing along with us, maybe the prizes from our sponsors will do:

who are giving away this bundle of media goodness


who is giving away a surprise package of awesome steampunk chipboard pieces.

Each prize will be given to one randomly drawn player - so don't miss the chance to get yourself some new stuff to play with! The challenge is - as always - open until the end of the month. Check out our few rules if you haven't done so already - it would be a shame if we had to exclude anyone from the draws. 

Prize winners and Top 5 from our October challenge will be announded on 12th November - so make sure you check back. And then there will be the makes of Team B on the 15th - so come back for more inspiration by then! In the meantime:

hugs and happy crafting!
