A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

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!

April 2017 Challenge - Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

Servus, hi and welcome to the start of our April challenge that is an

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

themed one again. So you are invited to let your imagination run wild and create whatever you are up to and have fun with - as long as it is something steampunk-ish or industrial and handmade.

Our March challenge had over fourty fab entries and we will announce our Top 5 and prize winners next Saturday, on 8th April.

The actual challenge is - as always - open until the end of the month and we will randomly draw two prize winners of the DecoArt media and boozybear prize bundles from all proper entries. You can enter up to three projects - so why not multiply your winning chances on winning this bundle of DecoArt media goodies or a surprise mix of fab steampunk chipboard pieces!



In the meantime we provide you with the first dose of steampunk inspiration to get your mojo going and my fab DT ladies have once more come up with the most creative projects - so take a close look (and maybe even visit their blogs - by clicking on the names - to learn more about them and also leave them a short comment. You will make them very happy by doing so!)!

Team A

made this fab industrial panel 
with yummy rust and crackle textures:

created the most amazing desk organizer to store her crafting tools in. 
She altered some cans and placed them on a rotating plate.
Isn't that just genius?


created some piping "for full steam ahead"
on her amazing tag:


did some wonderful art journaling
and created a faux rust effect


made this wonderful "stand up tag"
on which she used acrylic paints, a stencil, images, die cuts, tiny bottles, metal pieces, a button and a light bulb

and this is the backside


That really should have helped with getting you on steampunk track ;)
We can't wait to see what you will come up with!

Make sure to check back next Saturday to find out about the Top 5 and prize winners and also on the 15th, when Team B will be sharing their makes for more inspiration!

In the meantime...

Hugs and happy crafting!
Claudia & the SASPC Team
