SASPC September 2017 Challenge - Round Two

Hi, servus and welcome to the second round of inspirational projects - created by Team B this time!
If you haven't taken a look at the makes of Team A and want to do so, simply read to the end of this post, where you will find a link to take you there.  If you haven't checked out who is among our Top5 or one of the prize winners from our summer special challenge, just do the same or scroll to the previous post. ;)

As always (or at least most of the time) the theme for this month's challenge is

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

and as always we would like to see any sort of handmade steampunk and/or industrial artsy fun. Be it a card, a tag, an ATC (or two), some altered art or canvas....whatever makes you happy is just fine!

So let's not waste more time and finally get in medias res - the makes of Team B!

Maybe you are in the mood for a small format - then 


beautiful set of ATCs might be the perfect source of inspiration for you: 

She used some of our sponsor boozybear's awesome chipboard pieces 
alongside some real watch parts to create her
"Illusion of Time"

had a play with paint pouring, paper clay and the odd DecoArt stencil, 
which led to this amazing tag:

had an old home decor piece at home - a ceramics hand - and she decided to alter it as she just loves the beautiful shape of it:

(the perfect home decor piece for the steampunk artist, isn't it?)

and I 

Claudia -

had an experimental tag play with a stamped and masked image, a sponge and DecoArt Students', media and Extreme Sheen paints to create a quick fun and messy tag. 

My heart runs on....

....steam, of course! ;) What else?


If you want to learn a bit more about how the projects were made or take a closer look, please, visit the blogs of Teams A and B - and if you take a sec to leave a short comment there you will make them very happy! Thank you!

  2. Your creations are just amazing!!! I love them all!!!

  3. I've entered, hope that will be on the news today! I've been working on it this week, and it took me some time to get the rust dry... I hope to enter more! Gorgeous inspiration from the DT... I am saving all sorts of objects, but I am scared it's only going to become worse after seeing that beautiful altered hand!!!
