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!

Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!

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).

SASPC October 2017 Challenge - Part One

Servus, hi and welcome to part one of our monthly steampunk and industrial style challenge! Time to kick off the first round of inspirational projects created by my wonderful design team and lure you into creating another steampunk and/or industrial style project so you can play along!
This month's challenge is once more an

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

themed one - so feel free to create whatever makes you happy as long as it has at least a hint of steampunk and/or industrial feel to it!

Last month's entries were - once again - just amazing and the team and I will - once again - have a hard time picking our favourites for our Top5...and I am sure - as always - there will be a lot of close follower ups. You all rock our challenges so amazingly each time and I am so proud and happy that you share your fab makes with me and the team and our blog readers and players so constantly! Thank you all so much for being part of this! It all started out as a spontaneous (and crazy...at least it seemed crazy back then) idea of my friend Sandra back then....and look what has become of it! I am a very proud and happy challenge blog owner - and that mainly because of the wonderful help of my design team, you - our true players - and of course our generous and wonderful prize sponsors DecoArt media and boozybear chipboards!

By the way....we have just started a special "boozybear feature" to showcase Glenda's amazing chipboard designs in more detail and also show how the same chippies can be used differently in projects. So watch out during the next weeks...there's more to come. The first boozybear special can be visited by clicking HERE.  The next boozybear post will go live in a week or so.
Glenda - boozybear designer and owner - is giving away a surprise steampunk chipboard package to one randomly drawn winner each month and it could for example look like this...

And there's our second prize for another randomly drawn winner each month - this fab bundle of DecoArt media goodies:

All you have to do to win is play along and enter a project! (and of course follow the few challenge rules we have).
A propos...the prize winners and Top5 from our September challenge will be announced next Saturday, 7th October (alongside with our second boozybear feature)!

But now on to the makes of my wonderful ladies from Team A! Tadaaahhh!....

You see - all kinds of projects are welcome - as long as they are handmade. Show us your tags, layouts, cards, altered objects, mixed media canvases and other creative ideas! We can't wait to see what you will come up with next! 

The challenge is as always open until the end of the month. On 15th October there will be another round of inspiration with the makes of Team B. So make sure to come back then and check them out! You can also visit the teamies' blogs to find out more about the projects and products used on them. And if you take the time to leave them a short comment you will make them very happy. Thank you! 

Hugs and happy crafting!
Claudia & the SASPC Team
