This is the last time that we're presenting the team's makes in two parts. From next month on you will get the full dose of inspiration from the design team at the verystart of the monthly challenge on the 1st, which will be followed by the announcement of our Top5 and prize winners on the 15th. Next month's challenge will be hosted by lovely Maura, who has so willingly and lovingly jumped in to help me with running the challenge blog from now on! Those who already know Maura, know that you will be in good hands with her.
This month's challenge theme is - as always - an
Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial
and we only ask that you only enter Steampunk and Industrial themed makes to our challenges or our facebook group and follow our really few and simple rules when playing along so we can consider you for our top votes and prize draws! I have also added information on entering a facebook link to our challenge link up collection to the rules as the team and I have been repeatedly experiencing issues with not being able to see projects (and therefor also not being able to comment on them) because of facebook privacy settings. Sadly of course these makes can also not be included with the votes and prize draws (as we can simply not see them). So IF you want to play along and enter your make to the inlinkz collection from your facebook account, make sure we can see what you have entered without having to be friends on facebook! Thank you!
Let's start with prize winners this time.
As always DecoArt media and lovely Glenda from boozybear will give away a prize to our two monthly winners that I draw randomly from all proper entries.
And this fab bundle of DecoArt media goodness
Congrats on your prize wins, ladies, and thanks so much for playing along! Please, email me under the address given in the side bar so I can forward your shipping details to Glenda and DecoArt asap. DecoArt prize winners, please, also provide a phone number.
Next up the makes of Team B!
has created a special "Lady Light"
using boozybear chipboard wings, DecoArt products and loads of imagination!
made this fantastic trio of ATCs
that she calls
"Children of the Gear"
(love the title...and the ATCs, of course!)
on another of her beautiful altered bottles
amazes with fantastic texture
and once more a beautifully aged and worn look
I wonder what it was that scared the poor kraken so much...
have once more chosen to play on the small format of an ATC
(I am always amazed by how much media and effects can be used and shown on a project so small of size). The new DecoArt pouring medium has found its way onto my ATC as well as some of my old favourites like Metallic Lustre, Antiquing Creams and Crackle Paste.
By clicking on the teamies' names you get taken to their blogs to find out more about the projects (like products and techniques used or steps images so you can create your own interpretations). If you take a second to leave them a short comment you will make them very happy. Thank you so much!
And last but not least - our Top 5 from the April challenge!
(in no particular order)
with her lovely
Air Balloon Lamp
with this amazing tag
in her very unique style
and her awesome "Gorgoneion Assemblage" mirror
These are just amazing makes, ladies! Thank you so much for sharing them with us and for the fantastic inspiration! Please, feel free to grab the Top 5 badge from the top of this post (or the side bar) for display on your blogs!
A huge THANK YOU to all the other players too - we always love ALL the fantastic projects you enter to our challenges so constantly (and almost always there are so many who are really hot on the Top 5s' heels so we could easily do a Top 32 post if that made sense....)! It is EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU and your creativity who make this creative spot the special place it is! XXX
Hugs and happy crafting!
Claudia & the SASPC Team
