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!

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Summer Special 2018!

Hi, servus and welcome to our annual Summer Special, dear steampunk and industrial style friends! Claudia here, to bring to you the usual two months long summer challenge for July and August, that is meant to provide our players and the design team sufficient time to create a little something to play along during the holidays and hot summer months when we all prefer to be outdoors and catch a  lot of summer sun and fun!

The challenge theme for our summer special is - as always -

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

so you're free to create what you enjoy most - as long as it has a steampunk or industrial style twist.

This year the whole team present their makes in this post. There will be some reminder post on the 1st of August and of course the Top5 and prize winners post from the June challenge on the 15th of the current month. But maybe you will want to make a little note to yourselves to play along....as we will give away our usual two prizes for the summer special challenge too. These are donated by our wonderful sponsors DecoArt and boozybear and we are so grateful for their generosity!

The two prizes will go to two winners who will be picked among all proper entries. So make sure you have checked our few challenge rules (see according page below our challenge blog header). We have added some updates recently due to entries via facebook accounts with strict privacy settings or blogs that only accept invited readers, which is a problem for us, as we cannot access your blogs or see the facebook or blog posts and therefore cannot see or comment on your projects... nor can we include these with our top5 votes or prize draws (which is a shame).  

The summer special challenge is open from July 1st to August 31st. We allow five entries per player instead of the usual three - so chances to get picked as a prize winner are higher than ever ;) 

My lovely design team ladies have once more created an amazing bundle of inspiration for you! Here we go! If you click on the design team's names, you get taken to their blogs where you can see the projects in more detail and also learn about techniques and products used. Please, take a few minutes to leave them a little love there! Thank you!
