Sandee and Amelie's May Steampunk Challenge

Hello and welcome friends, to our little corner of the Steampunk Universe! Maura here, wearing my co-host top hat.  We love having you here, playing along with us in a mixed media, steampunk and industrial style! The entire team is sharing their creative makes at the beginning of each month which will give you lots of inspiration to get started. 

 Our May challenge is, as usual...  

 Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

  We welcome all types of projects (except digitally created) and encourage everyone, from beginner to  experienced to join us every month and share your creations. Show us your tags, cards, canvas, art journal, altered objects...whatever you can imagine that fits our theme of steampunk/industrial. We truly are in awe of the imagination and creativity of you, our players, and look forward each challenge to see where your creative muse took you! 

 Many thanks to our wonderful and generous sponsors, 


 and boozybear 

for keeping the gears and cogs turning here at SASPC!

 At the end of each challenge, two winners are randomly selected from all proper entries (be sure to check out our posted rules) and will either get an awesome DecoArt Media prize package, or an amazing chipboard package.  Please make sure if you are posting from a  social media platform like Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest that your settings allow us to comment and see your work. 

 Now...on to the awesome makes from our wonderful team!

made a trio of tags featuring insects.
Hmm, would you rather see these critters at night, or during the day? I think they might take you by surprise at any time!

Instead of sharing her own project this month, 

is sharing some fabulously steampunked Easter Eggs that the lovely Kerstin sent her as a surprise...

along with this beautiful face with such delicate features and texture. What a wonderful surprise for Claudia!

created this wonderful tin man with his heart in a box, and gorgeously rusty gears on a tag. Is anyone else thinking of the Wizard of Oz right now?

does amazing things with cardboard, paint, die cuts and images turning them into an art square with an Artist Trading Coin!

has such a talented hand with black and white and shades of gray. 
Here is her acrylic pouring

with some gorgeous steampunk detail.


is looking to the past with her visions of what the steampunk world may have been like with a duo of Artist Trading Cards.

 Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the Steampunk Universe. We hope to see you playing along with us this month in our steampunk/industrial challenge which is open until the end of May. Remember, we will have two prize draws and choose the design team's Top 5! 

  Top 5 for April and prize winners will be posted on May 15th,  so be sure to pop back to check that out. 

 Time to put your top hat on and get crafting with us! 
Hugs, and happy crafting!
