 Our Top 5 from the May Challenge (in no particular order) 

Cathy transforms a compact into this amazing steampunk piece. What a beautiful example of up cycling! If you haven't started collecting a stash of odds and ends, this will encourage you to do that. 

Look at this beautiful octopus Magda created to guard the steampunk treasure chest! Lovely patinas and textures here, and aren't you wondering what's inside that chest?

What an amazing little world inside the lightbulb! Katya has really packed it full of detail and texture. I'm sure there's a story in here!

A gorgeous masculine card with awesome texture and color. Look closely,  there is so much to discover here!

Loving the mix of awesome rust and gears with the black and white images and lots of fun touches on this wonderful creation! 

Thank you for sharing your amazing makes and wonderful inspiration with us!  Please feel free to grab the Top 5 badge from above (or the sidebar), and display it on your blog.  Congratulations!!

 MANY THANKS to everyone who entered our May challenge! It is always so difficult for the DT to pick the Top 5 from all of the awesome entries, because we truly are inspired by the creativity of each and every one of you. We are so happy to have all of you playing along with us at SASPC - you rock our little steampunk universe! 


 The June challenge is open until the end of the month, so you still have plenty of time to create and share with us. We would love to see you link up your makes and enter our challenge this month, so please join us in our steampunk/industrial mixed media challenge! 

Look for our special summer challenge coming in July!

 Keep the cogs and gears of creativity turning,
 Hugs and happy crafting!

Sandee and Amelie's JUNE 2019 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 shares their creative makes at the beginning of each month, which will give you lots of inspiration to get started.

 Our June 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.

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

created an awesome canvas with paint, stencils, die cut and lots of cogs. 
Let's get those cogs turning and see what happens! 

Read all about the adventures of Lily Featherduster 
and Captain Artemis Quill aboard the Flying Tophat

made an awesome book with funky sewing and wonderful vintage colors and textures. 
Don't you just want to unwrap this and look inside?

used a thick wood panel as her substrate to work on and created her version of 
an assimilated victim (obviously resistance has been futile)

She used the fabulous "eyepiece" chipboard set from boozybear and loads of DecoArt 
Metallic paints  and some of her favorite crackle media to create this highly textured piece.

A full tutorial with loads of steps and images can be found on her blog. 

...and a gorgeous mood board from Zoja, that will have all of us heading out into the night 
to see the moon and stars and dream of moonbeams.

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 June.

 Remember, we will have two prize draws and choose the design team's Top 5!  
Top 5 for May and prize winners will be posted on June 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!
