Sandee and Amelie's September 2019 Steampunk Challenge

Hello and welcome friends, to our little corner of the Steampunk Universe! 

Maura here, and all I can say is WOW!! 

What a fantastic turnout for our Summer Special Challenge! I can tell already, it's going to be super difficult for the design team to select our Top Five. Thanks so much to each and every one of you who entered our Summer challenge and  to those of you who stopped by to visit, we truly appreciate it. 

The design team shares their makes at the beginning of each month to jumpstart your creativity.

Our September 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 this very cool, and a bit spooky, altered box with lots of great dimensional elements!

Look how it slides up to reveal a hidden compartment filled with treasures. 

has turned her hand to a bit of sewing and fabric incorporated into her mixed media masterpiece!

up cycled some packaging materials and combined paints and prepared die cuts from her "holiday tool box" to create a mixed media panel (with improvised stand) that she titled
"The Inventor"

made a canvas board titled "The Dog on the Wall" using paint, stencil, die cut and image...
Looks like a lot of math going on here!

shares another textural masterpiece titled
"Another Path"
Look carefully and you can see the bicycle hanging from chains!


and I, Maura

"Rust Never Sleeps"
My muse works in mysterious ways...I was inspired to create my ATC's by a broken down washing machine with rusty pipes, an old truck with a rusted frame, and a song! I'm sharing the story behind that on my blog. 

Detail of one of Maura's "rusty pipes"

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 September. 

Remember, we will have two prize draws and choose the design team's Top 5, and post on September 15th, so be sure to pop back to check that out.

Time to put your top hat on, cinch up your corset, or tie on your spats, and get crafting with us!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Maura & the SASPC Team
