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).

SanDee&amelie's January 2020 Steampunk Challenge

Yay! Happy New Year to you, dear steampunk and industrial style challenge friends! We're so happy to be back for another year filled with loads of steampunk inspiration shared via our challenges! Our challenge blog is just entering its 8th year! Wow! This is almost unbelievable, isn't it?! Who would have thought we would make it this long and this far??!!

But here we are - and we are because of you - our imaginative, utterly creative and true players and our two wonderful, generous prize sponsors DecoArt and boozybear! Without you and your support there would be no such story to tell - and I just want to take this opportunity to let you know how much this means to the team and myself! Thank you all so so much! You rock! XXX

After our two months long winter special challenge (whose Top5 and prize winners will be announced on the 15th) we are back to our usual one month long challenge and three entries per player. For additional rules (there aren't many but these few need to be followed to allow for fair prize drawings and playing conditions), please, check the "Da Rules" tab on top of the blog page (right below the header) if you haven't done so already.

This month's challenge theme is once more

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

so you are free to let your imagination run wild and create in whatever technique or medium you feel most at ease with.

The InLinkz collection at the bottom of this post allows you to enter your projects. All you need to do is follow the instructions that lead you through the process once you've pressed the blue button to enter your make. You can enter makes via facebook, your blogs and Instagram as well! By the way....we have an Instagram account too that you can follow if you like. You can find it HERE. And these were the nine most liked #steampunkchallenges shares on Instagram from 2019...

...and you can also follow our activities via our facebook "SASPC Open Studio" group which can be found HERE.

To give you a little dose of steampunk inspiration let's check out the design team's makes!

has titled her beautiful tag
"Coming into the 20s"

Look at the rusty tones, the amazing backgrounds and that wonderfully wire-y dragonfly!!!
I love all of it! And the quote too! 

created a wooden sign in the shape of an arrow 
that shows the way to a new creative year in what she calls
"the Magic Laboratory, where you can find all the important ingredients for new projects:
ideas, heart, hope and bravery"!

is letting her imagination run free for the new year.
Imagine the Collision of Steampunk and a Futuristic Universe!

"Out of This World"
is the title of her awesomely textural project

greets the new year with her
"New Years Star"
that was inspired by concrete industrial walls with damask stencil accents

The smaller star with the lights was subtly painted to look like concrete too. 

and I

am kicking off another year of steampunk creativity 
with a charming little collaged mixed media ATC
titled "King Frédéric". 


For more information on projects, please, click on the teams's names to get taken to their blogs. And if you have a second or two, please, use it to leave them a little love so they know their efforts are being appreciated! Thank you! xxx

Also remember to come back on the 15th to find out if you are one of our Top5 or winners of this fantastic DecoArt premium paints and media bundle

or a surprise package of beautiful steampunk chipboard pieces sold and designed by boozybear!

We can't wait to see what you will come up with!!!! In the meantime as always...

...hugs and happy steampunk crafting!
