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 February 2020 Steampunk Challenge

Hello and welcome friends, to our little corner of the Steampunk Universe! 
Maura here this month, welcoming you aboard the Airship Imagination. 

 We love having you here, playing along with us in a mixed media, steampunk and industrial style! The team is sharing their creative makes which will give you lots of inspiration to get started on your own and join us.

 Our February 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! 

We have several places for you to share your work - the InLinkz at the bottom of this post, our Facebook group and Instagram page (links on the right)

Are you ready for some wonderful inspiration from the design team? 
Be sure to click on their name to go to their post with all the project details, and they love to hear from you!

 Many thanks to our wonderful and generous sponsors,

 for keeping the cogs and gears 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. 

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 February. 

Remember, we will have the prize draws and the design team's Top 5 for January posted on February 15th, so be sure to pop back to check that out. 

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