A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

Please, note, that this challenge blog is not related to any business and run without any profit by people, who do this for your and their own leisure time fun! Our only reward are your encouraging comments and your playing along and sharing steampunk fun and mixed media techniques. We appreciate every single entry and comment so much! Thank you for taking the time!

If you are new to this place, please, know that we are so glad that you stopped by our little steampunk corner!
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). You will find that we're mainly a mixed media challenge blog with a little twist towards steampunk, industrial and/or vintage. So why not give it a try?

We are looking forward to seeing your fab projects entered to one of our challenges soon!

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Winter Special 2020

 Yay, hooray, drumroll and ta-dah! Let the team and me welcome you to our annual Winter Special Challenge!!!

Those who have been playing along with us for a while by now, already know that we do a two months long challenge in November and December each year - simply because that allows our players and the team to indulge in advent and Christmas crafting and preparations with (hopefully) still a little time to squeeze in one or the other steampunk or industrial themed project. 

The usual rules all apply (so, please, make sure you have checked these out) - with one little change: this once you are allowed to enter up to five projects instead of the usual three! Which means two more chances to win one of the two prize bundles being generously sponsored by DecoArt and boozybear chipboard. The two lucky winners will be drawn randomly among all proper entries and we will announce them on the 15th of the following month (in this case that means 15th January 2021) alongside our Top5. 

The challenge theme is also the usual one - 

Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

meaning that we definitely want to see some steampunk or industrial style elements without having to search for them with a magnifying glass - but we welcome all sorts of creativity. Do your thing and do what makes you happy - as long as it isn't digitally created and sticks to our challenge theme!

The team have come up with inspirational projects, too, of course. 


is sharing another of her beautiful desk organisers, done in her brilliantly unique and inspiring steampunk-sea life-mixed media style. 

Her project is called 

"Steampunk Under the Sea"


is re-visiting a project from 2016 that is still dear to her heart. She does so because of real life issues that have made it impossible for her to enjoy some creative time at her work desk. The team and I wish her and her family the very best! 

I am definitely happy to see her beautiful Christmas Angel canvas again! 

has come up with this mesmerising mixed media tag. 
I love how she combines media with found objects to tell
the most beautiful stories! 

And don't we all agree that art is the answer? 
I definitely do. ;)

is fully into stars this year - this time she 
created one in steampunk mixed media style
to decorate her home for Christmas with. 

Look at all the beautiful texture and layers! 
Magical indeed! 

and I 

- Claudia

have created my first Christmas home decor piece for this year
(which is definitely early for me ;)

There's a detailed how-to with all the products used listed on my blog. 
I hope to see you over there!

The challenge is open until 31st December and the Top5 and prize winners will be announced on 15th January 2021. The team and I would like to thank all our players for playing along with us so truly and  constantly this year and our wonderful prize sponsors boozybear and DecoArt for their generosity! 
I would also like to thank my wonderful team of course for all their fabulous work and support! 
You all rock! 

We wish you all safe holidays, a joyful advent season, 
merry Christmas and a happy new year!
