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 and Amelie's Steampunk Challenges: January/February 2021


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

Maura here, welcoming you to our first challenge of 2021.  We all wish you and your loved ones a new year of health and joy. May you find lots of creative fulfillment this year, and of course, we love having you with us, playing and sharing your amazing mixed media, steampunk and industrial style makes! 

We are going to be doing things a little differently for awhile, due to the ongoing pandemic around the world. We've decided to make our challenges for two months instead of one, and you may enter up to 5 times instead of the usual three. We know things are difficult for everyone (players, design team and sponsors) and this gives us all a bit more time to be creative without added pressure.  
Also, we do not know when DecoArt will be able to ship out again and what the prize bundle for 2021 will consist of, due to Corona restrictions that are impacting production.  We are working with DecoArt to come up with something pleasing to all of you, and hope things will improve by spring. 

The team and I also want to give a huge shout out and thank you to Kerstin for all of her fantastic mixed media projects she has shared with us over so many years. Her projects have been a wonderful treat with all their layers and textures and her eye for detail. We wish Kerstin the best in all her future endeavors, and look forward to some future visits!  

 Our January/February challenge is, as usual...  Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial 

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

is still forced to take a break from crafting or creating, so she is trying to inspire you with an older steampunk project that hasn't been shared on this challenge blog yet. I wonder if you turn the dials on this amazing notebook where or when you would end up?

has a wonderful vintage, rusty piece that hold the keys to life

inspires us to begin the year with hope in her lovely industrial style home decor piece

and I, Maura

have a story of polar exploration to share

 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! Remember, you can enter FIVE times!

 Many thanks to our wonderful and generous sponsors, DecoArt and boozybear for keeping the gears and cogs turning here at SASPC! 

At the end of this challenge, prize winners will as always be randomly selected from all proper entries (be sure to check out our posted rules) for an amazing chipboard package.  

We will also draw a prize winner for the DecoArt prize, but due to Corona pandemic restrictions we cannot yet tell what exactly and when it can be sent out - so, please, be patient and bear with us during these crazy times! You will get your prize - we promise! 

Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the Steampunk Universe. We hope to see you playing along with our steampunk/industrial challenge which is open until the end of February. Remember, we will have a prize draws and choose the design team's Top 5!  Top 5 for our Winter Special Challenge and prize winner will be posted on January 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!
 Maura & the SASPC Team
