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?

Sandee and Amelie's Steampunk Challenges: March/April 2021


Welcome friends to our Steampunk/Industrial Mixed Media Challenge! We have another two month challenge for you, and you can enter up to five times. We have decided to go with two month challenges for now, with the ongoing pandemic. Life is certainly different these days, and the extra time will help us all to meet these challenges. We appreciate each and every one of you who joins us!

If you have any questions about our challenge, be sure to check out the pages linked above that go into detail. 

Our March/April Steampunk/Industrial Challenge is: 

Now, on to the design team's awesome makes:

Has created this wonderful, layered and colorful piece with lots of rusty bits.

Is sharing a rusty, crusty butterfly catcher she made in an online class 

Detail inside...

once more came up with one of her beautiful assemblage pieces - no! It's two pieces even - in contrasting colours! Both - as always - beautifully layered and executed.

is once more sharing a project she has created earlier and for a different blog - but as it is a steampunk themed project she thought you might like to check it out... (there's a tuto to find in the original blog post - simply click here name to get there). 

Please go to our designers links and leave them some comment love, they would really appreciate it. 

We welcome all types of steampunk and industrial mixed media projects (except digital), so with the wonderful inspiration from the design team, now it is your turn to create a make and share it with us. We are looking forward to seeing where your creativity takes you! 

Many thanks to our wonderful sponsors for keeping the cogs and gears turning here at SASPC - DecoArt and Boozybear Chipboard! 

At the end of each challenge, we draw two prize winners at random, along with our Top 5. Please be patient, as both of our sponsors are running into shipping delays, and DecoArt has production delays due to the pandemic. We promise your prize will come, it will just take longer than usual.

Thanks so much for stopping by our corner of the Steampunk Universe! We look forward to you playing along with our challenge. Stay healthy and creative!

Our Top 5 and Prize Winners will be posted March 15, so be sure to check back.

Now, it's time to put on your top hat and create! 
Hugs and happy crafting!
