And I am using this opportunity to welcome all our new players who have joined in during the last few months!
This place is constantly growing and attracting more and more fabulously creative people from all around the globe and we are so proud of that - but I also know that part of this is due to our players, my fab Design Team and our prize sponsors, who all make this place the special mixed media spot it is! So thank you for being so true and for sharing your fantastic mixed media art with us so constantly!
Our aim is for you to find a lot of fun and inspiration by playing along and during your visits here and also by visiting the blogs of our players and the DT! We are open for all sorts of crafters and artists, for all levels of skill and all kinds of stamped, painted, collaged, drawn,...well, media-mixed projects as long as they are handmade. These can be cards, tags, altered objects, altered art jewellery, canvasses, art journal pages, assemblage pieces...well, whatever you can think of. All we ask for is that your projects are either industrial or steampunk style mixed media projects. It's that easy and that fun!
Our challenges are open for a whole month and you can either make our Top5 (who are being chosen by the whole DT) or/and win one of our two monthly prizes donated by our generous sponsors DecoArt media and boozybear. All you have to do is stick to the few challenge rules (that can be found on an extra page right under our challenge blog header) and enter up to three projects!
We would also love it if you took a second or two to visit the blogs of the DT (for more information and images and maybe even a how-to here and there) and leave a short comment of approval! You get to their blogs by clicking on their names. And be assured - you will make them very happy by doing so!
As most of our challenges are, the September challenge is an
Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial
You will find the linky tool at the bottom of this post.
And here are the projects
from Team B:
decided to make an industrial style project this time.
She has altered the cover of her new timer and
calls her piece
"Let time stand still!"
(which is me)
I had a fun play with some of Tim Holtz' Sizzix dies
and created a steampunk necklace pendant using
his ornate frame die and some shrink plastic.
There's a how-to on my blog.
transformed an old encyclopedia into a steampunk
"Tome of Time"
used a mixed media board and lots of DecoArt media
products to create this beauty:
challenged herself by using just a limited number of art supplies
to create this awesome vintage travellers tag.
(stencils, embossing powder, distress ink and "lots of metal tidbits"
as she says).
Enough inspiration to spark your mojo? If you need some more, I recommend you hop over to the Team A post by clicking HERE. You won't be disappointed. I promise! ;)

Well...as always we hope you have enjoyed your visit and that we will

Hugs and happy crafting!
