Let's see what more of our DT has created!!

Please click on the designers' name to visit their blog. We hope you’ll take a minute to go see their work up close... and as long as you’re there – please leave them a little love!

Don't adjust your sets! I went for a very silvery blue colour way for my feminine Steampunk tag to try and create a metal feel. I had great fun and my Weathered Wood Distress Ink Pad was grateful for the outing (he has sat at the back of the shelf for too long!). Please visit my blog here to see more details.

So, here is what I did. I actually had to search dos and don'ts of Steampunk since I've never done anything like this before. I'm pretty happy with the outcome! Please hop over to my blog here to see more details.

The tag has been made of a number of layers and diecut foil cogs. Since we celebrated Father's Day in Australia recently, this was the perfect opportuity to produce a male-inspired piece. Pop on over to my blog to see what I did.

I honestly had NO clue what this was going to be when I started.  I'm still not sure I know exactly what it is, but it was a lot of fun to play!  All I can tell you it is an ATC that features some industrial flower- like things growing in an imperfect garden! Please visit my blog for more details!

I have loved Steampunk since the style became popular.
Come by my blog and check out my "Steampunk Sweetheart"!

I created a new page in my art journal that is full of creative inspiration... a little bit girly and a little grungy, too. Pop on over on my BLOG to see all the details.

We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your creations and we hope that you will join in and share them with us! Stop back next Sunday a brand new Artist Spotlight + Mini Challenge. Have a wonderfully creative Sunday!
