Summer special challenge

Hello everybody!

  Welcome to our annual Summer Special, dear steampunk and industrial style friends!

 I would like to invite you to play along with our two months 
 It is an "Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial" themed one again and instead of the usual month you have until the end of August to enter up to five (instead of the usual three) entries this time.

We are sweating here again, summers are becoming hotter and what better can be better than to think of a cool sea breeze, the deep blue sea and its fascinating worlds. 

I was inspired to start with a new sea album. I choose a crafting album in size 25 x 25 cm.

Fold - Out


some close up's

 the anchor is a wooden shape from Calico Craft Parts, 
I fixed it with a brad at the upper end, so it can be moved easily


Yes, that's right :-)
I think some more pages will follow this summer!

 My  teamies at SASPC have come up with many
inspiring and different versions
on this Steampunk/ Industrial summer special challenge.
Please have a look and feel you inspired to create your own idea.
We are looking forward to see your new creations!

 Happy summertime!
