If you are into mixed media, tag or card making, art journaling, painting, stamping or crafting in general or altering objects....if you love adding a slight industrial and/or vintage feel to your makes and love everything that has to do with gears, cogs and other mechanical stuff...this is the place for you and the challenge to join in! ;)
The challenge theme we have chosen for this month is
"The Ravages of Time".
Thinking of peeling wallpapers, rust in all its glorious forms of appearance, peeled paint, crackle, patina, weathered wood,....show us your interpretation of this theme and enter up to three projects... and by doing so get eligible for a lovely prize from one of our generous sponsors (each proper entry counts as one vote). The sponsor for this month will be announced alongside presenting the makes of team B on June 15th.
The prize winner and Top 3 to 5 from our May challenge will be announced on Saturday, 6th June. So make sure you come back and check if you are one of them!
But now on to the makes of team A, who have once more outdone themselves on providing you with wonderful projects to fuel your inspiration! For more details, please, visit my lovely teamies' blogs (for enlarged view click on the images).

I have photographed my old company stamps as I found at a flea market.
And I think they should be used on a large manilatag.

Look closely - it's not a tag!
It's an old wall, where underneath peeling wallpaper
secret blueprints of a mad scientist are hidden! ;)
What could show "The Ravages of Time" better than time itself. That is why I created a clock. I loved to play with this Mixed Media technique and DecoArt Products - so much fun and just amazing Products. By the way I got inspired by Andy Skinner. Really hope you like it. More details and a step by step of my Project can be found on my Blog.

I needed to make birthday cards for my adult sons, and I thought as another year passes in their life journeys, maybe they are feeling the "ravages of time". Details are posted on my blog.
I hope you are as gobsmacked by my teamies' creations as I am! They really put such a lot of imagination and effort into their makes (which makes me the proudest challenge blog owner you can imagine).
The challenge is open until the end of the month (please remember our blog has Central European Time!) and we are looking forward to seeing your timeworn and "ravaged" creations soon!
Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia & the SASPC Team
