Hi! It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#57. This time instead of a theme or stash, we want you to use colours on your masculine projects. We want to see BLACK, WHITE and SPLASH OF ONE OTHER COLOUR - you can pick any colour, but ONLY ONE!! Don't forget you can make any type of paper craft project - cards, ATCs, scrapbook layouts, Project Life, 3D projects, digital pages, and there's always mixed media too. Just have fun and make it masculine.
Here are some projects from the team to inspire you:
I did enjoy seeing all your fabulous creations for our Steampunk challenge. You guys really rocked the challenge. Lots of lovely grunge, clocks, cogs, vintage, and some very elegant ones too. As always it was tough to pick our winners, but here they are:
Hi! We've a fun stash challenge for the next couple of weeks here at The Male Room - TMR#56. We want to see WOOD on your masculine projects. It can be faux or real - there are some lovely wood papers about! Don't forget that at The Male Room we like to see all types of papercraft projects from ATCs, through cards, to mixed media, scrapbook layout to 3D projects. Just have fun!
Hello! It's time to announce the winners of our Wheels theme challenge. As always you guys produced some amazing projects - some of which could even have been for our current challenge!! Anyway, moving on to our winners:

This is such a clever card. Love the map and route laid out.
The two card are just super. Fabulous take on the challenge!
Hello and good morning! This year seems to be going by somewhat faster than it should be! I can hardly believe it's already March! The upside is that it's time for our new challenge here at The Male Room - TMR#55. For the next couple of weeks our theme is STEAMPUNK. The dictionary definition is:
"a genre of science fiction that has a historical setting and typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology.
a style of design and fashion that combines historical elements with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction "the essence of steampunk is homage to vintage fashion with a modern, sassy twist".
If you're not sure what steampunk is, check out the videos at the end of the post - there are examples of a canvas, scrapbook page and a card.
Steampunk is a fun genre. You can make it reasonably clean and simple or you can go wild with the layers, distressing and inks. The main thing is that your project has a masculine feel! Have fun. Deadline for submission is midnight (GMT) Tuesday 14th March, that's 8.00pm EDT in the States. We've got an extra hour in the States because our clocks have already gone forward, but in Europe and the UK it doesn't happen until 26th March!
