This is a necklace that I made with small shrine. that I have altered with rusty colours and then punked up.
The base Necklace for this is a rusty key that Zuzu gave me.
Rust is the theme on Alter it Monthly in September. and rather fittingly our sponsor is the Vintage Supply Co. lots of amazing unique vintage items to be found there and really reasonable shipping costs to the UK. Just as well as we at alter it monthly are regular customers.
For a chance to win a voucher to spend in this Aladdin's cave of alterable items and items to add to altered art, all you have to do is alter an item on the theme of rust. It can be a rusty metal object, a new object you rust up yourself, items using the colour rust or maybe use the paper rusting technique to give an item a rusty theme, then share it with us at Alter it monthly.
Both of my examples are listed for sale in my Folksy shop.

I have just listed this for sale on Folksy. The little watch is a working digital watch and I think this necklace is so cute. Its backing is a TH Bookplate with large wings attached, aged with acrylic Paint.

I have been messing around with a few bits and pieces lately. I drilled holes in this Dragonfly so I could coil the wire up its body to try and make it look a bit different to some of the others I have been using. But I quite like the effect so i reckon a fair few of them will be looking like this now, a least until i get fed up with it and have to find a different look for them.I have put this up for sale in my Folksy shop.
This is the challenge on the Artistic Stamper this month and you can win some blog candy too. This is my entry for it. A definitatly old Pocket watch and a selection of new and reclaimed items used to. This will be going up for sale in my Folksy shop soon.
