Alter it Monthly have Teamed up with the Vintage Supply Company to bring you this months theme Rust. By Taking part this month you can be entered in to the random draw to win $15 to spend in the Vintage Supply Co's Etsy Shop, where you will find all sorts of reclaimed vintage curios and items that would enhance any altered art or mixed media project. From Watch parts to architectural salvage.
The Vintage Supply Company have ever changing stock so its worth revisiting and catching some wonderfully unusual items.
This Month I have used a vintage rusty Door plate to make a hanging, and an old vintage pocketwatch .


  1. Zuzu,
    I absolutely ADORE your steampunk watch! I will be working on one soon. Just got into steampunk and it is really interesting.

  2. The first piece is very au natural .. the combination of rust and wood works so well together along with the other nature elements, really love this piece Z x

  3. That door plate is completely charming... and the pocket watch is very inspiring. I shall have to make an effort to enter something this month - life shouldn't always get in the way!! =)

  4. I am in awe of your work--it could inspire muses themselves!!!
    I love these pieces, not only for how beautiful they are, but because they were made by someone who inspires others with their generous spirit.
