Altered Paint Brush

Wanted to post my Altered Paint Brush I made for my Scrappy friend Jacqueline Rosemond over at Scraps Of Color hosted by Mary Joyce.   The theme was wild animals or floral.  She requested something soft or pastels and this is my creation.  An ATC was attached with a digital vintage lady. Can't remember where I got her from.  I added stickles on her dress.  I put Gesso on the brush and added gold pearl and crystal stickles.  Doilies were added on both sides.

For MJ being such a sweet and supportive Sistah at SOC and serving as hostess of this swap, I made this  mini paint brush for her with a few of her favorite colors.  I was SO excited to send it to her I forgot the digital image of the dancing lady, but I'll probaby send it to her to attach.

Love making this project for my partner. She did a lovely job on mine.  Looking forward to the next altered project at SOC.

  2. Great job on both...the first one is very them both!

  3. Oh wow, these are such creative ways of transforming an ordinary paint brush. Love the shabby chic feel to them as well.
