Hello everyone!

I have entered a number of swaps at Mini Album Scraps and this one was a challenge, as I'd never done an altered paintbrush before.  Someone had posted one and mentioned looking on Google and another person said they had seen some things on Pinterest - so there I went to search.

There's something about the color pink.  Well, I removed the bristles because I thought yuck - looks like a gnarly old beard!  I then covered the short nubs and made a leaflet to replace those bristles.  But I needed a ledge to have on opposite sides of the leaflet.  I added flowers, organza ribbon, a itty bitty book and charms to decorate.  It came out so well, I made one to keep for myself:

I'm usually a person who sticks to what she knows but I'm glad I had to "think outside the box" on this one.  I'm quite pleased at how it turned out.  I hope you like it ladies.

Happy Crafting! :~)
