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! :~)
