Altered Paint Brush

A dear friend Marilyn sent me a paint brush to alter. She and her friends altered them, she thought I would have fun doing one and I did.


Also, here is another site full of inspirations from altering paint brushes. At the bottom of this page, you can go to even more.

If you ever get the incling to alter a paint brush........give it a go. It is great fun!
I gessoed the brush and did the bristles with gesso and sobo glue. Then I added all sorts of vintage pages from books and some different tissue papers. After that, a little wash of light color and some stamping pads for edging. Then I had velvet leaves, seed beads, some beautiful lace, a Tim Holtz HOLD charm, and a few other do dads, along with a quote that I love and we were there! Multimedia collage is therapeutic and fun!
