Good afternoon everyone!
Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful summer!
I haven't done much creating this summer but I am slowly trying to ease my way back into it.
A card here,
a tag there...
Today I want to show you a first for me,
I altered a paint brush!
I've painted quite a few walls in my time but never a paint brush!
Here it is.....
Not being one who plans out her projects I decided that I would with this one...
so pulled out a couple of wooden diecuts...
a house, a tree and the letters to spell HOME.
Do you see them?
Oops, here they are...
laying here on my desk!
So much for having a plan!
I gesso'd the brush,
added a crackle look with texture paint and a stencil,
sprayed it all over with several different sprays,
then after a few different lace placements,
and the elimination of the original idea...
I finally finished my piece!
Here are a couple of close ups.....
The flowers I used are from Prima.
I tucked a few pieces of bead trim in here and there between them.
The brown gem spray coming out of the bottom of the flowers is one that I've had for a while.
I've tried to add it to a few other projects and it never quite fit in...must have been waiting for this!
What do you think?
I used my bow-it-all to make the bow using a piece of lace and a piece of seam binding.
The dangling gems I've had for ages!
I think they worked quite nicely here!
Below is another look at the finished piece!
I'm entering this in the
Moore Art from the Heart - Altered Paint Brush challenge HERE
