I had never done an altered paintbrush so I decided to join Donna’s swap to give it a try. The beautiful butterflies from Reneabouquets were the inspiration for this project. I love the colors in the butterflies and used those as the basis for choosing the other colors. The bird image is from a Stamperia paper. The gorgeous frame is ReneaBouquets chipboard that I embossed with peanut butter embossing powder from Sparkle and Sprinkle. I painted the brush with Finnabair acrylic paint and wax. The lace is from Hobby Lobby. Satin ribbons are from Ribbon Retreat. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Thanks for looking. I appreciate your comments. Many thanks to Donna for organizing an inspiring and fun swap.
