When altered paint brushes bound for North Carolina started popping up on so many blogs I follow, I was intrigued... so I played along with Donna Downey and made one to help decorate her new studio walls.
I first met Donna at scrapbooking classes organized by Creating Keepsakes a zillion years ago, and since then I've taken many of her online classes. I hope someday to get to the new studio and take classes in person.
Donna has weekely feature on her blog called "Inspiration Wednesday" where she shares free how-to videos. She'll knock your socks off!
For my brush I used Tim's Sizzix heart cut out of grunge paper. I added three metal clips painted with acrylic paints, and stamped the silver/metal part of the brush with alcohol inks to get the blue patina. I typed the words on my typewriter (for real) and stamped the letters with a Studio 490 background stamp. Lots more blue and black paint finished it off.
I know a lot of you are playing along too. Please let me know when you post your brush... I'd love to see them!
As always, thanks for the visit. Hope you have a great day!
