The Altered Brush Project

Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see who won the Giveaway....

CHECK THIS OUT.....  Donna Downey Studios
Mine is the pink one on the far left and the 8th one down on her blog post this week.

I am excited to be participating in the Donna Downey Altered Brush Project.  This was a fun project to create and I loved that I could make it showcase what I am all about.  Of course I chose PINK and my theme just had to be sewing.

Started with purchasing a 4" painter's brush from Donna Downey Studios and then went to work painting and designing my brush.  Here is the finished project.
And.... a couple of close-ups.
I painted the bristles pink and blended it into the white on the tips
Added some thread cards, buttons, pin, flowers and rhinestone bling.
 Some pearls, lace and tulle on the mannequin.
  A rub-on ruler on the brush handle along with some buttons and rhinestones. 
 I added some bling to the tulle.
Painted the handle pink and used a sponge technique with white paint over top.
A strip of fabric around the middle of the brush with some lace on the border.
Some vintage lace over-lapping the fabric strip.
Donna asked us to attach our signature card to the paint brush and sign and date the back of the brush.
I just loved this idea and her bathroom walls look great with all the brushes hanging on them.
Wish I could see them in person - maybe some day!

I'm a new follower and what a fun giveaway! Hmm, I love so many crafting projects, probably using my cricut and making season banners is my favorite. I can use some pretty paper and decorations as well! Beautiful doll house as well, some kids are going to have a blast
