Today I'm sharing an altered paintbrush with you! Every twoish months I host a swap for Viva Las VegaStamps! -- In January we opted for altered paintbrushes.. and they've been rolling into my office for two weeks.. they're ASTOUNDING! It's so much fun to trade art with other people :)
Anyways.. here is the brush I finished to trade with some unsuspecting artist :)
I don't know why, maybe it's the warming weather.. but when other people are thinking buds and greenery for spring.. I'm thinking THE OCEAN! Being able to play in the water, enjoy the sand, eat a hot dog at the beach! So I went full out for our Nature Inspired paint brush swap and altered this baby.
The base of the brush is gessoed and distress stained with broken china. I've then laid down some cheese cloth and shells. I covered the shells in Smooch and then finished them with gloss gel. While the gel was still wet I placed eBeads, seed beads and glitter all over. Finish off with a snail stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps! and a rope handle.
And I also have a giveaway!! I've just launched a brand new product line under UmWowStudio (keep an eye out for our website to be done soon!) -- laser cut chipboard pieces!! This giveaway includes a sampling of bits and pieces from different sets as well as a couple of my favorite stamps from VLVS!
