About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Altered Paint Brush

Hi all;

In an earlier post, I gave some details on how I was creating an altered paintbrush for the September Altered Paint Brush Swap going on over at http://scrapsofcolor.ning.com/events/altered-paint-brush?id=4098125%3AEvent%3A1182433&page=10#comments.

Hopefully, my swap partner, Maxine has received the altered paintbrush that I created for her.

And here it is...

Products used: paint brush, white/coral acrylic paints, white glue to crackle the paint, 
Want2Scrap bling, ribbon and lace from my stash, 
mulberry flowers, stick pin, and K&Co Charlotte card stock

It was something new.  Something that I've definitely never tried  before.  But it was fun; once I got the hang of assembling the brush! It took a couple of tries to take apart the brush without damaging the parts that I actually wanted to use.  I didn't use a lot of embellishments as I didn't want to make it too bulky.  So there are very few inside the mini-album.  It took couple of tries to get the mini album in straight.  But once I figured out how - without bending or squishing the card stock the rest was pretty easy!

I hope she likes it!

Until next time
