Altered paint brush

Hi Everyone!!

Today I wanted to share with you an altered paint brush. I was at my local mega store and I was looking for some spackle to use in my mixed media projects. Please don't get me wrong, I love modeling/texture/embossing paste as much as the next crafter, but I don't always need it to be archival safe. Any way, as I was walking down the aisle I saw these paint brushes for 81 cents each. I knew one would work for a substitute for a Hake' brush for my daughter. The other I bought for me to try to do something with.  Here is what I came up with. I want to do a series with seasonal colors and ephemera.

All these amazing flowers and metal pieces make me so happy.

Here is a full frontal view of the paint brush.

I used the button on the back to hold the ribbon in place and to provide a place to hang it on the wall.
I hope you will try one of these super simple, but beautiful altered paintbrushes for yourself.
Have a great day!!
