Thanksgiving Altered Paint Brush


Today I would like to show you an Altered Art Paintbrush that I made for Flip That Swap.  It is the very first time I tried it and I think I like the results.

It was quite a bit of work.  I made it for my friend Rhonda so the tag has a little R.

Here is a close-up of the paint brush.

Recipe for this Altered Art Paintbrush:

Spellbinders Picot Edged Circle
Brown Crinkle ribbon
