Altered Paint Brush...who would have thought it could look so cool?

I had the opportunity to participate in a swap over at Boston Area Scrap Fanatics.  They are a lovely group of "crafty" paper ladies that just have a blast creating and sharing ideas.

Here is my paint brush.  I had a blast doing this.  Think I may even try another sometime soon.





See how the bristles are all curly?  Totally happened by accident.  When I was using my head gun to dry the paint it curled up the bristles when they started to melt.  I totally love how it came out.



This button and element was a piece I had originally planned to use as a necklace piece, but never got around to it.  It fit in perfect here.


All of these little wheels and mechanical bits and pieces have been laying around in my studio for atlas 8 years or so.  I got them as a freebie at my first CHA show way back in 2005.  So glad they have a new home now.

Embroidered Fleece

Gail is really into things monogramed so what better way to practice was to hop over to Walmart and pick up a few fleece pullovers.  They are a bargain at $9.95 and they are cut nice so they don't fit to boxy.  She will wear them under a vest and look super cute.


The font I used is called Vine and I purchased it from RiverMill Embroidery, over on Etsy.


I love projects like this.  They give me the opportunity to try out something new to me that is "crafty".  I learned some new things while doing this project while also learning some new techniques with my embroidery machine.

I just love when a project comes up like this!  There are many monograms in my future for sure.
