Stroke of Color: Altered Paint Brush

Hi!  While I am drooling over Winter CHA pictures on the web, even though I wasn't there in person :(, I am home with a sick little boy and creating!  I finally got my Donna Downey Altered Brush Project done!  I've had this baby for 6 months... and well... I knew what I wanted to do with it but let's face it, I put it off.  There was always another project that needed attention.  But I decided that I'd do it this week!  I loved how it came out and it's going to be tough sending it away to Donna's Studio.  I think I'm going to have to do one like it for my "studio". 

 WOW Embossing powder on metal... LOVE that!
 Paper feather

 Gelatos and Light Modeling paste... YUM!

 Prima goodness... with some Glam on it! Oh Ya!
 Drippage with Gelatos and Stamper's Big Brush Pens on stamps.
 New Prima stencils and paint splotches!

This is one project done. I should have finished it months ago but I'm happy with it now. Now I have to finish other incomplete projects. I signed up for The Sketchbook Project for the 3rd year and this was the first time I didn't finish on time.  Sigh... just didn't get it done.  I'll still do it and share on my blog but it won't be part of the traveling exhibit.  DARN!  So, I am telling you all right now that I will have it done by May 1st.  That's my deadline!  You need to hold me to it...

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll have some fun posts coming up with new CHA product and a tutorial or two!

This is such a great idea for a project and your brush is sensational. So many details, layers, and colors to enjoy.
