I spied this old paintbrush at the Flea Market about 2 months ago and I have been holding onto it for a special project.
I decided my old paintbrush would be the perfect surface to create a rustic Christmas decoration to be hung on the wall during the holiday.
I painted the handle with white acrylic paint to make the images pop. I stamped the images onto tissue paper using Ranger Archival ink. I tore out the images. I then applied watered down glue to the back of the tissue paper. I placed it onto the painted background and brushed glue water over the surface. I started with Father Christmas first and then added the house and trees on the right and the trees on the left. I added the snowflakes up the brush handle.
I added a piece of lace trim across the bottom with twine and several glittery silver bells. I then tied on a bow to the handle with a stamped Joyeux Noel using black ink on white cardstock. I cut the tag and attached with twine to the bow.
The sets used include: Midwinter, Snowy Woods, and Sleigh Ride.
