Have you ever finished a painting project & forgot to clean the brush? Amazing how fast that sucker dries out, never to be of service again. Until now. Instead of throwing that seemingly useless paintbrush away, let's turn it into a piece of art.

As the image above (borrowed from a fellow Pinterest member) shows, a ruined paintbrush can add a “shabby chic” touch to any eclectic art collection.

Other examples (though some are larger than needed) can be found at: https://www.pinterest.com/harrylover/mini-swap-group-ideas/ (go down the page a little ways)

For this swap, let's take a dried-up or an overused paintbrush and turn it into something attractive. The paintbrush should be between 1” & 3” wide (or larger, but remember the extra postage). You will remake one paintbrush for one partner (if you don't have a used brush laying around, Dollar Tree sells them – a 3pk for $1.00).

Put your thinking caps on & tell your muses it's time to party. The sky's the limit on this project. I'm looking forward to doing one.

This swap will only be open to experienced swappers (due to difficulty level) with 3+ scores for past 6 months. I will be checking profiles. I reserve the right to eliminate signers at my discretion (eg: if their profiles don't meet the swap requirements).

We all know that things happen in life, so if you can't get your swap out or you don't receive one, please let me know ASAP, so I can "Angel" the situation.

Please remember: title of swap & user name on a swap card or note, proper postage, mail on time & rate promptly.

Also. please be kind in your rating. If the project meets requirements, a 5 should be given. If the sender lets you know that their mailing will be late, please take that into consideration. We're all here to have fun & to spread the love & friendship.

I look forward to a fun-filled swap. Love to all.

I went and bought a paintbrush, so I could have fun trying this paintbrush craft. So many cute ideas under Altered Paintbrush on Pinterest! Can't wait to play! :)
