Altered Paint Brush

Hi everyone and welcome back to my "happy place"
This little paint brush was sitting around just waiting for me to find time to alter it!
sooooo ive been looking at it for awhile thinking hmmmm not sure if it was "my thing" but ive also learnt about me on this artistic journey that anything can be altered to become something beautiful to look at or use!

Started off with a coat of gesso and two coats of a vintage cream paint all over the metal bits and the handle.

I mixed some paint for the candles from imagine if to match the shade of beautiful blue flowers and inked the leaves with di stress ink.

The fun part .... putting it all together.....glued some pretty laces and pearl trim to cover the metal wrap on the brush then added diamond bling before adding the cluster of flowers, candles, leaves and pearl spray with a metal butterfly at the top to hide the hole for hanging.
