My Altered PAINTBRUSH ~ a bucket list item


Hi UmWowStudio Fans!!!
Lynne Forsythe here....
I can't hardly believe it's Fall already....
where did my summer go??

My Heart and I have spent some time this summer
doing a few bucket list items. 
And I checked one off my list
an Altered Paintbrush.


I stumbled upon an Antique Store and found
a bucket with some old paintbrushes in it. 
I picked the one I liked....
brought it home 
and it sat
and it sat,
and it sat
on one of my work tables
until recently!!


Now, you may have seen my post on the
UmWowStudio Embellishments page. 
I worked at my paintbrush,
and I picked at 
and I arranged and rearranged it.
I was torn....color or no color.
I pondered on this question and more for days!!


and decided on.....only a little color.

Do you see the UmWowStudio Chippies??



and one from
Leafy Mash
painted green also.....

placed randomly on the paintbrush.


I have to say.....I LOVE how my paintbrush came out!


LOTS of Texture with a touch of color!!

Thank you for stopping by the blog to
check out my latest creation
and bucket list item!

Soak up the Sun

It truly feels good to be back to creating
.....that is not wedding related!

To get me back in the groove,
I needed a bit of help with inspiration so I visited


I LOVE the beach theme and the BEAUTIFUL colors.

As I pondered the mood board, I decided I wanted to create ATC's
so I chose to focus on the colors first.

I pulled out a piece of 7 Dots Studio ~ Palmistry paper
from the Fortune Teller collection.
I mixed up a concoction of
Gesso, High Impact Paint and Glimmer Glam
and splattered it on the paper surface.
Drying each layer as I went.

Next, I pulled out my UmWowStudio ~ Grid Stencil

and applied various texture mediums through the stencil
randomly on the paper.

When the mediums were dry I used a pipette
to drop a bit of Bronze Mist onto my paper.

Now I had completed "paper" which I cut into 3.5" x 2.5" pieces. 
LOOK at all the wonderful ATC bases I have to work with!

Sticking with the beach theme, I pulled out a piece of

cut it to size and colored it with a bit of Glam, along with a flower.
Do you see the seaweed looking chippie?

which can look a bit like seaweed.
I colored it with a bit of Glam and then cut it into pieces.

Lastly, I mixed a bit of sand with a smidge of Clear Gesso
to accent my ATC.

I applied the mixture to edges and used it to adhere
the tiny shells.

I used the words for the Fortune teller collect to round out my ATC.
