Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes. If you have old unused brushes this project is a good recycling idea for them. If you don’t have old dry brushes then remember not to throw away the brushes when you can’t use them anymore.     Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes I’m terrible when it comes to cleaning my brushes. I always forget to clean them and I leave them with all the paint or glue on. his results in many ruined brushes I can’t use anymore. BUT I almost never throw things away, including my brushes because there is always something to do with them… This time I took all my old brushes and glued them together to create a surface to work on. I covered the brushes with rust paste to add to their degraded look. Then I added all kinds of metal embellishments and embellishments I created from …

What if I Fall Art Journal Page



Hi dear crafty friends Today I want to share my What if I Fall Art Journal Page.This page is a little different than usual in its look and process. I got these new stamps from a friend and just had to try them… this is what came out.     What if I Fall Art Journal Page Sometimes I start an art journal page from something I want to say like a sentiment or a quote. But sometimes I want to try a new fun supply that I got. In this case I got these cool stamps I just had to try. So I created the background first without really knowing how it will proceed.       I created “hills” with masking tape and then added lots of spraying. Then I stamped my page with these two funky looking girls and started adding details and color. Finally I added one of my favorite quotes that was really appropriate to …

My Top 3: Art Journaling Page Ideas



Hi dear crafty friends! You might be surprised to hear this but even I get stuck or uninspired. I always have my art journal near by and I really love creating pages but even I sometimes stare at a blank page with no ideas. So today on My Top 3: Art Journaling Page Ideas.       My Top 3: Art Journaling Page Ideas These 3 ideas are always a good starting point when I have no ideas… 1.
