Dropping in today to share my altered paintbrush inspired by the Dusty Attic August Moodboard. The colours are so soft and shabby and I love the softness of the pale blue.
So here is the moodboard..
Really pretty right?
And this is my interpretation of the moodboard.
I so love how this turned out, it is just so pretty. I guess you can tell I was inspired by the colours and the shabbiness of the moodboard.
I layered multiple pieces of Dusty chipboard as the base of the cluster.
I then added flowers and some art stones for added interest.
More chipboard was then added again along with a sprinkling of butterflies.
The entire thing was then covered with a couple of coats of white gesso and then once dry I went about adding the colours.
I added frayed white cheesecloth throughout the cluster to add more texture and softness to the brush.
