Hi there 🙂 It’s Sunday, which means that it’s my day for inspiration at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group! Our theme for August is “Recycle” – it might sound hard at first, but it’s seriously easy….just reuse something….cardboard, tissue, jars, string, ribbon…..you get the hint 😉 I salvaged an old, used paintbrush for my wall hanging. It was on the way to the bin, when I scooped it up, as I’d seen some paintbrush projects on Pinterest, and never had a brush. I selected this image, available in the Circle Oriental Kimono Lady set. After coloring the image with Copics, I set it aside while I went to work on the brush. I randomly wrapped some cheesecloth and pearls around it, then added some yellow and blue seaweed-y type stuff. I popped the image over this with some foam, then added a gold seahorse that I diecut with a Sizzix die 🙂 I had so much fun making this, I’m going to be on the lookout for more paintbrushes, so I can make more!! Here’s some pics of different angles 🙂
I’d like to enter this in the following challenges:
