Faith Altered Brush using Nuvo Mousse and Glitterific Paint

Hi there,
Today, I'm sharing another fun Altered Brush that I created with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I used Toasted Almond mousse as a base coat and added all of my fav embellishments:  flowers, beaded pins and dyed ribbon.  I then highlighted my brush with gold Glitterific Paint by Plaid and tapped on some white paint to enhance the overall design. I love the end result! 

The following are some close up pics.

Mixed Media Journal using Craftwell's Honeycomb Embossing Folder & Project Die


Hi there,


Today I'm up on the Craftwell blog today sharing my Mixed Media Journal created with Craftwell's  “Honeycomb” Embossing Folder, Honeycomb Project Die, Cut N Boss machine and the Snap machine. I really enjoyed creating this journal. It has loads of visual and physical texture created with the Honeycomb embossing folder and project die. I used a sanding bar to expose the embossed impressions of the honeycomb pattern in the folder and the honeycomb project die was perfect to create a stencil with. Take a look at how the project came together, here.

"She Dreams" Altered Brush

 Hi there,

Today, I'm sharing this fun "She Dreams" Altered Brush that I created with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse, flowers, dyed ribbon, beaded pins, Plaid Glitterific paint and titanium white paint. Loved the combination of the products together. I dyed the ribbon the mousse as well to coordinate with my project. I added one Tim Holtz's metal quote tokens. I used Plaid's Glitterific paint to accent the brush and metal embellishments that I used. Plaid's titanium white paint was used to highlight all elements of the brush. I'm adding some progressive shots below. Loved the end result!

Beautifiul Bloom Altered Brush

Hi there,


Today I am sharing my first Beautiful Blooms Altered Brush that I created using Rita Barakat's monthly Die Cut release. Last month, Rita  featured her Beautiful Blooms and they were just perfect to use on altered brushes. Rita's die cuts are so much fun to use and can be easily coordinated with various projects.  My project is featured on Rita's blog today, here.  Take a peek.

Altered Brush using Nuvo Embellishment Mousse

Hi there,

Today, I'm sharing another Altered Brush that I created with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse as a base coat to the brush. The color mousse that I chose to use was Custard Crème and I accented the brush with Toasted Almond mousse. then added all of my fav embellishments:  flowers, beaded pins and vintage metal hearts. I used the mousse to dye my ribbon to coordinate with my project.  I then highlighted my brush with gold Glitterific Paint and tapped on some white paint to enhance the overall design. I love all of the shimmer and glitz that the mousse and glitter paint added!

Mixed Media Altered Brush


 Hi there,

Today, I'm sharing another Altered Brush that I created with all my favorite embellishments. I applied a coat of Nuvo Coastal Surf mousse as a base coat to the brush.  added some flowers, beaded pins and resin. I also used Nuvo mousse to dye my ribbon to coordinate with my project.  I then highlighted my brush with blue Glitterific Paint and tapped on some white paint to enhance the overall design. The brush is 1 inch and one of the smallest that I have worked with. I was very happy with the size and it was just as versatile to create with as some of the larger brushes that I created with. Loved the end result.
