Paint Brush Art Exchange YouTube Hop

Recently, I was lucky enough to get in on an Art Exchange.  We all are exchanging paint brushes.  After giving it some thought and holding my brush for a while, I decided to just go with what I love to do and turn my brushes into dress forms!  I did them all differently, but kept the base of the dress form and the basics the same.  

This was so much fun and just what I needed to get my mojo going!  No rules, just fun! 

Along the way, some of us decided to make videos of our process and have a hop!  So, here is the brush that I created for the hop!   

You can watch the full process video right here:

I've included some extra photos so that you can see the details if you decide to try one.  These are pretty time consuming but so much fun to do!  The possibilities are endless in dressing them.  Mine are all different and I'll be sharing them soon!

One of my favorite parts about this one is the Prima Planner Tassels.  They are beautiful and worked perfectly to add a loose, hanging detail.

Again, all my favorites!  Flowers, sequins, ribbon... the list goes on!  I'm including a supply list in case you would like to know what I used.

Ok... Now for even more!!! 

Be sure to check out all the other videos!  These girls are GOOD!  There are so many wonderful ideas that are sure to fit your style!
