Brushing up on a few things

Hello my friends! Time is winding down for this Christmas season and for this decade - can you believe it?! I've been puttering about, in between being a sloth, and just brushing up on a few things... 

Among the many things I like to upcycle are paintbrushes. They are such a different palette to play with and they will go with any genre or style you choose.  I think this one is Haunted Steampunk Meets Royalty 😁. The metal trim and jewels makes me think of a crown while the cheesecloth and poison bottles conjures up a haunted laboratory. But both work together!

If you've never tried upcycling a brush, you must! They are a wonderfully different kind of decor piece - a true 'art' brush! 

I'm entering this at Sandee & Amelie's


  1. Thank you for sharing with us at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges. An incredible upcycling and it is a beautiful art brush with many layers and a good history. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Hugs, Susan

  2. A very cool idea!! Many thanks for sharing with us SanDee's and Amelies Steampunk Challenge!

  3. Definitely majestic! Your royal steampunk paintbrush is an absolute treat - what great embellishing and layering. Love it! I'm still in Christmas hibernation (don't come out fully until after 12th Night on 6th January!), but am trying to do a bit of catching up with people even so. Happy New Year!
