a while back i came across a blog that discussed having your friends make altered paintbrushes to decorate a room ... i fell in love with this idea and asked my friends to do this for me ... i got a good response and some awesome brushes ... but now im thinking ... this would make a cool swap.
Everyone gets say a 1" wooden paintbrush and decorates it in any fashion theyd like then sends it off to their partner.
Any interest in a swap like this?

I think Donna Downey (?) or one of the artists' blogs I follow had a project like this. And one of the many dotees I've received over the years here was a paintbruch - from AIMR?

So, yes, I'd be interested.

This would be a lot of fun Smiley Also seems like it could be a fairly quick swap that could be repeated in the future (oooo, collectibles). I've had an altered paintbrush on my pinterest for a while that I saw on this blog: http://donnadowney.typepad.com/simply_me/2012/09/the.html

I've never seen these before but now that I've googled them they are amazing.  I may be interested in this if the timing is right.
