And if you think that picture is marvelous, you should see the Phoenix in person! It is magnificent! So perfectly me! Thank you so much cmarion3! And thanks for posting pics!

I also received from artista83.  She made me a bright red cardinal! Love it- he is absolutely fabulous! Cardinals are one of my favorite birds- how did she know?  I will try to get a pic up soon! Thank you, thank you artista83!

The time has come
The walrus said
To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

Moniqerramsey has been tied up (why is this time of year so busy?) and asked me to post the Altered Paintbrush I sent to her.
She writes in her application:
  • Any colors you do not wish to receive? .....(accent of red ok, but not dominate).
  • Any theme ideas you would love to receive? Burtonesque (I adore all things Tim Burton)
So what happens, I use red! I mean, how can you make a Queen of Hearts without RED!

I found an artists rendering by Michael Kutsche of the Red Queen for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and I was on my way. "Off with their heads" she shouts!





And the picture that started it all....

Reviewing all the paintbrushes so far in this post makes me want to finish my craft witch. She's been languishing around in her undies 'cause I've been too busy!.

I love the variations on the theme, so creative and wild. Witches and monsters and gnomes and birds and oh my.

Thank you everyone for wonderful ideas and fun.

rec'd from Scrapkatt. What an awesome brush she did up for me...

Kitty!!  Kitty in the grass, no less.
I absolutely adore this brush! The white tail, the stripes, the button eyes, the tiny collar, the flowers in the grass. How wonderfully clever and so well constructed.
The back...

Thank you soooo much, Scrapkatt. I will hang it above my craft section today.
