I've seen some mixed media that used paint brushes as part of the art work and I've always liked that look.

Like this

and this

So I recently made my own piece.  Lots going on - gesso, texture paste, mod podge, lace, ribbon, book pages, die cuts, doilies, lots of paint, white gel pen. 
I was pretty happy with it and it was a lot of fun to make.

 Oooh! I really like the look of this. I would have the hardest time giving up my paintbrushes though. I love all the textures you created.

Thanks guys - Gozer, I have so many old messed up paint brushes that it was pretty painless to reuse them like this!  Grin
