I don't really know where this fits in, but for a recent Altered Paintbrush swap I made a feathered  friend. She's a phoenix with wooden dragon wings (from a paint your own dragon kit that was broken), dyed feathers from a feather duster and an unfortunate encounter between a cat (he's belled now) and a mourning dove.

The brush is wrapped with torn fabric and more fabric scraps, ribbons and paint are added.

Yes there is a brush in there! It is meant to hang from the ceiling or other high place and the slightest breeze makes it flutter.
