Paint brush holder needed.......D

As it says above I just needed one seeing as I had the perfect cookie tin to alter.  It is also convenient that I needed to create a project for this months challenge for the Purple Team which is Texture paste/embossing  Perfect timing!

Anyhow I gessoed the tin and covered it in modelling paste.  I then embedded a stringy webbing around parts of the tin.

For the parts that were webbing free I used crackle embossing paste with a little brown acrylic paint mixed in.  I used a brownish braid around the top and bottom and attached a braid handle just in case I felt the need to hang it up.

I used a bronze metallic rub and a purply rub n buff over the textured area and finally varnished the finished project.  I was going to put some flowers on it, which I have to say I made specifically for it but they did not look right.

Why not pop on over to the Eclectic Ellapu and join in with our fun challenge this week.  We would love to see you there.
