Paint brush challenge

 Good morning everyone hope you have all had a great weekend,
and are USA friends hope your enjoying the long weekend.
For September My challenge is to get a paint brush used or new as
long as its 2 to 3 inch's.
 If you follow this link it will take you to the challenge on the
NING site.
 I had to cut the brush part as it was to long.
I cut a strip of paper to cover some of the metal,
Then I cut some lace to wrap round the hole brush.

 Then i hot glued one of the flowers I made and the bird
cage.Then I glued the feathers and the Bling. 

 I then added the flowers where i wanted them,Then I put the tag from 
Lady's diary from Graphic 45.
 I left the bird till last so I could stand the brush up
to place it.I got the bird from Fiona Jennings in the first kit I got.
