Don't throw away those old crusty paint brushes. I painted and stamped this old paint brush and attached it to one of my journals. The journal is a project I do quite often, I take apart old hard bound books and recover them with my painted canvas. I added the pages with a pamphlet stitch and colored and waxed thread. You can find this project in my book. Very simple and easy to do.
I attached the brush after I covered the front with a little bit of heavy black thread and some gorilla glue, then I added the inside cover canvas to cover up the tied treads.
