Switching it up

Excuse the pun but there it is...I love altering switch plates. 
They are little pieces of art in themselves ♥

Carolyn created an awesome frame from a switchplate cover...but then Carolyn is awesome in her own right.
This is my newest one that I made which is in my art room, I am entering it in

I used an old paint brush on this piece, the bristles were splayed and it had a glob on glue on the tip of the handle so it was ready for art! I printed out a sentiment on the computer and glued it onto the brush handle and then added a sprig of flowers alongside it.

Here are some more of my "little canvases" I have hanging up

in the hallway... (made out of gel prints)

in the bathroom...( paint and collage)


and this one is some type of cover because they rewired the place and made an entire new outlet.
(mostly paint)

So you can see, I really like making them :)

These all look great! Love the addition of the paint brush as well as the dry wall tape for texture! Must try altering a light switch one day! My hubby probably has some in his tool box!
