Talented Tuesday - "Toothbrush Painting" by Haven

***You'll find a linky at the bottom, because we thought this was such a cool tutorial, we wanted to see what YOU do with it!!!***

Hello and welcome to my Tuesday Tutorial for Lasting Memories. Today I'm sharing the painting technique I used in this week’s "trash it" layout.  I kept my old worn out toothbrush to paint and splatter on my layout.  I started by drawing several circles on my card stock with brown ink, and then went over it with the toothbrush and yellow acrylic paint.

Warning this technique is messy so protect your work surface.

To get a fine splatter hold the toothbrush so that the bristles are up and drag your thumb across them from front to back as seen in the photos below

For larger splatter and drips turn the brush so that the bristles are facing down and repeat the above mentioned thumb drag.

For the larger splatter I used a mixture of yellow, white and black paint

And here's a close up of what it looks like before the photos are added!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Now it's your turn to try this yourself!!! If you have a chance to try it, link up here so we can have a peek!!!

Haven, this is GREAT!! Since I don't like to get my fingers dirty, so you suppose I could use my SPIN BRUSH instead??? :) Actually, I might just have to get my fingers dirty for this -- It's pretty COOL!! :) Thanks for sharing your talent, Haven!!

Wow! Now, with this idea, we can definitely still use our toothbrushes even after their three-month use! We can definitely feel our money's worth when we use these toothbrushes in creative ways. My brother loves to paint, I bet he'd love to try this idea!
