{DIY} Driftwood Heart Art

As mentioned (and shown) in this post, I finally got around to using some of the drift wood Doug found during our Alabama trip last year. It sat in a plastic container on our back porch this entire time (that poor area is now our junk room it seems...must change that soon!). 



 I started by painting one of the many canvases I have in shades of blue. I wanted to include all shades, as I have light blue drapes and a darker blue rug in this room. Plus, it looks like water/sky when all blended like I did. After the painting was dry, I took the pieces of driftwood and started with the broken sand dollar piece in the middle (that was found in the heart shape). It was then like working with a puzzle, trying to find pieces that fit well and made it balanced. It's not perfect but I like it. The little extra piece on the bottom will have the location and date written on it when I find my silver paint marker. 


I love how the blue really brightens up the wall. The "Root Beer Fizzle" wall color goes a bit dark some days, especially with a lot of wood and black tones of the frames. I may have to repaint next summer, but I don't see anything happening soon.
