Eco driftwood hearts, made using wooden heart painted in Old White, Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and waxed. Driftwood from my local beaches in mainland Greece, sea urchin, pebble, or simply driftwood. All finished with a jute rope surround to frame the heart perfectly and optional jute rope hanging. The heart can be hung on the wall or tuck the jute rope behind the heart and place it on a shelf for a relaxed look. They are so cute and make a wonderful gift for someone special. Please click on my shop to buy now and you will be taken to my shop on Etsy. Fast shipping available.
Two sales in a matter of days and handsome Owl sold on the first day of listing. I am absolutely thriled to see that people do love my art! As this is new to me its given me the drive and inspiration to suceed in my Hippie Fish dream. I've also now been commissioned to make a lovely piece and I'll share it with you when its finished. Oh, and thank you Etsy for the sales.
My first driftwood owl!
He is a very handsome owl and made from natural products found locally on the beaches near to my home. The wooden mount is painted using Annie Sloan chalk paint, waxed. Driftwood for his body, tiny pebbles for his face and neck, sea urchin eyes, sea glass nose and shells with jute rope surrounding the piece and making those fluffy ears and tail. I hope you like it. He will be for sale on my Etsy shop shortly. i think I made the eyes POP!!!!
Handmade Driftwood Hearts made from some of my favourite pieces of driftwood I have collected over the last 2 years from the beaches in Lagonissi, mainland Greece. All my beachcombed treasures are used as I find them, au naturel.
The driftwood has been cleaned and carefully glued on to the wooden backing board which was hand drawn and cut out by me. The front is hand painted using the fabulous Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Paris Grey and Old White on the back with a clear wax finish. A line of jute rope runs around the outside of the heart outlining the piece and a brass hook is on the back ready for hanging, or could easily stand on a shelf for a relaxed look.
I love beachcombing and finding driftwood. The sense of its long journey and getting a feel for the piece and what it will become, maybe a heart, a boat, an owl or another creation.
Please take a look at my other work as I'm currently building the shop.
