Whenever I’m at the beach at home or abroad I always collect little bits of driftwood and tiny interesting pebbles and shells. I also use little bits found in forests and woods that I then dry and use. This little driftwood art scene has been made from various little pieces of driftwood and other ‘found’ and reused items mounted on a reclaimed piece of timber. It is an incredibly detailed piece.
I love driftwood and it works so well with distressed chalk paint. Each one I make is completely different to the next which makes each piece unique.
The chunky block base is approx. 9.5cm x 7cm. The finished piece is approx. 15cm high.
The block base is a piece of reclaimed timber that has been waxed.
I have made a lighthouse from a ribbon reel and a champagne cork. It has been painted in duck egg and white stripes and distressed. There is a door made from a driftwood slither.
The cottage is made from reclaimed timber and has a roof made from Devon driftwood. The cottage has been painted in sandcastle. It has a door made from a wood slither.
There is a tiny fence all along the front of the piece made from tiny nails and wire. There is also a ladder going down the front.
The whole piece has weed, shells and stones to represent rocks.
There is a handmade boat.
I have attached some fabric pads to the base so that the whole item sits smoothly on a shelf.
There are small pieces of dried wood, bark, shells and coral used on the piece.
This item is not a toy and has pointed objects and is fragile.
The scene is well wrapped in bubble wrap for posting as a signed for parcel.
