Recycled Shutter!!

This is a great recycled project. The wooden shutter was a Freebie and already painted black. I added the sky blue background, then a slightly green ocean using painter's tape to make my horizon level, and finally a sandy color for the sand of course. Grass and palm trees create the beach scene, little bits of white paint on a brush give the illusion of breaking waves and finally wispy clouds and a seagull complete the sky.  As a plus, the back side of this piece has the 7 lighthouses of North Carolina (but I forgot to take that pic). You'll have to see it in a later post!!
