Natural Nautical take one

Did you know that Tattered Angels has an inspirational colour palette every week? This week it is Natural Nautical!

Here is my home decor piece for that palette.

It is a wooden heart, that first I painted white with High Impact paint, then I sand it to add a bit of a weathered look.

I used Prima marketing stencil with black High Impact paint to add my anchor. Using rich brown simply sheer I coloured a piece of cambric and I applied it on my heart with a shell.

Here is a close-up:

I added hemp rope around my heart. At the end of the rope I added to small shells.

The word nautical I printed on linen paper, underneath I added some thread and a piece of burlap. I hanged my heart on grey hemp rope.

So don’t you miss the sea and the beach already? Winter is nearly over, and till then you may create to decorate your home with natural nautical feelings.
