I have been really busy so I haven't had any time to create and blog and I miss it. Last year I had the opportunity to go 3 different areas in the US and 3 different beaches. I used to live on Kodiak island in Alaska and grew to love the ocean. Now I live hours from an ocean. Visiting so many last year has made me long for the coast. I'm going to Florida in October, but until then I thought I would do a little decorating to hold me over until then. I was inspired by a boardwalk. When I went to Florida I walked down this long warm, sandy boardwalk and I knew I wanted something with that feel for my art piece. I went to Lowe's and purchased a 3' x 4' beadboard. They come precut and cost about $10.00.
