Faux Driftwood Sign

I've been in a beach mood.  No, I don't want to squeeze into a bathing suit, bake in the sun, or swim in the cold water, I just want to go for a walk.  I want to explore.

I want to look for driftwood, shells, sea glass, and any other little treasures I might be
 able to use.

The nearest beach is at least a 1 1/2 hour drive from here...without traffic.  I'd love to replenish my driftwood supply, but just haven't had the time to get out and explore.

The next best thing was this old wooden concrete trowel.  Kind of drift-woody looking
 don't you think?

I cut out the "beach" stencil with my Silhouette, taped off the arrow, then painted the shadows free hand.  They're a little wobbly because of the heavy grain in the wood and the two cups of coffee I had this morning.

The handle holds it up at just the right angle.
