DIY Art with Sayings & Quotes Inspired by Ocean, Sea and Beach

Shop Coastal Decor

I've always had inspirational words of wisdom around me. I jot them down on pieces of paper that I use as bookmarks, or put them in places where I can see them. Now I'm thinking of turning some of them into art! So I thought it would be lovely to start the New Year with a collection of DIY Art with sayings and quotes inspired by ocean, sea and beach.
