Create Professional Looking Sea Watercolor Canvases with Free Clip Art

These DIY sea watercolor canvases feel so fresh that I thought they would make a great project for a lazy summer afternoon spent in the cool shade of your patio or porch! It doesn't require much skill since the motif is painted with the help of free clip art. So anyone can do this!

The idea comes from All Things Heart and Home where you can find all the details for this project. So equip yourself with free Sea Clip Art, some lovely sea blue acrylic craft paints, a few canvases, and off you go.

Simply print out your sea clip art and stick it on your canvas with a little bit of spray adhesive. Should there be some glue left behind when you remove the stencil, just peel it off. Your canvas can be unpainted or coated with watered down paint first. When you hop over to All Things Heart and Home you'll see that Robin used both methods.
