Thank you for visiting the 2Crafty Chipboard blog today.
Charmane here with you to share an ocean inspired layout
using some of the recent released Beach Chipboard.

These pieces are absolutely perfect for those days by the sea
or when you have explored the ocean. Various Corals and 
Shells reflecting your beach finds.

2Crafty Chipboard used...

NEW Seaweed Grass set 1
NEW Seaweed Grass set 2
NEW Seashells set 2
NEW Mini Word set 3

Apply a light coat of Gesso to all the chipboard pieces so you can 
still see the details. Then colour them with Distress Oxides by making 
a palette on your glass mat or alternative with Gathered Twigs, Tea Dye,
Bundled Sage, Salty Ocean and Prize Ribbon. Stamp each ink pad and
spray with water and begin painting your chipboard.

If using multiple colours as I have, then dry each colour before 
adding the next. Also allow some white to show through on some
pieces for contrast. Once dry I highlighted some of the details with
a White Gel pen.

I arranged the Coral and Shells in layers between flowers,
Muslin some foam tape for definition. Finished off with some
Blue Prills and Art Pebbles for added texture.

Gather your Beach memories and try out these NEW 2Crafty
Chipboard pieces that are sure to inspire your creativity. 
Look forward to sharing my next project with you all soon.

Until next time...
