I used a wooden cigar box and painted it with blue chalk paint. Then I dry brushed over it with some gesso to give it a beachy feel. I used some netting to add to the top of the box over the layers.
I used tea dye and vintage photo distress stains on the chipboard nautical anchor. I think it really adds to the beachy feel of the box. These chippies are so awesome. They just take all kinds of inks and paints.
