Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! Who is ready for sunny days and beachy weather? It's Maya here on the blog today to share this 8.5 x 11 beach-themed layout featuring the Fan-shells Chipboard Embellishments. I'm a huge fan of chipboard embellishments because they can be used on any project like layouts, cards, tags, albums, etc.
▼ I used an 8.5 x 11 white paper for the background paper. Then, I tore the patterned papers into pieces and laid them to the top and the bottom of the layout to create a beachy atmosphere with blue skies and sand.
▼ For the seashell chipboard embellishments, I painted them with acrylic paint in white. After the white acrylic paint dried, I applied dry brush paint to add some blue color to the seashells. I used a dry brush and loaded a small amount of blue acrylic paint. Next, I used a piece of tissue to swirl the paintbrush into it and get rid of the wetness from the paint. The key to getting an ideal dry brush effect is by using light pressure to go over the surface.
▼ After I adhered the seashell chipboards to the layout, I also used some ephemera to decorate around the seashells that I fussy cut from a patterned paper.
▼ The size of my photo is 3 x 4 and I covered it with a door frame. Again, I decorated around the photo using the beach-themed pieces I fussy cut from a patterned paper to finish this layout.
Thank you all for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to use chipboard embellishments on your project. Have a blessed day and happy crafting!
