The circle pallet was painted with several shades of blue paint.
For a bit of shimmer, I spritzed on a spray ink.
Once dry, I used the 6" Beach Fun Stencil to add several stars and sea shells to the background with brown ink.
Next, I painted the Octopus Chipboard Embellishment with dark blue paint so he would stand out from the background.
I wanted the Octopus to appear happily floating amongst the sea shells.
