Beach Keepsake Box with Creative Embellishments

Kelley here with a beach keepsake box for creative embellishments.   I love the vintage look of the Graphic 45 collection.  I did have to give it a distressed look though. 
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.
