Welland Canal

I couldn't help but marvel at the size of the ships navigating the narrow width of the Welland Canal. Piloting those behemoths among each other obviously takes incredible talent. 

I thought my scrapbook memory should have a distinct nautical theme. I found some great papers in the Bo Bunny Boardwalk and Kaisercraft Sailaway collections. I was most thrilled with the rope patterned paper.

I'm trying hard to group embellishments. It's something that challenges me. I was quite happy with my little collection of a brass circle, brass being synonymous with boats, a Silhouette cut file of an anchor, which every ship needs, and, of course, the ever traditional rope symbolized by a length of jute.

Here's a closeup of my embellishment grouping.

The inspiration for the Welland Canal is the Stuck?! May 1st sketch. I thought it was perfect for my 'ships passing' photo. The suggested banners gave me the opportunity to incorporate a number of nautical themed papers.

There will be another Stuck?! sketch posted on the 15th. Keep an eye out for it. You won't be disappointed.
