One of the many things I did on each of my training cruises was plotting on charts. Here is a picture of me training a first year cadet on how to plot fixes gained from the GPS, celestial, and/or land navigation.
I used tons of layers here. Layers of papers, stickers, fibers, flowers, paints, mists, ribbons of all shapes and sizes. I just love this July kit from Birds of a Feather, it is just jam packed with so many wonderful nautical papers and embellishments to it too hard to pick just one!!
I wanted to break up the layers I had created from the background page with a solid color,but to use another square or rectangle would have covered up to much of the background paper, and I absolutely love it - solution use a circle. I played with the size, starting larger and going smaller until I found the correct one to fit the page. Using the Kreaxions Circle Cuter from Just Imagine made this task super simple, I could even use the same circle and just cut it smaller without wasting more paper!! I then aligned my title stickers along the curve of the circle.
The smell of the salty air is like none other, what wonderful memories I have of my days at sea!!
