Gas Street Moorings, Birmingham

More canals than Venice.  More rubbish than Naples!

Today we booked to join the flotilla of boats going up/down the Thames next June for the Queen's Jubilee.  There's brave.

We also booked for the opening weekend of the Droitwich Canals and set off tomorrow.  So it's Tardebigge twice ugh!.

Looking forward to going out on the boat again.  This card was made from a photograph of a couple to teasels.  I matted it onto white card and cut the edges with deckle edged scissors (you can tell how old the card is, I hardly ever use those scissors now).  Then it was matted onto some lilac card and then onto silver card.

I cut out a panel of lilac card and rounded the edges, then matted that onto more silver card and rounded the edges again.  I added a yellow brad in each corner and wrapped some lilac gingham ribbon around it, tying it in a knot.  Then the photo was added.  The whole piece was then stuck onto a light lilac card blank.
