When selecting the image to use this week I chose this beautiful cameo by Floppy Latte Designs of a sailing boat and it can be found right here. As I live very close to the river I see many sailing boats along our stretch of the coast and it reminded me of the Thames barges seen recently in the fantastic Jubilee River Pageant. I was struggling to find the right sentiment for my image and I was watching a tribute to the late Robin Gibb and I wasn't aware that he and his brothers wrote 'Islands in the Stream' sung by Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers. These are some words from that song that I thought fitted perfectly with the image and as a tiny tribute to Robin Gibb.
I've simply used a black card base and mounted the image on to some sea green card from my stash. I used a Spellbinders Edgeabilities die on a couple of strips of sea green card and added a couple of cardboard hearts. The image and the sentiment have been dusted over with a blue distress ink to take away the starkness of the white card.
