Set Sail - CJS3

'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.  
So throw off the bowlines, 
sail away from the safe harbour, 
catch the trade winds in your sails.  

- Mark Twain

Heidi Swap was the host of the third Creative Jumpstart and this is the result of me having a little play with the three techniques she shared.  It's not perfect, there's a few things that didn't go according to plan and I've tried to make adjustments along the way, but that's part of the fun of experimentation, you don't always know what the outcome will be.  I intend to share the good and the ugly with you, as I attempt to loosen the stranglehold of perfectionism and work through the Creative Jumpstart tutorials!  It's not easy for me to share the 'uglier' stuff with you!  Not that I'm saying this is ugly, but I do see a few imperfections!

This is a 6 x 6 inch paper and I'm thinking of adding some holiday photos to the page.

Amanda and I went on a Seal Cruise when visiting Stanley, a gorgeous place in the north west of Tasmania.  I got rather green in the gills not too long after leaving the shore.  The skipper  noticed and encouraged me to sail the boat nearly all the way back to the jetty (this can help people suffering with sea sickness - apparently putting an earplug in one ear is meant to help too, but it did nothing for me!).  One of the tourists on the boat was totally freaked out when she saw me steering the boat and keep telling the real skipper that he should be sailing the boat and not me!  It was all a great laugh, and steering the boat did help me to feel a little better, but boy was I glad to put my feet on solid ground!

 It might be best if I do all my exploring, dreaming and discovering on terra firma!
