The dockyard in question here is Chatham Historic Dockyard in Kent. It lies on the River Medway and was a Royal Dockyard from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I to 1984. When the working dockyard closed, part of it was turned into a visitor attraction, with its many Georgian buildings including the Ropewalk and three historic warships - HMS Gannet, HMS Cavalier and HMS Ocelot.
Our tickets were valid for a year and we visited twice in order to see everything; I've previously made pages from HMS Gannet and the Ropewalk.
I used the June Week 1 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy for my page; the sketch has two photos but it was easy to squeeze in a couple more. I decided on a red, white and blue colour scheme, using an ancient stripey paper and lots of nautical embellishments in two clusters.
I started from plain white cardstock, stamping a blue pattern randomly across the page and brown postmarks where my embellishments would go. I machine-stitched around the page, using straight stitches for most of it, and zig-zag stitches adjacent to the brown stamping. Then the two embellishment areas - trying to match pieces in the large one to the small one. The anchor wood veneer is a dark wood so I inked a star to match it on the left. I had planned to use small red letter stickers for my title, but I'm out of Ds so I cut this one on my Big Shot; the letters are a bit bigger than the stickers so I'm happy that it does just fit as I wasn't sure that it was going to.
