Hobart D39

May 6, 2023

Today I have a page showing off a photo of my Dad on the Hobart on his way to Vietnam. My sister found this article on the Royal Australian Navy Facebook Page and it reminded me that I had this photo in my stash. My Dad is the fellow standing on the left. I printed the photo once full size and once a bit closer so you could see the faces of my Dad and the rest of the crew from his Gun Mount. I stamped the wave image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set across the bottom of a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page firstly using Pool Party ink and then using Night of Navy ink which I stamped onto scrap paper first.

I attached a piece of Pool Party card across the top of the stamped images. I cut a “V” in both ends of a piece of Night of Navy card and embossed it using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The embossed banner is attached down the left hand side of the page. I took inspiration for my journaling from the article on the Facebook page and printed it onto Basic White card. I attached the photos and the journaling directly onto the page. I cut the title from Basic White card using the Alphabet A La Mode Dies and attached it to the upper left hand side of the page. I found a photo of the Hobart online and printed it onto Basic White card. I trimmed around the ship and attached it to the right hand corner of the page. When I look at this photo I have mixed emotions. I am glad that he came home safe and sound but sad that he had to go to war in the first place.

Bye for now
