Today's theme was one I wanted to tackle but didn't really know how.
Rachel of Paper Thin Personas mentioned a nautical angel. I wanted to do something nautical but not like last year's nautical set. After researching, I settled on this design.

I've pretty much always lived in New England. I'm a proud Vermonter, spent a couple of years in Connecticut, went to high school in New Hampshire, and finally settled down in Massachusetts. I consider myself rather well-rounded when it comes to my region! Where I live now, we're not far from the ocean. There are memorials in a lot of coastal towns for sailors lost at sea. Two of them influenced this outfit. One of them is the Lady of the Sea. It's a beautiful sculpture and the pictures don't really do it justice. The second is the Gloucester Fisherman's Memorial. (It's pronounced Gloss-ter for non-natives.) I've seen this one in passing but never up close.
I combined elements that I liked of both and gave it a soft, stormy color scheme. I like how the dress flows - it reminds me of ocean breezes.
Anyway, I hope everyone likes it. And thanks to Rachel for the suggestion.
More to come tomorrow!
