Good Morning to one & all! Hope you've all had a good week & looking forward to the weekend?
For My Father's birthday, I've been wanting to make him a nautical themed gift for a while, seeing as he & his partner live next to the beach (at Clacton, Essex) and it certainly is a wonderful place to live. Especially this time of the year (the non rainy part lol) where the beach is still bare, no tourists as yet and it is peaceful looking out to sea...Oh I feel another visit coming on...I digress, sorry...back to the reason why I am here...lol...blogging about my bits n peices! I decided to decoupage a couple of MDF hearts & I already had the themed napkins that I needed, so with a bit of planning what was going where, and a splish splash of decoupage glue & varnish I came up with these delights. I also printed a quote I found onto one of the layers removed from my napkin - by attaching it to a sheet of copier paper and whooshing it through the printer. Then decoupaging the same way as the rest of napkin. The first one (on the left) I kept for myself, (Truth be told, the images & quote are a bit wonky - that's a trademark of mine don'tyaknow!) as our bathroom is nautical themed - and the other two are actually one - I decided to do both sides so if a change was felt then the heart could be turned over - PLUS I also liked the lighthouse and wanted to incorporate it into the theme....
So, there you go. I was rather pleased with how they turned out, what do you think?
