I'm not a huge collector of napkins, but I did have the foresight to join the recent napkin swap, to bolster my collection!
Seems I must sub-consciously like butterflies, because I found heaps that included them!
Or is it just that they're a common theme for napkins?
a sail boat (which I cut up)
and French writing.
I love French writing! It looks so elegant, and even the most mundane words or phrases are transformed into something magical when they're in French.
I lost count of the number of times that I glued a piece of napkin down... only to find that I had missed one of the layers. And thus had succeeded in gluing down a bit of white stuff. Aarrggghhh! I did leave a few bits for a bit more texture.
I thought it was really apt that I found a napkin with the words
Jardin des Papillon on it -
Garden of Butterflies!
And here's the whole spread. A big mess of lots of different napkins and layers all collaged together, and highlighted with white and black gel pens.
