beautiful paper napkins

Now this is the finished collage, from my last post.
As you can maybe see, I have used a papernapkin to the background.

I found those napkins in an wholesale shop-and bought 12 packages à 12 napkins inside.
You can se there are 4 different prints on them- of beautiful schript.

I will put some in my Etsy  ,if someone could be interested in buying a packet.

I think they are gorgeus for backgrounds for collages of all kind-
AND for putting on your table :)

Tomorrow I`m leaving the island ,to go see my grandchildren in Copenhagen-
and my husbond stayes home,to take care of the shop.
I can`t wait to be with them for some dayes.
So now you know ,what is going on, if I dont get time to visit, you while I`m away.

I wish you all beautiful dayes- spring or autumn..
See you soon again dear friends.
Love and hugs-Dorthe

Those are napkins? Wow, Dorthe, they are gorgeous, I would have bought lots and lots of those as well. I bet they will look great on the table, real conversation pieces.

They sure make good background for collages as well, as your beautiful piece proves. You have done it again, Dorthe, you made such a gorgeous collage. All those sweet embellishments, just lovely.

Have a really good time visiting with your family!

Oh Dorthe, these papernapkins are lovely! I have used paper napkins in my art before too, but I've never found any that look so pretty with the script on them. I will check out your shop! Have a lovely trip!

Sweet Dorthe
What a stunning collage my friend!
It is full of dreaminess, sweetness, love and friendship, softness and roses - all the things which I hold dear! That rose is so pretty as is the girl holding an armful of more roses. And all this beauty collaged on an exquisite serviette. What a lucky find indeed. These will go in no time at all my dear.
Big hugs and my love to you,
