In addition to another (less personal) gift, I wanted to give Karley and Jimmy a wedding present crafted by yours truly. Why not, right? I figured a set of crafted coasters would be a nice addition to their home. The biggest challenge was coming up with a theme for the images. I wanted it to touch them on a personal level but didn't want to do something cheesy like plastering their faces on the tiles. In the end, I conjured up the genius idea of mapping out their relationship by location. They met in NYC, currently reside in San Francisco and are honeymooning in Rome. Such a great mix of places to create coasters out of, which will remind them of how their path in life together began. I hope they love them!
I painted the bottom and side of the tiles a shimmery gold color:
I used Hard Coat Mod Podge to waterproof the images:
