Decoupage placements for new table! A small tutorial!

We finally got a round table!!! I have always loved the ambiance of sitting at a round table. My husband got this for our 45 th wedding anniversary!
This was a good reason to finish some placemats I started 6 years ago.
Pictures were copied from 2 volumns of Gibson art that I have from Uncle Paul. Copyright 1902
I had done 4 and then gave up the project because it was very difficult for me to work fast enough to apply such a large piece of paper to the wood mats and make them smooth without wrinkles!
So, I have more "know how" and decided I needed to complete the series.
I still have 2 to do.
I choose the pictures for men and women to view!
Hope you enjoy my choices and love to have you come to dinner some time!
