17 Feb Happy Shamrock and Clover Love
If a shamrock blooms late, do we still celebrate? Absolutely! So you may think that St. Patty’s day is over here in the United States, but we shall not ignore that this lovely clover represents Ireland, all year long in the grandest manner. Therefore, our shamrock is here to represent.
I created this with 2 shades of green and 1 gold. Once you start your project, you will see how versatile it can be. If you choose to stop half way, a delicate heart silhouette has been created. One of the things I love about this project, it morphs itself into a clover, but it can represent any occasion of love. As always, I recommend mixing it up with different paper colors… stop half way to make hearts instead of clovers… Oh how I love the variations of a simple idea. It is in the hands of the creative paper designer!
See my snap shots, this project is easy and produces a lovely result! Get a few more visuals on our pinterest page
