Happy St. Patrick's Day
I was actually looking for some cool screen savers, and Mixbook backgrounds. When I cam across this picture. I thought it would make a great decoration. To go with my "Oh So Lucky Plaque" and "Lucky Jar" I bought some crackle paint over the weekend. I was originally going to use it on some wooden eggs. (I may have to buy some more). But instead used the whole bottle on this picture.
I painted the background in an antique white. Let that dry, then used the crackle paint. I let that dry for 6 hours, it was pretty thick. I'm liking' the crackle look . I cheated and used Cricut-"Celebrate with Flourish" to trace on the shamrocks. And "A Child's Year" for the Irish Hat. I did however freehand the swirls. Tee Hee. The ribbon around the hat is for real. It was yellow, I used a gold ink pad to color it, and added a ribbon thingy for the buckle. I have it displayed on one of my front room tables, I just love it.
