I am partial to recessive genes. These genes are usually viewed as a symbol of luck, like having red hair or an extra leaf on on a plant, such as a 4 leaf clover. Both traits work well in decorating for St. Patrick’s Day. Here is a tutorial on how to create simple shamrock art. Sometimes when you over decorate for St. Patrick’s Day and similar holidays it can be a little obnoxious. Keep it simple and pretty and embrace the lucky four leaf clover.
Here is how I started…
I used a canvas board and primed it with white house paint.
I cut out a heart from card stock and located a pencil.
I placed the heart on the canvas and traced the heart with the pencil. I arranged the heart shapes to give an impression of a 4 leaf clover pattern.
With green acrylic paint I painted the hearts.
Once the paint was dry I used my gold metallic sharpie and drew little “x’s” all over one clover.
The finished piece is clean, simple and pretty.
