Day 2 of the
Luck of the Irish Blog Hop
Happy St. Patty Day Wall Hanging

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Luck of the Irish Blog Hop!  I hope you had a chance to see all the creations from yesterday!  I am so thankful for all the feedback and love!  Thank you to y'all!  This has been my first time participating in a blog hop and it won't be my last!  I really had a great time and really appreciate Lisa for letting me participate!

The St. Patty's Day Wall hanging was really easy to create!

First, I purchase a canvas artist pack for Dollar Tree...and 2 canvas came in a package!  What a bargain!

I painted the canvas with FolkArt acrylic paint #459 Hauser Green Light
I used a G Studio stamp and stamped flourish clovers all over the canvas.  I used the same stamp set to make the St. Patty's Day signage.

The last step was to glitter spray the canvas.  I did this because the acrylic paint is flat so I wanted to add a little shimmer to the canvas.  The last scrapbook convention I purchased Iridescent spray from the CC International Company, I have not seen this spray in my LSS, but I am sure it is out there!

Next, I created my Teddy Bear Leprechaun using Little Scraps of Heaven SVG template collection Bears through the year.  Templates can be purchased through her site at:

I used part of a SVG called Lucky Rainbows. I used it to create my four leave clovers.  I pop dotted the clovers and added a white thread and attach to the hand.

To create the rainbow, I simply cut circles at 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, and 5 inches and layered the circles and cut in half!  Easy rainbow!

I took a shoe lace and cut it to use as the hanger for this canvas!

This creation really took a life on itself, it was easy and once I started I had a very clear vision of the end result.  May your day be full of good luck!


This Lucky Me card is 4.5X5 and I think it turned out cute!  What do you think?

The svg template I used for the Teddy Bear is part of the collection called Lucky Rainbow Bears.  I added some green glitter to add that Rock Girl touch!  This Rock Girl loves her BLING!  


I will be giving away candy!  The winner of this blog candy will receive 1 12X12 Pinecone Press Designs Calendar themed mini layouts called Painted Page Paper, 2 Yarn it 12X12 card stock  (one is of a heart and the other is the sun) and a DaisyD's Scroll tape (not pictured)
