Shamrock Art Specimen

One simple project I did for Valentine's was some art specimen which I showed you here. So for St. Patrick's Day I decided to create some more.

Here is what I started with - green and white card stock, good ol' Elmer's glue, and some shamrocks I picked up at Michael's. I have a million left so if anyone wants some shamrocks to make their own, just let me know.


I cut my card stock to fit my 8x10 frame then added my shamrocks with Elmer's glue.


I used two shamrocks and stacked them on top of each other.


I had some gem stickers, so I added a sticker to the middle.


See how pretty they look now.


Then I framed it. I left the glass behind my artwork. This project is so easy you can even have the kiddos join in on the fun.


I ended up putting this on my entertainment center.


Another project down - several more to go.
