Today I am participating in www.Alteredpages.com's
which will be happening the first Tuesday of each month over at
It's almost St Patty's Day and I wanted to create something in remembrance of my Father in Law who not only passed on St Patty's Day, but enjoyed this day as one of his favorite holidays. He was such an awesome spirited man who loved to prank and pinch, lol. So in honor of him I created this cute little lapel pin to ward off all those Green pranksters out there who love to "PINCH" if they don't see green!!! LOL
I used the collage sheet St Pat's Day from Altered Pages and fussy cut the little Leprechaun. After all what would St Pat's day be with out the little guy!
Next, I adhered him down onto another collage image I already had. I then adhered the images down to a piece of fabric and covered the entire piece with gel matte medium. I used my Gelatos along with my Niji Water Brush to shade my quote a light green. Once all was dry I sewed several layers together and added a handemade muslin four leaf clover, ( I used Dylusions spray ink to dye the muslin) and some yummy lace, a silk rose. a pin back and some eyelets in case one might decide to add a chain or ribbon and wear as a necklace!!.
I used an image from AP's collage sheet Music to My Soul and adhered it down to some heavy card stock to use as a display tag. I created a couple different styles as you see below. I typically only create duplicates if I want to keep one myself.
I will be using these sweet pins as little RAK's to some lucky person as well as giving one away here on the blog. All you have to do is leave me a comment and on Friday I will use my random number generator to choose a lucky recipient!!
