Since Spring is
supposedly right around the corner I thought I would make it a dual season craft.
My blocks are 3x4. I painted the Lucky side in a mix of Green Olive & Green Curry, then painted it in two coats of Summer Linen. Sanded each block to get a distressed look. The Spring Blocks are painted in Carrot, Hydrangea Purple, Meadowlark, Camellia Pink, Pond, Green Curry, and Gray Wolf. Each of those also got two coats of Summer Linen and a good sanding as well.
~Recipe for the blocks~
Leprechan & Pot o' Gold -- Leprechans
Rainbow -- Let It Rain
Grass -- Picket Fence Box
Peeking Bunny -- Peeking Bunny Basket
Flowers -- Journal Tube Note Holder SPRING
Lucky -- Harrington -- FontZone
Spring -- LD Carefree by ScrapNfonts-- Silhouette Online Store
Various -- DCWV
I wanted to add some eye catching texture so on the gold coins I added some yellow stickles and on each of the clouds I added an outline of Liquid Applique. My tube is actually quite a few years old so I do not remember where I purchased it but you can find it here on Amazon. I really like the way it puffs up after applying heat to it.
It ended up being a pretty versatile craft and I am pleased with the way it came together. Thank you for looking/visiting!!!
Til Next Time
