I started out by decorating my page. I love all things Celtic, so i first coloured the page with orange and green, the colours of the flag. I then brayered some gesso over that and then stamped lots of celtic knot stamps in different colours.
I then brayered more gesso over that and then added more orange and green.
Finally I drew a four leaf clover, coloured it with promarkers cut it out and glued it on.
Next the card...hmm well what to do. I first thought of a leprechaun, but it did seem a bit obvious..However then I got to remembering something from when I was very young.
I lived with my grandmother, she owned a boarding house. Men from out of the area would come and stay during the week,and work at the steelworks,chemical works and docks near us...and then they would go home at weekends, to places all over the country.
So one of these guys was called Aubrey, I cant remember his surname, or where he was from...we are talking 30 years ago..
Anyway this guy once told me that he had seen leprechauns in our garden, I had no idea what one was, or how they differed from fairies, or that they were from Ireland...
Once he had spun the story and had me believing, he would keep on saying he had seen them everytime he came to stay...As a child, I was desperate to see one myself lol
Isn't it bizarre the things you remember from childhood.
so in the end I did do a leprechaun..
My story seems to have ground to a halt, I just can't get into writing it..but I will do at some point.
