Quilted Clover


I love changing my front door for every season. So, I was very excited when I received this 4 leaf clover from Signopoly. I'm only a wee bit Irish, but I still love to decorate for St. Patrick's Day.

There are grooves cut into the wood, so I painted some of the sections with the color, Limeade, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.

Dixie Belle has a new line of silkscreen stencils in their Belles & Whistles line. This was the perfect project to try them out on. I chose to use the Mandala set. Each pack comes with 3 sheets of stencils. There are several designs on each sheet & you get approximately10-12 uses out of each one.

 I placed the sticky side down over the Limeade when it was dry, & stenciled on the color, Evergreen.

The silkscreen gives you a nice crisp design.

My plan was to use the stencil in random places, but I loved it so much that I decided that every section would get stenciled! So I continued on.

I painted the remaining sections with Evergreen & the Moonshine Metallics color, Gold Digger.

When using the metallic, it works best with a similar color underneath as a base. So, I used the color Colonel Mustard before painting Gold Digger. However, I did not need a base color when I used it on the stencil.

Do you decorate your door for every season?

While I was at it, I used the Limeade, Evergreen, & Gold Digger, along with the color Daisy to do a paint pour on another clover. And, of course, I added a little green & gold glitter to this one.
