Challenge #251 - week of 13th March 2017

This week, so many places will be celebrating the infamous St Patrick's Day and it will feel like the whole world has turned green.

Being English, I don't celebrate myself but let's see if we can find some way of bringing this celebration into a Whimsical Musings prompt.

A couple of years ago, I asked you to be inspired by a green colour palette (#127 here) so I'm not going to go down the colour route - but feel free to head back to this prompt if it talks to you!

How about we go with one of the most Irish of all symbols, the shamrock?

Yes, this week I'd like you to be inspired by clover, aka the shamrock.

Said to represent the Holy Trinity (the Son, the Father and Holy Ghost) as well as hope, faith and love, it was used by St Patrick as a visual aid to teach the Pagans his message.

I don't have a connection with the three leaf clover personally, but here in Germany the four-leaf clover is used at New Year to represent luck so that is a way I might head. But you might want to take the literal route this week and create a project about your own St Patrick Day celebrations, the number 3 (or four if you go with my extension of the symbol) or fields full of clover.

You could talk about another day of special meaning to you with its own symbolism. You could remember a trip to Ireland or just an eponymous Irish Bar. How about those of you with Irish roots? So many directions to take this.

We'd love you to use this prompt and hope you will share your creations - there are now two ways to do this!

You can either upload your layout into the Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery with the tag WM#251 or you can post it in our Whimsical Musings Facebook group. We've decided that we'll save albums for special occasions so just load up your photo to the group with the tag WM#251 in the write up text so that we can find it.
