Good Luck by o-kaykay Good Luck by o-kaykay
It took me quite a few goes but I've finally got the shot I envisioned.

The story behind the clover...
When I was little my Grandad told me about four leaf clovers and how they were lucky. I ran straight outside, determined to find one. It didn't take me too long! I brought it back to my Grandad who pressed it for me to preserve it. I've kept it ever since and recently bought this locket so I can keep it on display. It always reminds me of him.

For those who have asked the clover is around 15 years old and the locket was purchased from Etsy.

If this was a necklace for sale I'd buy it :D and not just because of the luck it would bring but because the way it was placed, into a necklace. The blue, green, and slight yellow colors in the background work very good with this picture considering they all match and go well together!

It seems to me this too hard work and creative thinking to do, I know I wouldn't have thought of it ^^ I love the picture altogether and the silver of the necklace works great with the clover and background!

I would say this is more interesting and fun looking than any other photo I've ever seen. It's simplistic but intriguing personality really brings out the child in me :) I would love to own one of these, this was the perfect touch to a beautiful necklace!

Wonderful job my friend, very awesome xD Here goes my second All 5tar. lol get it?

Every time I take a look at this piece, I imagine myself in the past. It makes me feel nostalgic and brings me to tears.

For me, this photo is simple, yet heart warming at the same time. It gives the feeling of looking back at your childhood, which was once full of innocence and curiosity of everything around.

Also, the colors give a calm and serene feeling to it. Then the leaf itself seems so fragile but, the memory behind its history lingers. The story you had touched me.

To sum it up, you just blew my mind. Thank you. X'D This was a really beautiful work of art.

this was so inspirational for me.
this is truly a beautiful piece.

as soon as i saw this i put
it in my favorites and went
out in my backyard to search for one.

a week later i found three
in a public park. i neatly pressed them in a book.

thank you so much for this great idea!
do you have any suggestions on how
i can keep them? i really like the idea
of keeping one in a locket.

Well done for finding your own luck! I kept mine in a little jewellery box before I bought the locket. :)
