Diamond Painting

Bitten By A Sticky-Glittery Bug

Hello my friends! How have you been? I’m doing wonderful! 😎🌞

If you were wondering why I was silent it’s because I was bitten by the most wonderful bug ever – Diamond Painting!

I was looking for something for my daughter to do during the school break and thought to give diamond painting a try. So theeeen ….

Oh. My. Lord.

I’m hooked 😍😍😍

At first my daughter was tentative, so I got to working on the pattern (?) first. But now she won’t sleep until she’s done a patch or two πŸ˜† I myself am so enamored with it, so sure that it’s gonna be a passion, that I’m dedicating a page to it on this blog! πŸ˜†

If you don’t know what Diamond Painting is, I liken it to cross-stitching but you use beads (resins) instead. The result is a really very pretty & glittery picture.

We’re starting our crafty-colorful journey with this cutesy adorable owl which is, as of this post, about 75% done:

… But I’ve got big plans to move on to more intricate pictures. As a matter of fact, it’s taking me a lot of willpower not to do like most DP enthusiasts do – go on a huge diamond painting spree 🀩

If you happen to love this hobby too, I’d love to hear from you.Β  Do share your experience or some tips that’d be useful for a neophyte enthusiast like me. Likewise, if you blog about diamond painting, do leave a link in the comments section so I can read about your DP adventures too ❀️

    1. Go for it! It’s relaxing and fun. And waiting for the entire picture to be done is quite the ride πŸ™‚ Let me know how it goes πŸ™‚

  1. Oh my gosh! Diamond painting is soooo addicting, isn’t it? I have two finished diamond paintings and another waiting to get started. It’s so funny, when I was working on the 2 projects I finished, I would go into my craft room where it was sitting on my desk and think, “I’ll work on this for about 20 minutes.”. The next thing I know, it’s 45 minutes later. I just couldn’t seem to tear myself away from it. So fun! I did a Diamond Painting and a Diamond Dotz and I do prefer the Diamond Painting better. The tiles are square rather than round and the coverage is better. Enjoy your Diamond painting!
