Diamond Painting

First Diamond Painting Finish + Next Project

“Owlie” – (because I can’t think of anything more original right now 😂) who holds the distinguished honor of being the flag-bearer for my new-found hobby [Diamond Painting] – is finished!

Here he is framed & displayed in our little grooming room:

I covered the canvass with a sheet of plastic on the suggestion of the cleaning lady. She was worried that dust might settle between the beads & wiping them would cause the beads to come lose – smart observation!

(Oh and I’m really sorry about the poor quality of these photos. It’s been cloudy/rainy lately so I’m using indoor lighting only 😭).

And because I am just “high-strung” like that, here’s my next project:

Drill pens up in 5! 🤩

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 😆 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! 😆

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.  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 ❤️
