Diamond painting #3: AliExpress Blond Amsterdam
Wow, this is already my 4th diamond painting. My first diamond painting was a small flower of the Action and then I made two different ones Minions from AliExpress. Because I liked the last two so much, I bought another diamond painting on AliExpress. If you are curious about my new experiences and the end result, read on :-).
What did I order?
This time I ordered a diamond painting on AliExpress with a cheerful woman and star background. The style is very similar to Blond Amsterdam. The size I ordered was 25x25 cm and cost €4.40. It was also a complete set with square stones (I like these the best), a print with an adhesive layer, a tray, pen and stuff for the pen so that the stones stick to it.
Let me start with diamond painting
First I put all the colored stones per number in a pill box, I find this easier to work than if the stones are in separate bags. I quickly noticed that this version uses upper and lower case letters... that's quite confusing, I can tell you. Pay attention!
Below I am a lot further along. While I thought many colors were similar in the second minion I made, this diamond painting sometimes has that and sometimes not. There is now a real color difference between the white colors :-). But if you look at the center of the flower, it is completely dark pink, while I really used 2 different color numbers. I'm very curious to see if it will turn out nice, the drawing is still quite rough.
And then it was quiet again for a while. I also had that with my previous diamond painting project. Just don't feel like it anymore. But when I started again, I got a lot done. Now only 20 rows left, so about 2.5 hours.
The end result of hours of diamond painting
And here is the end result. The drawing is still quite rough, but that is due to the "small" size I chose. Even though some of the colored stones looked similar, I am happy with this result. I only think the right arm is a bit of a strange color. A new diamond painting is on its way again :-).
