Slow and Steady Wins the Race


As we start this new month of May, I want to share with you another tip on how to keep your diamonds straight. I already discussed about the checkerboard pattern, using multi-placer pens, and straightening rulers. However, I believe this tip is also very important as we sometimes forget to just enjoy the process.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Diamond painting isn't about how fast you worked on your canvas, but it's about working on it day by day and seeing your progress as you go. That's the beauty about this craft, it's a whole journey. So the key to keeping your diamonds straight is really just by placing the diamonds on your canvas one by one and making sure they fit in the grid lines properly. Work in sections and peel off the protective sheet as you go. There's nothing more satisfying than seeing your canvas unfold before your eyes.  

This photo below is a Home Craftology canvas that Shelly is working on. According to her, she didn't use any tools to help keep her lines straight. She just put the diamonds one by one on her canvas, but she pointed out the importance of having good beads. She didn't have a problem aligning this one as all her beads have the same size. She said that this is the result of nice quality beads.

As mentioned in our previous newsletter, it's really important to choose and work with good beads. It makes a difference if the beads you're using have the same sizes. Don't worry about removing some bad beads along the way as each kit will have a lot of extras to complete.

Diamond paintings are meant to be looked at a few steps away when it's hanging on a wall or displayed on a table. Those little gaps and crookedness won't even be noticeable at all... Please give yourself a break as you deserve a pat on the back for completing your project! Don't worry too much about the imperfections on your kit as it only shows how much work and effort you put in this project, and that's what makes it perfect!

Sharing with you Sabrina's work with a Home Craftology kit. She shared 2 photos with us, a close-up version, and also a whole photo of her canvas for comparison. As you can see, the close-up version looks really good and she was able to successfully align her diamonds straight. According to her, it took not much effort to keep the rows straight as the diamonds fit perfectly. There may be a few small gaps but when you look at it as whole, you don't see any of that. All you see is a beautiful and perfectly made diamond painting kit!

Please keep in mind that if you're worried about how your finished canvas will look, stand up first, and take a few steps back from your table. This distance is how your finished work will be looked at when it's already displayed. I'm sure that'll help you worry less about the little things and appreciate your work even more! 😉
