A ROSE IS A ROSE (DP)
It is a large square canvas "15 and 7/8ths by 15 and 7/8s"...
it took me a long time to finish,
but I enjoyed every line of the whole journey...
I find placing the little drills, one at a time (they have multi-placers
that you can use, but I prefer the one-at-a-time method)
really is calming...
If sleep deserts me during the night--I just sit and place in the
hush and quiet...
and this eventually calms my beating heart.....
See how sparkle-ey it is....;)))
On the whole, these drills (little diamond squares) were really good
and the canvas was really sticky although
there was one spot where they missed gluing--!! -- ack!!
But, I just used my Tombo Mono glue (from my scrapbooking
days) to attach about 8 little drills; and they are fine...
As you can see from the enlarged photos--there are a few
little gap areas that appear;
(some of the drills may have
been ever so slightly smaller than the rest)
but I know that when framed and viewed
from a distance they will just
I have discovered that, contrary to what I thought when I began this,
I really enjoy the square diamonds as much or maybe more
than the round ones. They give a satisfying little "snap" when you nestle
When you use the rounds, a tiny part of the
pre-colored canvas is left to show a bit--but again, once framed and
viewed from afar, this just merges with the drills...
And so I have "kitted up" my next painting; it is much smaller, but
just as lovely....
[Hey Barbara, I hope your kit arrives soon..]💕💓💓
Hugs to all on this steamy Monday--but the S U N is out YAY!!!
