                 I love how this one came out--the art is so beautiful....
This one was a joy to work on even though it used square drills...

I am actually sad to have it over...;(((.  Kind of like a really good
book that you are compelled to read and are sorry when it's done...

Here is a little bit closer shot....I know it's titled
"The RavenQueen" 
but when I look at all the strands coming out of her head
                         I think of how sometimes I feel just like that ;))) lol
                                       This is one I will frame...

Now: for my next project [which will be a Diamond Art Club piece]
called "Nefertiti" ...............

                 Here is the thumbnail picture of this one 

AND here is the true size:
--it is a B I G canvas and a test of whether I like their canvases and
            this style of artwork...sort of "stained glass" in that all the
                            areas are outlined in black....
                                   She is really a beautiful lady....

Today I will be kitting up the drills into my containers to ready the
canvas for painting...

  1. Wow! Lovely sparkly finish.

    Nefertiti looks like she will keep you busy for quite a while, too.

  2. Oh my goodness-Raven Queen is just stunning. And, the Egyption Queen looks so hard! Really cool, tho. Lovely post. mary

  3. Both of those ladies are very pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Congrats! That's quite an accomplishment! Your next one looks very intricate too. So nice!

  5. Those are amazing pieces of art, Julierose! I'm curious how you make them. At first I thought they were cross-stitched, but when I looked closer, I realized it was something different.

  6. You are really enjoying your diamond creations, finished one lovely lady and all set to start another!

  7. Lovely. I looked at some, and it appears that the diamonds are just used to highlight some areas.

  8. Raven Queen is beautiful, I love the way the raven is hiding a half of her face, very mysterious!!

  9. Hi Julie your Raver. Queen looks fantastic,well done my friend xx

  10. Oh, my goodness, Julierose! The raven queen came out SO beautifully! Thanks so much for sharing!
