Making a “Mark”

Last Friday I went over my friend Michele’s house for an afternoon of crafting. She got me and herself a kit of “Diamond Painting” bookmarks and we worked on making our first diamond painting bookmark.

The kit has 4 bookmarks, one representing each season (Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn):

At first it was confusing to us on how to do the diamond painting and how it worked (no directions) but we figured it out. We decided since it was currently Autumn to work on the Autumn (the purple/pink one) bookmark.

Here are some photos:

Because of the tiny little beads you work with, we put plastic wrap on our work area to try and capture stray beads.

At time is was tedious to do diamond painting but it was fun to see the progress and of course fun to hang out with a friend.

Michele actually finished her bookmark and here is the lovely finished Autumn bookmark:
