This would be a really great project to try with different designs and colors and vary the thickness of the lines. Thanks for another creative idea.

Love the plastic bag paint application! Will have to give it a try. I know what you mean by something not being your favorite, but this video gives me lots of ideas to branch out from like trying all kinds of non-art supplies to paint with. Crumpled cellophane, bunched up ball of rubber bands, textured fabric, crumpled mesh vegetable bag, wad of bunched up yarn, old hairbrush, etc come to mind. Thanks for the inspiration!

I do like the technique! I might have done something to the diamond after the tape was off – maybe some iridescent paint streaks or something to change the stark white of the outline. (I have some Tri-Art gel medium that has a sort of translucent crushed glass look – it can be tinted, too. Maybe it would look nice over the white or even with a pale tint!) Love the background, and yea, got those ’70s rock vibes LOL!

This was the first instance I’ve seen of someone else using a blue background and topping it with gold. I’ve made embellishments for my cards using misted watercolors on cardstock which I run through a paper punch when the cardstock is completely dry. One of those punches just happens to be a “diamond”, a definite favorite among my students. I’ve misted the cardstock and used it for a background as well. One of your past videos showed you using a pearl-colored liquid watercolor, and that was the inspiration for me to try adding pearl, silver, and gold to other colors. I mist some blue, indigo, and violet, then let it thoroughly dry before adding anything else. The gold liquid watercolor seems thicker and requires more dilution, otherwise it just plops onto the paper. Properly thinned, though, it makes a wonderful sheen.

I do like it! There is just something about it that draws me in. I think if it was me I would add to the gold streak over the white parts, to bring part of that part to the front.

Joe Maysky says:

I agree that it looks like a rock album cover but I love that. If you hate looking at it, varnish it and let your daughters keep it in their room since they love it! I can see using the grocery bag technique all the time too even if I don’t replicate the diamond.

Funny GamingTM says:

I love diamonds!!! this is beautiful!!! You have twin daughters??? Omg

Southern Angels Btq. says:

It’s different! you are right it does look like a rock band album cover.. something a teen would like in there room. That is probably why your daughter likes it so much! Is she going to hang it in her room?

Boulderbon says:

Super cute! I love how it turned out. I might have to try this, and make a smaller version for my vanity 🙂 xoxo

Britteny Evans says:

Love this!!!!!

Niamh-Learns says:

I like those gold streaks. Makes me think of… kind of a David Bowie lightning bolt, or something like that. Diamond motifs are really trendy right now, so I’m not surprised your girls loved it. 🙂
