This project was not difficult, but my little OCD and perfectionism came into play a lot. You will see I added to the picture at the end because I was not pleased with the size of the "diamonds". Usually what happens is I continue to "fix" things, and then I ruin them. I've been trying to hold back on doing that lately. haha.
The original tutorial called for starting out by drawing a few diamonds onto your canvas. Ain't nobody got time fo' that, so...I just went for it. I definitely copied off of the color scheme of the original post but it matched the room I was going for so I figured why reinvent the wheel??
All I did here was make a diamond in the middle of the canvas and use short light strokes to drag out the brush strokes. Let that dry, and then do the same with the next color only a little smaller. Let paint dry after every coat.
The last thing I added was the mettalic gold. I really wasn't a fan of this gold when I added it to my canvas, but it's starting to grow on me. I thought it was a little too yellow/greenish, but even Mike commented on how nice it looked the other day. Truth be told, since I thought I was going to be changing the gold color, I didn't drag out the edges on this yet, but you might not ever know that if I didn't tell you. haha.
And here is the finished product!! I'm super happy with it and can't wait to do some more!
