Completed

A list of my completed craft projects. This page is periodically updated. Unfortunately, I still have various art projects I have not posted to this list yet. This is not all of my artwork and craft projects. There are also quite a few projects from several years ago that I still have not finished. In the future, I plan to go through all of my artwork and craft projects and add more photos and notes.

Year Completed: 2020 – 2018 – 2017 – Childhood Art

2020 Completed Craft Projects

  • three cats partial diamond paintingThree cats diamond painting
  • Year Completed: 2020
  • Notes: Reminds me of my cat Tabby at the shelter with her two other sisters. They all got adopted. I still remember going to the shelter with my dad. This was a kit purchased on AliExpress over a year ago. I glued it to mat board and it did warp. In the future I am not using mat board, only canvas panel or stretcher bars with acid-free foam board. I did seal it with a glaze (Judikins Diamond Glaze) and I learned you have to be somewhat slow and gentle applying the glaze or some of the diamond drills will become loose and you will brush them off of their original placement.

 

  • Chateau chateau de chambord craft projectDe Chambord, France
  • Year Completed: 2020
  • Notes: I purchased the canvas poster from AliExpress.I added the ribbon and some patched and picked out the fabric from the remnants section at Joann Fabrics and Craft store. Next time I might glue the poster the canvas parially as it is just not flat on the fabric. I satin stitched the sides and then hand stitched the ribbon. I stapled it to stretcher bars with foam board. In the future I will probably glue the fabric to the foam board. I actually put it in a frame with plexglass and am hoping to get a point driver for Christmas to secure it to the frame.

Yellow Roses Diamond Painting Kit Completed

  • Yellow Roses Diamond Painting Embroidery Kit
  • Year Completed: 2020
  • Slideshow: Yes
  • Blog Post: No
  • Notes: Used yellow fabric for the background. Actually sealed the diamond painting with acrylic matte gel medium (probably not the ideal sealer) and it still has a nice since. Framed on 16×20″ (40.64 cm x 50.8 cm) stretcher bars. The kit was purchased on AliExpress. It uses round diamond and not square. I currently prefer the square diamonds. I added ribbon and the picture frame/decorative bookend corners using acrylic matte gel medium. I signed the back and added my custom sewisabel stamp. The kit may have cost around $5 and the stretcher bars and fabric etc maybe around $10 plus labor and shipping costs. I think a fair price is at least $30 for the completed and framed kit.

  • Happiness and Longevity Pig Cross Stitch KitPig Cross Stitch Kit
  • Year Completed: 2018
  • Notes: Kit purchased on AliExpress. I signed the back using fabric marker on an additional piece of fabric I attached to the back. The back turned out really nice, but I ended up covering it didn’t fit in the embroidery hoop without extra fabric.

 

2017 Completed Craft Projects

Going forward I plan to frame my diamond painting kits using acid-free foam board and stretcher bars or just adhere them to a canvas panel board or acid-free foam board. I did not glue these to the foam board and used to thread to secure the back and add the string or yarn.

  • Below are 3 coloring canvases of Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden that my dad got me as gift for either my birthday or Christmas. I colored in the flowers and leaves with marker and used yellow acrylic paint for the background. In the future I may add a fixative spray to them.
  • Then there are two partial round drill diamond mosaic paintings I purchased from AliExpress (the sunflowers and deer).
  • Then there is the winter tree cross stitch kit I purchased on AliExpress for myself. It was a good deal. It was 11ct printed and I added the sequins and beads around it. The size is 14″x14″ (35.56cm x 35.56cm). I have all four seasons of that tree, and plan to put them together in a 30″x30″ (76.2cm x 76.2cm) piece with my dads help. I can buy a 30″x30″ frame that is 2″ (5.08cm) deep from Jerry’s Artarama such as the Gotham Black Deep Gallery Frame and fit each of the four cross stitch trees in that. Otherwise I would have to go a custom route which is generally more money. I plan to frame each of the four seasons trees on 14″x14″ stretcher bars and then my dad is going help me put spacers between them and then I am going to frame them in a 30″x30″ extra deep gallery frame.

Childhood & High School Artwork Photos

Below are photos of some of my childhood artwork that my dad saved. I took the photos in August 2020. Some of it is definitely from the 90s.
