Crystal Painting

Pin It
My niece Hayley has her own business selling cross stitch supplies (you can see her fabulous website at X Squared Cross Stitch ) and she's recently added some Crystal Painting Kits to purchase.  One of the joys of family is that sometimes little parcels arrive in the post and on one such occasion a large envelope was delivered containing one of her new kits.

The timing was perfect.  Imagine if you will hundreds, if not thousands of tiny crystals, a sticky sheet of canvas on which they are to be placed, a fortnight of school holidays where the weather was awful at best, all combined with a slightly bored tween.

Our tween spent hours with her tweezers carefully placing each crystal.  For a brief moment I had a turn too and it was very relaxing indeed, but the tween was the most enthusiastic and so I left it for her and oh-so -slowly the picture is beginning to take shape.


The Crystal Painting has turned out to be a great in between project.  It's quite time consuming, but in a good "I'm glad I got a bit more done today" kind of way and makes a pleasant change from using yarn and threads to create masterpieces.  Our tween is certainly enjoying herself!

Happy Crystal Painting 


Thanks so much for visiting.  We'd love to have you join us on Facebook , Pinterest  & Ravelry too.
