In the past year, I can proudly say that I've tried at least two hobbies: journaling and coloring. What I love about these two activities is that they're so chill, 'di mo kailangan mag-isip masyado if that makes sense, haha! With journaling, I can just freely write my thoughts on paper and automatically, I'd feel good about myself. As for coloring, I get to be like a kid again. I can finally use all those adult coloring books that were given to me as gifts and be as creative as I want. They're perfect for when I want to step away from my screen and go offline, even for a short while.
But I gotta admit though, minsan I find myself wanting to try a new hobby. Wala lang, para maiba naman. If like me, you're looking for a new activity that'll keep you busy, diamond painting might just be something you'll like. Keep reading to know more about it.
What is diamond painting?
Diamond painting is "a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers." Using an applicator, you take several resin rhinestones, one by one, and place them on an adhesive color-coded canvas painting. The end result is a pretty artwork that you can either use as home decor or even as a gift to your friends.
Want to give it a try? Here are a few diamond painting kits you can buy online.
