  1. Breathtakingly beautiful! Thank you for brightening my day. :)

  2. Rachel, I love watching you work and always look forward to what you'll do next. Thank you.

  3. I can't find enough words to describe how beautiful this is , it is beyond my knowledge but
    I will say it is fantastic and that statement just not is enough wow wow!!!!

  4. Thank you Rachel ... a masterpiece as usual and truly beautiful! You are such an inspiration to us all! Carol x

  5. Love watching you create. Don't know if you can tell but I follow your blog through netvibes (do not like bloglovin) thanks as always for sharing.

  6. Rachel you really are an inspiration and have encouraged me to try lots of mixed media art which I've found I love, thanks for sharing and showing what's possible. x

  7. pretty nice blog, following :)

  8. Wonderful,amazing,beautiful.....

  9. Tis turned out absolutely lovely!!

  10. Wow! I know I'm a couple years behind everyone else, but found your video whilst looking for Spring inspiration for a DT project I'm doing, I adore this and love that you sped up the video so that it was a decent length but not too much that supplies and technique were a blur ( I find this to be the case often on others unfortunately). Your project is truly amazing and it's really inspired my to look beyond my comfort zone ( was going to say out of the box but that sounded obvious and cheesy in this case haha). Suffice to say, I've now subscribed on you tube and will also check out your other projects both on yt and blog. Thanks for sharing your talented projects. X

    1. Glad you liked it. I always try hard to present my videos clearly, but without being unnecessarily long - afterall, most of us have other things to do most of the day, lol :-)
