  1. OMG Rachel you are amazing!! I can sit here all day and watch you. When I watch time lapse I feel that I have to do things fast. How long did this piece of art take you to make?

    1. I worked on it over the course of three days, but that included a lot of drying time and thinking time too :-)

  10. I am new to mixed media and just came across your video for this journal page. I'm pretty sure it's not just a journal page, but, rather, a work of art. I loved watching the page come to life and now I'm on a mission to watch many more of the journal pages. My journal pages look woeful and I am determined to improve. Thanks so much for sharing your art.

    1. I'll look into adding an icon for email subscriptions. I wasn't aware that Julie had seen my work. I love using her stencils. Very talented lady :-)

  17. I have watched this so many times now. I love it. You are so tantalized. I was just so curious as to where you got the words from. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that they were from Madonna. Just thought that you might want to acknowledge where you got them from in your list above. ;)

  18. Did you allow the sprayed background to air dry or did you use a heat gun?
    This is gorgeous. I love your videos, thanks for the inspiration!!

    1. I usually allow thing to dry naturally, rather than using a heat tool, so I'm fairy sure that's what I would have done here, though I don't remember for certain :-)
