This is gorgeous. Been trying to learn some new background techniques. I forget how much work goes into a beautiful background like this one. I'm so impatient with drying times and waiting, but seeing something like this definitely makes me want to slow down and take the time to do it right!

Absolutely beautiful! I love that you put the product names on the screen, and I don't care that you don't talk in your videos as one poster asked. :-) I also appreciate the fact that you list all products used in your description. I have watched many videos where they talk and/or show the product so quickly that one cannot figure out what they're saying or showing. It appalls me that people are so rude as to post a negative comment on such a beautiful piece of work, rather than thanking you for sharing your creativity and expertise with us. Thank you so much for sharing.

I wanted to say thank you. Your work is so inspiring. I’d been very nervous about moving from card to canvas and into more 3 dimensional creations but after watching your videos I was inspired to start. I love the way you combine different media and make use of different mass produced items (inks, stencils etc) to create truly unique works of art. What you create is so beautiful and well crafted. I wish I had your talent. Thank you for sharing it.

This is so beautiful! I just found you & your channel thru Pinterest. I coincidentally bought two 8 x 10 canvas' today because they were on sale. I had no real vision of what I was going to do with them. After watching this I am totally inspired! Little by little I will order some Shimmerz products as they are exactly what I've been looking for. I'm so excited! Thank you for sharing your amazing talent!

You always amaze me with your never-ending talent. You are certainly the best I have seen for a long time and I watch many others but they pale in comparison to your fully instructional and entertaining videos. Definitely number 1!!! I can't wait for the next one to arrive in my inbox. You have inspired me to get my craft room created and then I can practice some of the techniques you have shown me. Hugs xxx

Absolutely beautiful. I love all the layering. I do have a question though. A lot of artists start with Gesso, cover it up with paint, use Gesso again to go over the color and on it goes. Is this technique needed to get the dimensional effect you are going for? And I really appreciated that you put the product name on the screen! Your video's are clear, concise and gave me some great idea's for making my own mixed media art. Have you written a book yet?

Absolutely stunning. I love watching you piece it all together and the colors together are amazing. Thank you so much for sharing.

You're art is absolutely gorgeous and stunningly beautiful!! You are so talented Gabrielle. It is always a pleasure to watch your videos. I must thank you for inspiring me to begin creating my own mixed media canvases after watching your videos. I would never have done it without your help :D

I watch your videos over and over and over again - I never fail to enjoy how you craft your beautiful pieces and am trying desperately to put something similar together in my own work. I love your use of colour, your way of showing what you're using, and if you make a mistake and something doesn't work too well, you are not too big to admit it and show us a way out. Thank you so much Gabrielle - sending much love
