Oh Adele this is beautiful & has really cheered me up and brought a grin to my face. Lovely colours and I have never heard of this type of Art before - you never fail to amaze me. Well done x x

Wow Adele, this is fab! Such beautiful colours, you are doing ever so well with this craft, very clever as I know how hard it is to do. Well done.
