  1. Truly enjoying- typically not too crazy about stencils, but you’ve interested me! Think I’ll give a few a whirl, individualizing them!! Thank you ever so much!!????

  2. This is definitely one of my favorite videos! I love the gold gesso background, and also love the idea of using gesso through the stencil just as an outline for your painting! This was beautiful, great ideas!
