  18. such pretty shapes without giving so much detail that it discourages playing around and over them with your own doodles! these are really lovely.

  19. Hi,

    I love the stencils and I love the way you painted over them so the stencil images became the background for your figure.

  20. Chris’ new stencils look wonderful, and I love the art you created with them! I would love to win–thanks for the chance!
    PS. I’m signed up for your Pursuing Portraits class and can’t wait 🙂

  21. I just do a workshop from you by interwaeve, I love it and learn so much new things. Greetings from the Netherlands

  25. I would love to try these, your samples are great, thanks for the try at winning. Happy Creating everyone.

  26. The greens and blues look so nice together. I like your use of white space, too. What a unique piece. natasha dot poteraj at gmail dot com

  27. Amazing effects with the Gelli plate! Wow! Thank you for the giveaway – Chris Cozen is one of my favorite artists.

  28. That painting is awesome, Pam. I love the way you painted this “mystic woman”, who seems to float through the room. Many thanks for this impressive and inspiring painting. C~

  29. I have Chris’ book, it’s awesome! Would definitely love to add these stencils — thank you for the chance!

  30. I just love these stencils—they are the most unique, cool, amazing stencils I have ever seen. I really need them because I need to experiment with stencils that are open ended (these can be used in SO many ways–they aren’t just stencils that are shaped like birds, or flowers, or stars—they can be made to look like ALL KINDS of things, or nothing at all that we are used to). Your work, as well as all of the other people’s work I’ve seen so far—WOW!!!!!
