With each, I took a photo, rendered it into a stencil, and then used that stencil to create a portrait either in mixed media collage or oil paint. I think these would be great presents for the holidays - I'm probably just going to hand them out to the fam!

what did you use to make your stencils? i usually prefer contact paper, but it seems that this might be tricky on top of paint or paper.

the one on newsprint reminds me of this etsy seller:

I'm sorry, I'd usually explain my whole process, but I am actually selling them on my Etsy and would rather not reveal one of the 2 trade secrets I've managed to acquire, lol. Smiley

You might have luck with re-positionable spray adhesive if the paper is sealed with something first.  Just a guess.
