New video and old video
Posted Jan 27, 2014

Hi Friend,

Just wanted to let you know that I started creating a new 24×24 piece and I thought it would be fun to have you help. I have put together a video of the start of the piece, but I would love for you to tell me what you would like and let’s see where this piece goes. Colors? Soft or Bold? Word or Words? Background images floral, vintage? You tell me and I will take all the info and video tape the next few steps in creating this piece with  your ideas!

Then when the piece is done, I will give that piece away to one of you who commented.  I will put everyone’s name in the bucket and draw the winning person!  Every time you comment, share or pin, your name goes in the bucket. Just send me a message here or on my face book page, every time you do something  So the more you get involved the better chance you have to get the piece for free! I will even pay the shipping.  This is part of my giving year!

Click below to see the first video.

Also the peaceful video that I did a week or so ago was set to private, so no one could watch it.  Some one finally told me, soooo I fixed it!  You can watch it here. This is a full length tutorial, start to finish.


Looking forward to all the great ideas!

You are loved!

Big Smile=Shawn

Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!
