Looking for the perfect gift..Free Friday…. a free tutorial….
Posted Oct 31, 2014


I am always asked about the perfect gift or I am commissioned to make the perfect gift. So I thought I would help…. calm the Holiday craziness with an all in one video for CREATING a unique and special gift without alot of money involved. wahoo!

Below is the first part of the video showing you the steps to creating the adorable snowman bag…., FOR FREE.  Then if you want to get the rest of the goodies just click on the link below to purchase…. IT’S ONLY $15.00.…  I hope you enjoy this and create some truly meaningful gifts.


What you get with the video….. 3 pages of supply lists, for each element and step by step instructions, 6 pages of downloads. Templates, background collage paper created by me, stamped burlap, plain burlap… All the goods to complete this project. You will just have to have a few things on hand. The best part is how inexpensive these gifts will be for you to give.


So excited to see what you create….. I hope this helps with all the Holiday gift giving.  I will be doing a series of gifts that you can create over the next few weeks……  Happy creating….

Always know that you are loved!

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!
