Deco Days with Deco Art
Posted Jul 1, 2015


It’s Wednesday and I’m usually not on the blog on Wednesday but that’s about to change! Every other week I will be sharing some little tidbits about Deco Art products. It might be a video, or step by step, or just technique…. What ever my little ol heart dreams up.

Today I walk you through working with chalk paints on a piece of art as well as cream wax. I also give you lots of texture with Deco Arts Modeling paste and stencils. So check out the video and product links below.

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!
