I used a ton of stencils in this one. I also broke out the oil pastels. I didn’t use the letters I just couldn’t make them fit with how I was feeling with the page. I also used my home made sprays. (combine airbrush medium and fluid acrylic ) Just an fyi… oil pastels were that last thing I used because oil and water don’t mix, If i tried to paint over the oil pastels it wouldn’t adhere.

Enjoy the video

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!
