Marabu acrylic sprays and stencil for today’s Crash the Stash
Posted Aug 3, 2017

I’m in love with the new Marabu sprays. The colors are fabulous! This was a lot of fun. I started with a random pull of papers that I didn’t think would work, but I love the colors that peak out from under the paint. It adds just enough interest and doesn’t take away from the design of the page.

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!
