Atc mini book with creative team member Mary Szymanski
Posted Jun 13, 2018

 What inspired me to make this ATC Mini Book is my love of making ATCs. I’ve been creating those little tradable works or art for about five years now.  The other day I was looking at my stack of ATC blanks and thought, why not make a little book?  I taped them together with masking tape and used Shawn’s Collage Pak papers and awesome stencils to make a sort of mini master board. Folded her up and viola! An ATC Mini Book!  I hope you enjoy the video. Happy crafting!

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!
