Posted Sep 13, 2018

I tried limiting paper in today’s journal page… but, I didn’t do a very good job.. I just love paper! I did manage to use only 3 colors plus gesso and black. I love the outcome and it’s always fun to try and challenge ourselves to create differently.

Enjoy the video!


Supplies used:

Handmade journal, scraps of paper, Deco art media – gesso, matte medium, fluid acrylic (Vermillion, teal and primary magenta) fine line applicator – white and black acrylic (mixed with airbrush medium and water), charcoal pencil

Stencils used: old world minis and doodle minis

Have a great day! 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!

    I cannot find the video I saw where you gave the recipe for paint, airbrush medium and water for the fine liners. Could you post it or let me know?

    Thank you so much!
