Mixed media tags free download and vintage papers Sunday Inspiration
Posted Dec 23, 2018

These fun mixed media Christmas tags or card were so fun to create. I loved creating the collage papers with deli paper and stencils, I hope you try this technique. The deli paper also creates beautiful texture and an almost encaustic effect.

These tags and the vintage music papers I used are all free in the Subscriber resource library.

I hope you can use them and create something beautiful with them.

I’m wishing you happy holidays and share in the video that we can choose how our holiday experience can be. I know the holidays can be stressful and hard, but they can also be a beautiful time as well.

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!
