At a recent Mixed Media club meeting we hold monthly at our local scrapbook store one of my very talented, crafty friends handed me a magazine cut out that she thought would be perfect for one of my projects. 

She also was downsizing her craft room, to my advantage, one of the products she gave me was the Deco Art Weathered Wood Crackle Medium. 

It took some practice (and patience) but I love how well it worked.  Hope you 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!
