Mark Making Art Journal by CT-Andina Sling
Posted Feb 27, 2019

Shawn’s new stencils ‘Scribble marks 1 and 2’ are particularly suitable for creating a quick and easy art journal spread. As I show you in my video, the right page was ready quickly, so I decided to also do the left page 😉

I used several colors of acrylic ink to create a colorful background. Then I added some washi tape and some collage. To make the collage stand out more I added some white around the flower with my Uniball Signo pen. Around the girl, I added some shadow with my Stabilo All. And the last thing I did was glue a quote on the page. It says ‘stop and smell the roses’, but I wonder if it is a rose… 😉

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!
