These were so much fun to create, I started with a piece of cardstock and cut my own tags and then just had fun playing with vintage papers for the background. And layered with Deco art medias fluid acrylics. I’m also sharing these with you as a download in the resource library along with a coupon for the collage paks that I used, and a few extra free vintage papers as well. And to add to the goodness, the bunny stencils along with the other woodland creatures stencils are 20% off. They are already marked down in the shop.

I’m going to put “some bunny loves you” on them… and use them for Easter gifts for the grandkids. I also want YOU to know that some bunny loves you too and I’m so grateful for your constant soul filling support. Thank you for sending your emails, sharing your stories, sharing how I’ve inspired you and all the messages. It truly means the world to me.

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!
