Comic Style Art Journal Page by CT member Alexa Doebler
Posted Jun 12, 2019

Today’s project is creating an art journal spread in the junk journal I created a couple weeks ago for Crash the Stash. I had no initial plan, just started creating. However, once I created the tag with the girl’s face, I immediately became inspired to create a comic book feel to this page. Come check out how this girlie is a superhero even without a mask!

Hope you enjoy the process & thanks for watching!

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!
