Angel of peace with gelli prints and gesso texture Sunday inspiration 12-1-19
Posted Dec 1, 2019

This is a different color palette for me, but I was looking for calm and this is what came out.

It was perfect for more of those yummy gelli prints that I’m trying to use up. The vintage wallpaper in the background complimented the whole thing.

Using my stencils as my guide and adding a little texture with gesso through a stencil and it’s perfect!

She is the angel of peace…. which I NEED right now. Peace is not about everything being perfect and calm, but having the wisdom to know that even in all the crazy, I can still practice peace. I share all about it in the video.

Have fun watching

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!
