Mixed Media Moonlight Owl, Crash the Stash with CT member Susana Magenheimer
Posted Feb 20, 2020

This is my process video, “Crash The Stash” for the Shawn Petite 2020 Creative Design Team project.  I call it “Mixed Media Moonlight Owl.” My stash inspiration was the Shawn owl stencil I had forever and Prima Redesign chalk paints that Shawn inspired me to buy. 
In this video, I demonstrate how to take a stencil and turn it into a dimensional ephemera and how I antique my work. 
I hope you find this video inspiring.

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!
