I crashed the stash today and pulled out some wall decals and rub ons from 2003. Oh Lord!

But the object of crash the stash is to use up all the stuff……. So…I’m using them up and all the stuff gives great texture and interest in my journal pages and it’s all right there in my stash!

Have fun watching!

Supplies used: Handmade art journal, Soho soft pastels, Liquitex matte medium, a variety of acylic paints, charcoal pencil, and lots of stuff from the stash

Stencils used: spring leaves, spring words, positive words, modern pattern 3, modern pattern 2, modern pattern 6

Be inspired, create and know that you are loved.

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!
