You guys, this process was so fun! I tried this stencil technique in a video on my channel and wanted to give it another try. I have struggled creating beautiful flower bouquets & wreaths and such but this I could do! I love roses, they are my favorite, but hydrangeas come in as a close second. To have them together in a stencil created by Shawn is pure heaven. I love texture. I love texture so much that it can overtake my project in a big way. I worked hard on this one to keep it simpler than others before it. I am so glad I risked trying a new technique. I hope you will enjoy and try it for yourself!

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!
