“Peaceful Moment” mason jar art journal page by CT member Evelyn Walter
Posted Jun 17, 2020

Do you remember my first make for the team? I made an art journal and I thought it would be time to go on filling the pages.

So I made a page using some of the gorgeous stencils from Shawn. I wanted to make a page in a calm and peaceful mood and what represents rest and relaxation better than lavender!

  So take a cup of tea and 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!

    I absolutely love this mason jar with lavender. Your technique with this is soft and understanding. The background is wonderful, your instructions are clear and the music in the background is soothing. Thank you for inspiring me!
