“Fall Reflections” Mixed Media Collage Canvas Set by New CT Member Jannette Simmons
Posted Oct 21, 2020

Shawn’ s fall new line of stencils has been so much fun to use. The versatility is incredible. For these 3 8×10 canvas panels, I used several of her stencils and they gave me the ability to create a mixed media soothing look on my project. I had so much fun.

I wanted a simple but yet beautiful look. A simple collage, using some elements that I already had, some acrylic paints, fluid acrylics, and Montana spray paints along with mod podge- and all came together nicely. You will see in this video that there was nothing complicated about this process. I’ve always believed that creativity can be simple and yet beautiful. I hope you enjoy the process and that it’s inspirational for you!

Enjoy the Video!

Products Used: 

Shawn Petite stencils: Eucalyptus Branch, Rustic Font Large, Boulder, Carved Pods, Moroccan Tile 4

In addition to that, I used: Mod Podge, Liquitex Super heavy Gesso, Basic Acrylics Gesso, a fine tip applicator, golden fluid acrylics diarylide yellow, Deco art media quinacridone magenta, Folk Art acrylic paint in Cameo Blush and Mint Aqua, and Montana Spray paints in Salmon, Montana Gold Asia, Blanc Choc, and 3 Canvas Panels 8×10

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!
