“Create Beautiful Moments” 10×10 Canvas with CT Member Melisa Waldorf- Paperlicious Designs
Posted Nov 11, 2020

Hello art friends,  I’m excited to be back with you and share this colorful 10×10 canvas. The inspiration for this piece was the colors I have in a section of my studio. 

I am working on creating art to display in my studio.  It was so easy to create a colorful mixed media style background using Shawn’s stencils.  I love the illusion of texture you can create with the stencils.  Hope you’re inspired!  Melisa – Paperlicious Designs

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!
