“Mixed Media Mini Valentine’s Day Art Journal” by CT Member Shemi Dixon
Posted Feb 10, 2021

I really enjoy reading. I  also enjoy writing down quotes from my reading to incorporate into my art later.

I wanted to create a cute little booklet/ mini Journal filled with quotes about love I’ve been collecting over the past few months. This is such a fun and easy project especially to celebrate Valentine’s Day. 

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!
