“I Love me” heart Journal Page by CT Member Afia Choudhury

Hello everyone. I am here with another video for Shawn Petite’s Creative Team 2020/2021.

Amidst my recent reflections, the question, ‘Who do I love the most?’ came to my mind.

It suddenly dawned on me that it was myself. Me. I. Why shouldn’t it be?

Most of the time we mention loved ones, friends, or our significant half. But how often do we declare our self-love? Maybe not as often. So it occurred to me to do today’s page focused on just that, using all the mixed media elements that ‘I’ love, dedicating the page ‘to me’ and hopefully a beautiful and gentle reminder to you all. Don’t forget to love yourself.

Sharing lots of crafty love.

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!
