Mixed Media Art prompt cards by CT Member Shemi Dixon
Posted Apr 14, 2021

Prompt cards are such an easy way to play in your art journal without pressure. Every time I use prompt cards I come up with a page that I would have never thought of.  Let’s make a quick and easy set together. All you need is  paper, paint,  beautiful stencils and you can create your own set of mixed media art prompt cards 

Here are some  of the prompts  I used in my set:

 add a splitter, add paint, add a stencil, Stamping, add collage, finger paint,  Draw Something, add marks with pens and markers, Doodle.

Some tips for coming up with your own art prompt cards:  go through your supplies and definitely include your favorite techniques and supplies. Happy Creating! 

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!

    These are great, I have made so many prompt cards, and still don’t use them when I need them ha ha. You’ve reminded me to get them out and play. Thank you
