Mixed media floral triptych

I think I’m in love with these new flower mask stencils! There are so many possibilities!! I think you’ll probably be seeing these a lot!

Today I made a triptych or created a mini series, with yummy layers, lots of vintage papers, a little spray paint, and a lot of meaning.

I share in the video some helpful tips when planning your background papers and then I go to town with layers of colors and a little bit of gold! Yes, please!

I also share a new book that I got that gave me some things to think about and my inspiration for these cuties.

I hope you enjoy the video, check out the new stencils in the shop, get inspired, and have fun!



These originals are available HERE and the Prints HERE

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!

    Oh I so love love love this project and the stunning results you have achieved!!!! I was looking for an idea for my handmade mask developed from my own photograph of a poppy in my garden. I decided to make my own collage papers and stenciled tissue papers. Thank you so much for this wonderful inspiring project! My favorite so far!
