Translucent layers, soft edges and new stencils 9-19-21
Posted Sep 19, 2021

This was so relaxing to create. I wanted to create some loose translucent – transparent layers and it happened just the way I wanted. LOVE it when that happens!

This piece is a perfect reflection of what I’m longing for right now…. softness, peacefulness, with lots of graceful reflections.

Soft edges with lovely layers and a sense of quiet…. yes, please!

I made this with the fun rice paper images I created with the new stencils in the shop.

If you haven’t seen that video you can see it HERE.

I hope you enjoy today’s project and that it leads you on a peaceful journey AND I hope that you know that you are loved!!

All the new stencils are available 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!

    Hi , I am loving this rice paper video I love it…
    I am trying to purchase some of the nice stencils. I see you have a nice promo code.
    Septstencils15. It is not working ? I want to buy these. Could you fix it. Or take it off my purchase? I would hate to lose out.
