I had a hard time focusing this week and getting my inspiration to create. I’ve been finishing up some big projects that needed to be done, but outside of that I just couldn’t land on anything to create for Sunday.

I work hard all the time to calm my anxiety, but sometimes when it feels like there are so many things to do and happening around me, I just need to be in the moment and get quiet.

Today as I approached my journal…. I felt a little lost for what to do, so I did what I do when that happens. I asked myself what do I need today, what do I need in this moment.

As soon as I do that I can focus on just one thing and put one layer of paint at a time until I have direction and that’s exactly what I did today.

I’ll share more about it in the video. I hope you enjoy this playful and super easy journal page and maybe it will give you some inspiration. Have fun watching!

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!
