Doing what’s easy for inspiration 8-21-22
Posted Aug 21, 2022

Doing the easy thing and doing what you love so you don’t overthink things, is sometimes the best way to create.

Especially when things are busy and we need some quiet head space.

This week as we came through birthday week, (which was awesome THANK YOU!) I started thinking about what to create and really honestly had no idea.

So I went back to some of my tried and true ways, which I’ll share all about in the video…. And this sweet, yet simple journal page came to life.

I hope you enjoy the project!

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!
