Texture with paste, prints and stencils 9-25-22
Posted Sep 25, 2022

I had so much fun creating this piece. It’s the perfect amount of texture and grunge.

I use some fun gel prints (from this weeks videos) and some yummy pastels and a surprise of gold paint!. Along with some new stencils. I always love experimenting with new stencils.

I also share a real personal read from my journal and what inspired this piece.

I can’t wait to share it with you and hope you enjoy the projects. And always know that you are loved!

The original is available HERE and prints are available HERE.

Stencils used:

  1. Urban Design
  2. Grungy Doors

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!
