New inspiration and rest 3-12-23
Posted Mar 12, 2023

Last week we did a quick trip to the beach for our anniversary and for some rest. It’s been a busy season for both myself and the hubs and it was good to just do nothing for a few days.

This week, I wanted to capture that time while also using a different book that I have for inspiration. This is another book that I just sit and ooh and awe over, just for the layout of the book. It’s called Etc. by Sibella Court.

I took a couple of the pages and put them together to remember my time at the beach and to remember the goal I set for myself this year to be curious…. and that’s just what I’m doing in today’s project.

I hope you enjoy the video. Always know that you are loved!

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!
