Winter concertina with new stencils 10-29-23
Posted Oct 29, 2023

Today I start my winter concertina, with lots of layers and new stencils that will be on sale this week!

I love creating in a concertina because it gives me so much freedom to continue my story. Watching each scene fold into the next. As I was creating each section it felt like a store window display during the holidays and I love that.

We will complete each section this week on YouTube and then the final section will be next the next Sunday Inspiration. 11-5-23

The cover along with all the videos will be in the subscriber library (which is free) and the membership.

As I created, I wanted to capture the things that I find most meaningful during this time of year. And how the coziness of the season causes me to reflect on all that I’m grateful for.

I hope you enjoy the project and create one for yourself.  Have fun watching the video and always remember how much 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!
