Course Description

Have you ever stared at a blank page or canvas wondering what the heck should I do? 

Or have wasted time searching for inspiration? 

Oh, my, gosh! I know I have! There's nothing worse than when you want to get creative, but you feel like you've got nothin! No ideas, no goal, no inspiration. 

Welp, I'm gonna help you get past that!

I'm so excited about this workshop because I share for the first time how I get out of my creative ruts.

I have developed a practice that works for me every. single. time. That sparks my imagination, gets my fingers in the paint and gets me in the flow! 

In this workshop, we dive into my secret sauce for getting the mojo flowing,  and how to create quickly by thinking only about the next get the most out of your time.  

I will guide you, in gathering all our elements together, preparing our journals with speed, creating grungy gelli prints and building amazing texture, all in an unconventional way, that I know will light the fire in your soul!

Oh, and did I mention that I help take the fear out of starting something new or working through your projects? 

It's all part of the system that I use that I can't wait to share with you.

We'll pull  it all together to create 

6 beautiful abstract projects in our journals and on canvas. Even going big on a 16 x20

****Then to make this even better I'm throwing in two bonus lessons. 

1. Creating your own journal and 

2. 10 ways you can use tissue paper in your mixed media mini workshop that is jam-packed with the best ideas for tissue! 

I've never offered such a huge bonus before!

All this for just $67.00!.

Artist/Creative Soul Shawn Petite

Well Hello There! And thank you for allowing me to join you on your creative journey! My name is Shawn Petite and I’m a mixed media artist, living my dream of creating every day. I've been teaching and creating for over 26 years in many different mediums but found my art soul mate in mixed media.  I’ve been published in several magazines, I produce my own line of stencils, and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media. But most importantly, I try every day to encourage and inspire. To show love with my paintbrush. To leave my little corner of the world a better place. One of my greatest joys is to know that I've encouraged YOU on your creative journey My favorite quote: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. " Maya Angelou Always know that you are loved!
