Welcome to "Step by step" - a finish it workshop


Do you have a hard time finishing your work? Do you get stuck and don't know what your next step should be? Do you procrastinate when creating?

Then this workshop is for you!

I'm here to be your personal guide, step by step through this project.

To help you finish it!

We'll work through this single project from start to finish. With simple supplies and easy instructions, so that you're sure to complete it. 

And what happens when you finish your work?.... You gain courage and confidence!

In this workshop we'll go over all the supplies-- in fact you can check that out for free!

Then we'll practice.... to make sure you feel comfortable when you actually start creating.

 We'll practice with our palette knives. 

You'll get a quick and easy way to make your sketch for your project. (no drawing skills required!)

We'll even practice the best way to collage and seal your projects.

Once you feel comfortable with the practice we'll move on to creating the yummiest grungy background.

Then onto our focal point, moving seamlessly through all the stages of our project with simple step by step instruction!

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!
