Course Description

Let's take a walk through what's most important.... "Home" our "Shelter" from the storm.

In this workshop we'll find meaningful papers and collage elements to create a cozy feeling of home. 

And you'll create your own beautiful story of what shelter means to you.

Creating three projects that reflect the depth and whimsy of our everyday lives.

  1. I will guide you using simple supplies to create rustic and grungy goodness in our projects and also some unexpected fun.
  2. I'll walk you through step by step instructions, that also allows you to make your own version of "shelter"
  3. I provide you with over 30 collage sheets of vintage papers AND we'll also create our own fun papers.

Together we'll learn about composition, shading, acrylic inks, collage, printing on tissue paper, creating texture and even a bit of hand sewing.

Let's paste and cut and just play together and infuse our stories into our projects


Over 20 videos with almost 7 hours of instruction.

Artist/Creative Soul

Shawn Petite

Well Hello There! 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!
