Collage, Anyone?

It was another fun and exciting day in the CraftFusion Workshop this past Saturday, July 19th, as Shawn Petite shared more of her magic and secrets to her unique style of creating extraordinary mixed media art pieces.  It was a packed house and at the end of the Workshop, everyone went home with their own one-of-a-kind piece of art . . . completely customized . . . as well as big smiles on their faces!  Shawn led everyone in the Workshop in all types of step-by-step techniques that they'll be able to use in many of their future projects . . . creating aging, shading, and the use of stencils, just to name a few . . . as well as how to collage with ephemera, book pages, and papers in your art pieces. Acrylic paint, charcoal, pencil, and so much more was added as finishing touches to each piece.

Check out this happy group of artists . . .

If you weren't able to make it last Saturday, you'll definitely want to make your plans now to join Shawn in her next Workshop on Saturday, August 16th.  You'll want to call early to save your spot, though, because with limited seating, you won't want to miss a minute of the fun!  Watch for more details, but check out this sneak peek . . .

And if you'd like to see more of Shawn's amazing art pieces, follow her on her blog at www.shawnpetite.com.
