Beautiful Collages . . .

It was another fun . . . and maybe just a little messy . . . day in the CraftFusion Workshop this past Saturday, August 16th, as Shawn Petite shared more of her magic and secrets to her unique style of creating extraordinary mixed media art pieces.  Each of those in the Workshop went home with their own one-of-a-kind piece of art . . . completely customized . . . as well as big smiles on their faces!  Shawn guided everyone who was in the Workshop in all types of step-by-step techniques that they'll now be able to use in many of their future projects . . . creating aging, shading, and the use of stencils and stamps, just to name a few . . . as well as how to collage with ephemera, book pages, and papers. She also shared the importance of added finishes touches by using acrylic paints, charcoal, pencil, and so much more.

Check out the smiles on 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, November 15th.  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 as they become available.  If you'd like to see more of Shawn's amazing art, follow her on her blog at www.shawnpetite.com.

Here's just a few scenes from last Saturday's Workshop . . .
