Please welcome our February guest ...

Heather McMahon with her gorgeous take on our challenge this month.

“I was really inspired by the stunning colours and the spray-type effect of the background on the painting so I used Colour Crush, a soon-to-be-released product from Tinby Designs, to achieve a similar effect. My title and subject matter came from the feathers in the painting. My daughter and her bestie look nothing like each other but their personalities are so similar! All the paint I used was white – I stencilled with it, used it behind some of my Colour Crush and I used a white paint pen on my chippie feathers.”

I have been scrapping for more years now than I want to think about! Colour is my passion and I love using it in various ways to reflect the feel of the photos I use. I have been a Scrapbooking Memories Master, I write articles for magazines and am on a number of Design Teams including The Dusty Attic, Scrappy Chat Designs and Tinby Designs and am one of the founders of the More Than Words online challenge. I love sharing new ideas and playing with products and I’m delighted to be a Guest Designer here at ARTastic!

Here are some more recent examples of my work.

Thank you for joining us this month Heather.  We have loved having you part of the team.
