January Guest Designer - Shona Keehn

This year we welcome Guest Designers to join the team for a month!   

Our January Dusty Attic Guest Designer is Shona Keehn.

We asked Shona some get to know you questions.

Share with us a little about you, how long have you been scrapping, do you have your own dedicated workspace, where are you from?:

Hi everyone...I am so excited to be here!!! I am from beautiful British Columbia, Canada and I have been scrapping for a few years now, but really just got back into it in the past couple of years. I have a wonderful supportive hubby( he has no idea how much I spend on this hobby, hehe ) , 3 children and 4 grandchildren with another one on the way very very soon. I love to take photos of all of them and they love it too because they get most of the albums, in fact I wrapped up 5 albums as gifts just yesterday!  I have a room, my scrap room, but it is in definate need of an overhaul in there. I am lucky to squeeze in a 12x12 workspace to create on in there LOL! My new years to organise my scrappy space so that I have at least a table space to work on :) I should write Ellen to see if she will send someone to do a room makeover for me hehe :)

What are your favourite Dusty Attic pieces?:

I can not wait to get  my hands on some of the new Dusty Attic pieces, they all look so yummy! Right now I have so many go to pieces that are my favs, depending on what type of layout I am doing. LOVE all the botanicals to add to flower clusters, and of course I am addicted to the Chicken Wire :) Corner pieces to add to corners, cogs, the frames, ooo lala the frames, oh yes and all the title pieces.....hehe lets put it this way...I love them all!!!!!!! Dont you all just hate it when you run out of your fav pieces of DA...eeeeeek!

What is your favourite technique to use on Dusty Attic Chipboard?:

I do like to experiment and try the various tutorials here, to alter the pieces. My most fav quick technique is to paint the piece white, add some glimmer mists, glaze or glam, and then finish it off with Rock Candy crackle paint.

And finally, something close to most of the Dusty Team's heart - What's your favourite kind of Chocolate?:

Yummy to me is a mid day Oh Henry Chocolate bar and a delicious cup of Starbucks coffee to go with it :)
