Please Say "Hello!" To Our Design Team

We are so excited to write this post! We never, in our wildest dreams, imagined that our (not so) little blog would be so popular. It really came about organically, just two girls who had a mutual love for Hero Arts--the products, the people and the ideals. We had no idea that so so many of you agreed with us!

We are so happy to bring you our Design Team, fellow fan girls who just happen to be talented designers as well. 

It is our pleasure to introduce you to The Chalk Inks & The Shadow Inks. 

The Chalk Inks will be bringing you the challenges that are posted on the 1st of each month and the Shadow Inks will be bringing you the challenges that are posted on the 15th of each month. Each member of the design team will also be doing an additional post each month--something fun, such as a step-by-step photo tutorial or a video. 

We've asked each member of the team to create a project saying "Hello" to you.

So without further ado, we bring you The Chalk Inks:














And The Shadow Inks: 

















We have a truly International team, which is fitting, since Linda and Mary Dawn are half a world away from each other. (Below you will find a list of products used in each team members card.)

We chose these ladies because we felt they had a great variety of strengths and styles--something to suit everyone!

We hope you will join us in welcoming them. We are SO excited to have them on the team!
