I’m Megan Farrow AKA Flergs, I come from a small town in Country Victoria, Australia. I have 2 beautiful kids, Deacon 8 and Kaylee 4. I was a hairdresser for many years but recently cut back to be a mum and design. I always wanted to do something with Graphics and finally found my passion! I really truly love my job. I would design 24 hours a day if possible. But, as it is I only get 4-5 hours at night once my babies are in bed.
I’m a hopeless scrapper so my design tip is, design for fun. Design because you love what you create and enjoy doing it. if you do it hoping for a quick buck it will become boring and a chore and will reflect in your designs. A kit will pretty much make itself as your ideas & creativity flows.
I started as a paper scrapper for years, then once I found digital I never touched paper again. I wasn’t a scrapper for long, I’ve been a designer for longer. I enjoy it more than scrapping, I just love to create. I just started to make things for my pages, then some blog freebies, then started selling. And I started off making actions, but soon became a kit designer.
I get a lot of inspiration from movies, fabric & childrens clothing. I can usually create a whole collection from one piece of fabric or one of Kaylee’s tshirts. Once I start I usually overflow with ideas. I don’t have any unfinished projects, I always recycle anything that I get stuck on. Searching ETSY for fabrics usually is where I get my best inspiration.
I hate MAC’s, I am a PC girl through & through. I have a nice big 24″ screen. I run Windows 7 64 bit, and have a quad core CPU with 4GB RAM. 4 Hard Drives totaling 1.5 Tb and a 1Tb external drive.
I love my Canoscan 8800F, I have a Medion tablet from Aldi for $50 that I love! Cheap but not nasty. I can’t live without my songs while I work either so my iPod is a must have. I listen to some crazy playlist while I work!
I use CS5, Illustrator, Art Rage mostly. I have a Canon, but I’m a terrible photographer.
I can’t really say what that would be. I change my mind a lot. Love my Twilight kits of course, I’m a sucker for boy kits so I probably would say Denim Blues, Helter Skelter or 6k74. I like to use grungy & dirty type papers & elements. Something I always did when I paper scrapped was dirty everything up, because my son always seemed a mess!
Would be my Twilight inspired kits for sure! All 3 are always very popular. Also some of my Designer Tools like the Alpha Maker, something I cannot live without.
