Solange Marques

"Hello, my name is Solange Marques and I so glad for more one term on Graphic 45 design team. I live in Curitiba South of Brazil. I love arts since I was children , I discovered the scrap in 2004 and then nothing could stop me. I have a big family, my husband who helps me in my journey to 31 years now and during this marvelous trip we got 5 children and 2 grandchildren and they are my principal inspiration. I’m majored in arts and architecture but I work as a jewelry appraiser  at the bank to 26 years and I hope anxiously my retirement to devote my full time for scrap. I’m in love with mixed media and my projects always there are too many mediums such as acrylic gesso, acrylic paint, spray ink, modelling paste, watercolor, oil pastel ,panpastel,beeswax and many others textures. I consider myself a mixed media artist and I love artsy style." ~Solange

"I am in love with mixed media and I always use a lot of mediums and techniques on my projects, such as layouts, altereds, cards and something that I do. Then, I thought that  would be great share a project where I can use all that I love : an art journal. I am going to start a monthly series about art journal and this month I prepared a cover for my art journal. I did a tutorial on Snapguide. I hope you enjoy it!" ~Solange
