Introducing the Beautiful Solange Marques

having beauty; having qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction to see, hear, think about, etc.; delighting the senses or mind: a beautiful page;  

When looking at Solange's work, its not hard to be impressed by the beautiful backgrounds she creates on her layouts. You need to take the time to look carefully at them. Solange uses all kinds of mediums on her work to create beautiful foundations on which she then layers all the other elements, embellishments and her photo's. Whether it's her altered art projects or her layouts, the attention to detail is just superb . I am looking forward to seeing the beautiful projects Solange creates for us this year.
Here is what Solange had to say about herself.
I am Solange Marques, and I live in Curitiba, Brazil, with my husband, João, and some of my children. I have five children:  Camila, Alexandre, Bruno, Gabriela, Miguel and two grandchildren: Clara and Samuel. They are always present in my creations.  
I am graduated in architecture and plastic arts, but I have been working in a Bank for 21 years as an appraiser of jewelry.  
I have been in love with Arts and Crafts since I was a child. I discovered Scrapbooking in 2004 and today I am totally crazy about it.  I love to use paints and texture in my layouts and I melt the photos with the background. I love mixing a lot of techniques and products in my pages such as acrylic paints, watercolor, stamps, modeling paste and acrylic gesso.    I love the artsy style!

Thanks so much for the introduction Solange and we can't wait to see more of your beautiful creativity.
