This week we’ve got a great project to share with you from one of our favourite regular featured companies Graphic 45.
Graphic 45 Designer – Solange Marques
Our Graphic 45 Guest Designer for this week is Solange Marques who is part of the 2014/2015 Graphic 45 Design Team. You can see Solange’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her.
Hi, my name is Solange Marques and I’m happy to be here at Paper Crafter’s Library today!
I live in Curitiba and I have been in love with a scrapbooking since 2004. I am married to John for over 31 years and have five children: Camila (30), Alexandre (28), Bruno (25), Gabriela (20) and Miguel (14). We also have a granddaughter: Clara (6) and one grandson, Samuel (4), they are always present in my creations.
I graduated in Architecture and Fine Arts (perhaps that explains my huge passion for paint and their constant presence in my projects. I have been working in a bank as a jewelry appraiser for 26 years.
In a scrapbook layout I love mixing techniques, mainly involving paints and textures (watercolor, acrylic paint, modeling paste and a lot of mediums). I consider myself a mixed media artist and I love the artsy style!
For my project today I created an altered clipboard. You can see some close up photos below.
– Cover the clipboard with G45 papers.
– Apply a layer of Acrylic Gesso and remove the excess using baby wipes.
– Cut out some elements of G45 ABC Primer collection and glue them on the clipboard.
– Using a brush, outline the figures shadowing them to get more depth.
