Of course I said a resounding yes. I've been blessed to have individuals with autism in my life. One of my first ever jobs was working with an autistic man, helping him succeed in his job and it was one of the most rewarding things. People with autism might find themselves facing challenges with non-verbal communication and some social interactions.
You might have heard about the spectrum within autism and that's because it's really what it is - no two people with autism will present with the same symptoms. Today is a day to celebrate individuals with autism, and I'm proud to be a part of this hop.
The color for autism awareness is blue, so I started with a watercolored blue background made with Dina Wakely Scribble Sticks.
I added to the blue with some mandalas, stamped with Distress Inks.
Next, I used a butterfly mask from STAMPlorations and painted over it with gesso.
I outlined the butterflies, created with the negative space of my mask, using a Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen, then used Scribble Sticks and water to create a hazy blue cloud around my butterflies.
I embossed a sentiment, super appropriate for this blog hop from STAMPlorations and added a little embossed butterfly.
So there's my happy blue card. I hope you'll all participate in this awesome hop and check out the rest of the talented designers. Check them out!
