I love the soft look of White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Whisper White Cardstock.  When you emboss the outlines of an image, it makes the water coloring so quick and easy!  I had originally intended to NOT fussy cut out the embossed images, but then I added an element that I didn’t like…and the easiest way to get rid of it with my trusty Paper Snips!

World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop! Labeler Alphabet by Stampin' Up! helps to easily customize sentiments #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

Today a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are participating in a blog hop to help bring awareness to Autism.

What is Autism? Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. ASD is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a “spectrum condition” that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and early diagnosis/intervention and access to appropriate services/supports lead to significantly improved outcomes.  This description and more about Autism can be found here:  http://www.autism-society.org/what-is/

I love coloring with Aqua Painters! You don’t have to be perfect with them.  Just remember, when using Aqua Painters, to wet the paper a tad before adding color.  This keeps the color from soaking in immediately and causing ugly dark spots.

Notice the “R” is slightly different than the rest of the letters?  I accidentally misplaced the R that matches the rest of the letters, but the nice thing about this set is that is still works and looks good by mixing the different types of letters together.

I found this puzzle piece with a google search and printed it at 15% of its original size.  I then glued it to a piece of thin cardboard and cut it out with scissors to create my template.  I traced it with a pencil onto Watercolor Paper, adjusting the pieces to make them look a tad different.
