Clear emboss resist technique 2

Today I am participating in the “Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness” blog hop and I’m one of the sponsors!  Raising awareness for WHAT Autism and Aspergers IS and how it shows up in different people is close to my heart.

In the video, I’ll talk about this a bit more, then I’ll make this card using the:

I love when I can stretch a card design and go from simple to still simple but adding techniques!

The card base is 4-1/4 x 11, the black layer is 4 x 5-1/4 and the white layer on top is 3-3/4 x 5.

Stamp the images, add clear embossing powder, heat, then spray water on your cardstock.  Make a color palette with Distress Inks and add color with a water brush.  It’s THAT easy!

There is a big ole blog hop going on for Light It Up Blue - click here to check it out!

What is Aspergers Syndrome?  In a nutshell, it’s basically a (big) gap between intellectual skills and social skills.  In school, the child with Aspergers sails through…grade-wise.

Socially?  Things are much harder.  Starting conversations, engaging in conversations and making friends is a challenge for a child with Aspergers.  Actually, a large social circle isn’t even what a child with Aspergers wants.  A few close friends, or even “compartmentalized” friends is much preferred (there are neighborhood friends, sports friends, school friends…and they do not cross).

A child with Aspergers may not pick up on social cues, look like s/he is engaged in a conversation, and even look like they are not having fun (when in fact, they are having a great time!).

Aspergers is a wide-spectrum disorder…meaning, there is a long list of symptoms, but those symptoms can vary widely between people.  Just because a child isn’t exhibiting all the signs and symptoms, doesn’t mean they don’t have it.

We may not even be talking about your child.  Not everyone is made the same, so the next time you see a child, teen or even an adult that is quiet, doesn’t look you in the eye, or doesn’t meet your expectations of social behaviors…they may have Autism or Aspergers.
