I thought I would just do a quick video today of a watercolor project for Autism Awareness Day. My good friends Christine, Katherine and Michelle all have children with autism, and I love how people have rallied around the Light It Up Blue campaign today, so I thought I'd add to that in some small way.

I used my Brusho powdered watercolors, some Stampin' Up! watercolor paper (cold press), and a beautiful retired stamp set - Stipple Rose - I bought from my friend Holly last week - I've looked for this stamp forever and I love it. Thank you Holly!

Pin It

I left a sentiment off, because autism speaks :).

Here's the video if you have a few minutes. Pardon the ballcap - it's 80 degrees and sunny and I needed a stomp before arting.

  1. Wow this is gorgeous! Fantastic job!!! ♥
