World Autism Awareness Day With May Arts!


Today, I have a simple project with a big meaning...

This picture frame features puzzle pieces and a wash of blue---both of which are used to help raise awareness for Autism.

When asked if I wanted to create a project for World Autism Awareness Day, I took it as an opportunity to learn a bit about something I knew very little about---and support our very own Ribbon Lady!!

To create the lovely texture for this picture frame, I've glued several lengths of the 4 inch Burlap/Wired Ribbon in Light Natural down with Mod Podge.  I then covered it with a layer of white paint before adding a wash of Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.

I absolutely LOVE the finished frame!
