Light It Up Blue- by Wendy Smith

Hi Wendy  here again, showing you a layout that has a very special place in my heart.

My Son Charlie has Asperger’s Syndrome, and these photos were taken at our first ever ‘LIGHT IT UP BLUE’ Autism Awareness Event. I am very lucky that Charlie is high functioning and fairly bright, he just has trouble processing the world in the same way you or I would. I was once told that having autism is like being a Mac in a PC world.. and I think that is a pretty cool analogy seeing as he is totally technology mad!

Anyway, enough about the pictures… let’s get stuck into the embellies used on the page.

Firstly, I misted the Wood Veneer Frame with some Prima mists, and I layered to Bitty Bags - Rainbow - Polka Dot and Chevron Bags - Light Blue to create my base. I find it really easy creating layouts without too much patterned paper when I use the bags as my papers.


I coloured the chipboard Pack – Stars in black, and added white pen detailing on them, and used the Muslin - Navy


Then I added all the other little bits and pieces listed below throughout the page.
