Autistic Artist

Autistic Artist

This tutorial was written by Jenny on Oct 6,2008. Resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional. I am using the wonderful artwork of Lacy Clagg. You need a license to use her artwork. I have a license for this tube through Artistic Minds Inc. You can now purchase her tubes at Creative Design Outlet.

This tut is dedicated to each and every person touched by autism. God Bless you all!

*please note that my tutorials are not to be sold,copied or profited from in any way.

Supplies Needed:

Autism Awareness tube by Lacy
Autism Awareness Scrapkit (by Nightbird Enchanted, you can download from her blog HERE)

Right click on that layer ,properties, drop the opacity down a little so that you can see the wrinkles in the paper through your image now.
If you have Eye Candy then now is when you will need to add the swirl (if you don't then just skip this step).
