This months OTP project is one of my favourites so far "Be thankful Layered Mini Album ", following our book of faith them "Thanksgiving". I had sooooooooooo much fun playing with different techniques and mediums for this one. Including stamping & printing on transparency, using texture medium & paint and layering with vellum & transparencies to give an interesting tactile mini album. I have actually made this album to give away but I really wanted to add pictures of things I am thankful for so have a little look at what I came up with.

This was a great reminder to me that God has given us so much and we need to show him our thankfulness, not just for the big things but also for that butterfly that just landed on your pretty flower, for the laughter of children playing and the beautiful blue sky. And as hard as it is we need to give thanks in our tough times too as we know God is with us through each and every step in our lives.

In everything give thanks 1 Thess 5:18
