Last week’s challenge from the Art to the 5th folks was to chronicle a week of gratitude. It was a good week for me to do that, not because I was feeling thankful but because I wasn’t, particularly. Things were just hard, and I was a little too wrapped up in my own hard emotions to notice the good stuff all around me. So it helped to be pushed to look a little harder.
In my planner I started by mixing some paint and glazing medium for a bright background. I used a lot of simple stamps and some rub-ons. I like how it all came out. And it is always a good thing to stop and say thank you to my Savior for his abundant goodness to me, even in (especially in) the hard weeks.
