Everyday Moodlings-Tim Holtz January Tag

As I shared yesterday, one of my creative goals was to complete all of the Tim Holtz tags for 2106.  This is my take on his January tag.  Read on for complete instructions.

Tim's tag was black and white, but I was soooooo not feeling that color combination.  As I have mentioned before, I often break down an inspiring piece into its components: color combination, composition, theme, techniques and supplies.  Then I pick and choose which components I use.  For this tag I used composition, theme, supplies and techniques.
