Grungy Monday #5...

Posted by Picasa
So here is my attempt at this weeks technique, you can find out all
about it 
over on Linda's blog. This is a technique that Tim Holtz
showed on his blog back in 2008.

I actually started this on Monday and got so far then had it sitting
around trying to figure out how to finish it off. I always have an
idea of one thing that I want to use and go with that then have a
hard time trying to figure out how to add to it. For this week I
knew I wanted to use the little compass and that was my starting point.
After I did that I really had a hard time trying to figure out what
next, I found the quote and the rub-on and then was stuck. I
finally decided to add the 2 butterflies, not my usual style but I
am happy that it is done.

So what is your method when you start a new challenge or project?

Great tag, sometimes when we struggle, it's hard to see the finished product as a success - I love your theme and the way you pulled it all together.

Your tag came out great!! I didn't have an idea either, until I went through my "charms" box and found my piece...everything quickly fell in after that.
