New Beginnings

Hi Everybody!
Happy New Year to you all!

Today we are beginning a new challenge here and the
lovely and talented Wilma is hosting.

I am posting the challenge a day earlier this time to
welcome in the new year!
But now, over to Wilma:

'Happy New Year to all... I feel very excited to be starting off another year of Tag Tuesday. It's a time of new beginnings, reflection on the past, looking forward and counting our blessings.  My intention was to present a series of tags for display. This didn't quite work out with so much happening in our household during the festive season.

So, for my only tag so far for this theme, I used an old broken zipper to  reveal something different from the background. This comparison between the two sections of the tag signifies the beginning of a new year... as if brightness and happiness are bursting forth. Some snippets of the past are still visible and to be remembered, but the future is looking promising  - to enjoy!

 I used no special techniques for this tag - just various papers cut into strips or torn and pasted down onto a luggage tag. I printed out the 'years' on an inkjet printer and some of the background is made from sticky tape transfers of newspaper. The tag is finished off with a gold ribbon hanger.
 I wish you all a creative, positive and happy year and I am looking forward to all your beautiful tags this fortnight. '

The challenge will run for 2 weeks, as always, and the next challenge
will start on Tuesday in 2 weeks.

Happy 2018 to you and yours!
