A pearshaped collage

Not knowing what to start on next I decided to 'warm up' by playing in my journal!
I have quite a few pieces of paper that I have either stencilled , stamped or gelli printed so decided it was time to use some of them up - I also wanted to add some doodles. 
This is the start….
…but then I forgot to take any more photos so this is how it ended up.
I decide to add a pear stamp to my collage 'just because' this did go a little bit pear shaped! 

I am joining Art Journal Journey for Susi's 'no faces, no wings, no leaves - but collage' challenge

I was tempted to add this to Moo Mania and more but I don't think it is quite stripy enough!   

I am feeling quite a lot better although I now have a bit of a cough. Thanks for all the good wishes!
We are off farther North tomorrow as we have an exciting day on Saturday.I will wrap up warm - promise!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

OH wow. I adore how you wove the scraps together and added stars and doodles even before you added the pear. This is gorgeous.

Have a fun weekend, and get well soon. Glad you are on the mend, at least.
