A stripy collage

I do love playing in my journals and this time I am joining Moo Mania and more with my Stripes collage which of course will also be heading to Art Journal Journey for Susi's 'No faces, no wings, no leaves - but collage' challenge

The photo of the stripy houses we saw in Troyes on our visit to France last year is mounted onto stripy corrugated card. The background already had some Seth Apter stencilling/stamping on it. 
I added some "very old' (as in - don't know where from!) barcode and stripy circle stamps. I added lots of stripy scraps too!

We are off to the WOYWW crop on Thursday morning so I would like to wish all my friends celebrating Thanksgiving the best of days!

Looking forward to seeing folk at the crop - I will take photos of course….but I bet Helen takes more!!!

  Thanks for looking , Chris

Gorgeous collage journal page. I love it, especially the bar codes, and the corrugated cardboard.

Have fun at the crop. I will live vicariously through yours and Helen's photos.

Lovely page and the houses are perfect for the stripe theme - such a lovely memory from last year's holiday! Have a great weekend! J :-0

What a wonderful piece! Stripes all over the page, and the sepia color of the photo is fabulous - it makes it look very antique, and all fits perfect together!
