Born to be wild!

Hi everyone! The background here made by using Distress Oxides hadn't turned out so good and had been waiting to be rescued!
I added some turquoise paint through a stencil and added some paper from my spray box - I don't recall how the tree shape got there! I added the other part of the visiting card I use on Starry Night and then came across a receipt from 2015 with a couple of magazines we had bought while up at at our caravan so I just tore that out before throwing it away, then there was a piece of practice stamping with a Seth Apter stamp, a tiny piece of Italian chocolate wrapper and a leftover stamped leaf.
Finally a fancy quote from a set that I seem to have parted from its packaging! 
I am quite pleased with my rescue page! It reminds me of some of the walks we take.

I am linking to Alison's theme at Art Journal Journey - Recycle and Collage

Thanks for looking, Chris

WOW, you have taken collage to an entirely new and impressive level. I so enjoyed this page. Pops of color interspersed with neutrals made this a favorite in my world. I'm delighted you shared this with us today at Art Journal Journey, dear Chris.

Happy start of the weekend!

Love this Chris and the colours you have chosen go together so well. As an ex-motor-biker the words drew me in straightaway.

Have a great weekend

Love Chrissie xx
