Corrie over at Stampotique designers challenge asked us to create a background that is striped, as a seriously addicted art journaler I had to create a journal background and I went for using my left overs as well.
So let’s see how many stripes I managed to push into one spread. First I coloured some tissue left overs they were actually stripes from trimming my last spread. I used bister and Lindy’s stamp gang spray.
While it was drying, I were letting some ‘stripes’ drop down on my spread with acrylic ink.
So one acrylic ink, two coloured tissue wraps, and together:
Then I stamped my image Janet Klein’s Lissi (#9187) on a 7 dots studio paper. Under my image I applied a striped scrap collage.
To break the lines I used large ringlets die from Memory box to create some circles, but they are also cut from striped scrap paper. On the other side of my spread I made another collage, using this time the loopy ring border and stamped the word ‘happiness’ only from Linda Peterson’s Rain text (#12022).
Finally I added some dimensional stripes with texture paste at the top.
So how many stripes can you count?
totally cool! I love all the ways you managed to incorporate stripes! I guess I’m a little biased because I do like stripes! 😀
Hugs from a sister in art from across the pond,
Thanks Beth! 😉
I’d say you did “stripeingly” well!
Thank you Maron! 🙂
Stripes galore, and a great spread!
Thanks Win 😉 xox
Arithmetic is not my strong suit, but I’d say you got lots and lots of stripes that work terrifically well on your great spread.
Thanks for playing along with us at Stampotique Designers Challenges!
Thanks for visiting Kathi 😀
I was full of anticipation when I saw the title of your post on my email notification and you have not disappointed me. Love the text peeking through and the contrast of the circles.
I was thinking a while on the title, I had the feeling that from striped people will associate with a zebra, but then I said you know what let them get surprised, no zebras on this page 🙂
Wow, so many stripes ! Great execution of my challenge. Thanks for taking part !
Thanks for visiting Corrie 🙂

Wonderful, although I want to re-align some of those stripes! Must be the engineer in me 🙂
Next time I will try it in a different pattern 😉
So many stripes–I love the white ones across the top!
Thanks Linda 🙂
Wooo, that is stripy – in more than one way! I love stripes – I have way too many striped T-shirts and I used them excessively in my scrapbooking days, but never thought of using them in mixed media. There’s definitely an opportunity there! Great page, Ruth!
Thanks Zsuzsa xox
