My last collage was for the theme of ‘YELLOW‘, then I missed a few. July’s theme is ‘STRIPES‘.

Geometrics are definite, daring and inspiring.

When I think ‘stripes’ the image in my head is of a stereotypical French person in a long-sleeved Breton top. With onions. I also think of zebras.

Keeping it strictly fashion, the centrepiece of this collage is an illustration by René Gruau. J’adore.

COLLAGE CLUB 'Stripes' collage, July 2016I think she’s chic, sophisticated and up to date on the latest trends, stripes or otherwise. And she’s a jet-setter, oh yeah.

Beirut, Buenos Aires, Shanghai, Hollywood in Cambodia…

Everything else is just, you know? BLAH.

COLLAGE CLUB 'Stripes' collage, July 2016There’s another page to this month’s collage too.

I was going to create the male counterpart to René‘s exotic, striped lady. But I never got that far.

I’m including him anyway because…striped shirt and shades.

      I definitely find collage relaxing to do – the initial ideas, looking for inspiration, ripping up paper. Love it! And yes, she does have an enviable life doesn’t she?
