Keep fit for AJJ

A hybrid, mixed media page for
for Susi's,,,,,,,,, Collage theme and the twist of not to using , faces, wings or leaves.
[I hope I have managed to blank out all the facial features]

This is the base journal page, layers of paper scraps,
some texture added through a stencil, randomly painted with a light colour wash using acrylic paint.

With this saved as a photo, I was able to give it a digital colour change and add some collaged images.

As a family we enjoy cycling. 
 OH and myself watch it on TV these days, but we have been lucky to see some of the Tour de France stages live
 over the years.
So my page is for all the cyclists including our sons, who get  on their bikes, enjoy  being out doors and pedal many miles 
for pleasure as well as keeping fit.

Thank you Valerie for the prompt.

I will join in at Moo Mania and More where the theme is

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.

Digital additions from
Mischief Circus kits
and my own stored images.
