Weekly Challenge #24-Stripes-My attempt

I took some liberties with Laura Harms' challenge to do stripes.  My stripes were done in my pattern 'Slalom', and then I striped the stripes, and turned the circles in Slalom into bubbles--'cause bubbles are cool.  Turning the page, I striped the bleedthrumanade.

I forgot to scan in the color before I tangled, but I think it's fairly obvious what the color was like.
