The October Challenge was to use stripes in a way that you hadn't before. Everyone really took this challenge in different directions.
I actually had "garbage can inspiration" after my original idea for using my striped paper didn't work out. I offset the stripes slightly to create playful visual movement. Secretly, I think I might have remembered the design idea from The Flash comic books I used to read. As soon as I saw the stripes like this, I knew what pictures I wanted to use... also containing a lot of movement!
