New Page and a Story Recap

So I've really gotten into my Lizzie and Wally story and have had a blast making the pages.  So much fun in fact that I have gone back and spruced up my first few pages (gave them a little more mixed media feel) and have decided that when I am done I am going to bind them all into a separate little book.
I also want to thank everyone who has gotten into the story and have left me such nice comments.
Since some people missed the early pages of this story,  today I will give you  a little recap in order so far and then show you the next page in the story.

These are the pages so far. Now the next page.
After not finding Wally at the Eiffel Tower, where she obviously thought she would see him, Lizzie decides to tour Europe.  Is she searching for Wally in hopes of finding him, or just doing a grand tour? 

I used  Gelli printed background and then stenciled these vehicles in black. I haven't bought many stencils recently since I have a stack but I just loved this one. Then I painted the names of the cities and outlined them in a black Stabilo pencil and a red Sharpie. 
And the exciting thing was I found this old roll of paper tape I had that is postage stamps! It is always dun to find something you forgot you had but when it works on a project you are involved in, it is even a better find.
I stamped Lizzie's face (B Line Designs), colored and fussy cut her out, and added this die cut wings.
I am linking this page like all the others here have been to Art Journal Journey, which is being hosted by Valerie and Susi this month. The theme is mail, the post and postage stamps.
That's all for me today.
Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone is having a great day so far.
