Striped Background Toned Down

The other day I was thinking that my backgrounds in my art journal were all starting to look the same...maybe vertical stripes would be fun and a bit different.  I picked a few bright colors and painted away.  When they dried they looked entirely too bright...what to do?

A wash of watered down ink was just what I needed to tone down these bright, garish stripes.  I used a really watered down wash of purple ink and now the colors are still bright, but not obnoxious.  Not sure what I'm going to do next, maybe just writing along the stripes...who knows?
