"Advanced Doodling" - Sketchbook Delight II

One of the lessons I was particularly excited about in Alisa Burke's Sketchbook Delight II class is the one on Advanced Doodling.  She is a master of doodling - look at what she did in her hallway!!  One of my favorite art journal pages is one that I tried to imitate her style.
My doodle is based on a fabulous batik stamp that I got several years ago in Seattle at Pike's Market.  It lives on a stand in my kitchen.  Roni has been after me to ink this stamp but I can't bear to do it so I did the next best thing by basing my doodle on it.
Watercolored in the earthy colors that I love but more vibrant than usual.  LOVE how this turned out!

What a gorgeous page! And that stamp is fabulous! You did a great job of recreating the motif!

Wow...both your doodle and the stamp it was based on are beautiful. What a great find and I don't blame you for not wanting to ink it up but it would make a fantastic stamp!
