I started by stamping my brand new Paperartsy stamps on the spread with the idea of filling them with doodles, a bit like Debs Wainwright on the first theme post on the Paperartsy blog. But after doodling a bit on the womans collar I started seeing all sorts of lines and patterns in the images that called to be stretched and continued, so of I went on a detour. The stamps are from the "Everything Art" series, I found them in a dutch webshop. Here are some photos of how the stamped images grew together.

Enjoy the detours
The third page in my art journal this year... hopefully summertime will give me a bit more time for this, but luckily there are challenges that make me squeeze the time. Besides, this was a quick one :) I'm posting for Art Journal Journey (Journeys) and the Paperartsy challenge (Doodles and scribbles). These were a lovely pair to combine!
My original plan was to fill the whole page and add colour too, but I ended up being happy with the white space. At least this is completely different from my usual textured and inky/painty pages :) I started with clean neat lines, and they turned grungier as the page grew. I especially enjoyed the narrow vertical lines, they will certainly be revisited! Here are some closeups.
