Colorful Doodle Backgrounds

I really got into making these backgrounds from Paivi's directions on her blog, they looked like so much fun to do.  The backgrounds start with a layer of random watercolor painting then adding lots of different pens and colors in many different layers.  When I made my first one I was hooked and couldn't stop making them.  I tried different doodles for my each of my four different backgrounds.  I found the doodling part so relaxing...I would just zone out while doing the doodling.  Below are two art journal pages I made using the backgrounds.

Nice doodle work and I really like the way you put them together with your lettering in the journal. Great use of color too!
