I’m fast coming a fan of lazy pages in my art journals. By that I means ones that take very little doing but I find myself going back again and again to look at them.
This one is from my Florida journal. The background is super simple – it’s a mop up from another stencil spraying session with a few extra spots on top. The flower centres are made from off cuts of sticky-back canvas that had been sprayed with color wash. I simple cut them out and plopped them on the page without thinking. See lazy as can be.
The leaves, grass and doodles around the flowers (not that I knew that’s what they’d be when I stuck the circles in) were all drawn with water-soluble pencils and coloured with inktense pencils. Add journalling and ta-dah. Finished. Took me all of ten minutes to drag this one together, but I love it. Guess that’s what counts in the end.
Right, I’m now off for a lazy dinner. The man of the house has been slaving over an Indian (meal not person – should you be wondering…) for a couple of hours and I am about to devour it. Delicious and lazy, for me anyway, not for him though.
