Lazy pages


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.
