I am linking up with Julia over at Stamping Ground for WOYWW - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. It has been a few weeks since I played along.
This is what my desk looks like.
I have signed up to participate in The Sketchbook Project 2013.
I received my sketchbook a few months ago and it has sat on my desk in the envelope that it was mailed in ever since.
This is what I've been afraid of...the blank page.
I manifested my own fears...what if I mess it up, what if it looks awful, what if... what if...what if...
Well, if you look back at the first picture on left side there are 2 containers of gesso, one white and one black. That is my answer to all my what if fears.
So what, I'll paint over it. I have all of the fun tools to play with so I might as well just start by making the a few of the pages not blank.
By the way, if you look really close at the barcoded label on the left my name is printed on the back of my sketchbook. So fun!
I am so happy to say that I just started. I used dylusion spray inks, layered a few cardboard letters and made the page green. I have 5 pages that are no longer blank. They aren't finished but they aren't blank.
My fear is less by just simply adding a single layer of color to a few pages I made it less scary.
Now to play with all those fun art supplies that I have and create an art journal that I am going to share with the world. A few doodles, a few photographs added in here and there, some of my messages from the universe sprinkled in, and before I know it my sketchbook will be full.
I'll continue to share my progress during the next couple of months.
Do me a favor today and choose one of the things that is scary for you today and just begin. Take one step forward to making it less scary. Those 'what ifs' that live in your head are really only in your head so begin today so that you let them go. xoxo
I promise that you'll feel better and be more joyful if you just begin.
Hop over to Stamping Ground today and visit a few more desks.
