I am an self-proclaimed advocate for Blank Canvas Syndrome (BCS). I was once like you may be, not wanting to admit that a blank canvas is a scary thing. So crisp, so clean, so untouched. For me personally, I have found that BCS is overcome, once we begin to embrace that crispness and in turn embrace that we WILL make it better with our own ideas. The blank canvas is better because of us, the creative souls who put it out there! Those who ruin the crispness! No not all are masterpieces, not all are worthy of the light of day. I often tell myself that with each blank page, each blank canvas I ruin, I am moving one step closer to something awesome!
Now that I have that off my chest, here are some journal pages I wanted to share with you!
Background colors; orange and pink. I cut out words from magazines, mixed them up and put short phrases together that somewhat made sense!
1726, this was the ticket stub from getting my car worked on a few days ago. Background colors; pink, white and a little yellow and green.
I believe in me. I do, I really really do! Don't you believe in you too?
Blue and Green pages. Abstract. This is also a journal for leftover paint and then I try to create different designs from the paint patches.
All pages were created with these materials; acrylic paints, colored pencils, sharpies, scrap paper, and cut out magazine pages.
