Blank space and a case of the F.O.F.s

What is it about a blank piece of paper or canvas, when making that first mark or brush stroke is so frightening - nothing really - so what if I mess it up - I can chuck it or re-use it. It's not as if the 'Stash Police' are going to be after me for wasting paper..LOL Does it matter and who cares? well apparently I do, as I had another episode of the F.O.F.s again, that being - Fear Of Failure. So I gave myself a good talking to and then decided to just go for it, after all 'Art' is suppose to be fun - isn't it?
Used Kanban Stamps, SeeDs stamps
The first piece was on watercolour paper, using Kanban and SeeD's stamps. Used watercolour paints and twinkling  H2Os, white souffle pen. Yeaaah first blank space covered! Then I got a small 6" x 4" Windsor & Newton book and got to the first page - oh dear - it was a blank white page!

.....and then the first white page in that book too was gone....yipeee!

Words  stamps by Andy Skinner

SeeD's, Victory and Hero Art stamps
oh well... they're not brilliant pieces but I had fun - eventually - making them.

Have a good day and thanks for stopping by x
