I've kept sketchbooks and journals blank for years because I didn't want to ruin the perfect pages.  I have a lot of anxiety about not being able to undo what I put on the paper.  I'm working at getting over that, so here is one of the first drawings in my sketchbook; a red fox done in colored pencil.

I also, have trouble deciding what will work on the adjacent page.  Here I put song lyrics from Born Ruffians.  "And I know foxes mate for life because they are in love"

There's also that fear of sharing my drawings.  Cheers to art as therapy!  Wink

How lovely!  I totally understand that fear.  I'm just as bad about regular, lined notebooks as I am about sketchbooks.  I love buying them, but I feel like they need to have a distinct and worthy purpose before I start writing in them.  Cheers, indeed!  Smiley

It's beautiful!! I love how both pages work together.

And I understand your fear of ruining sketchbooks! I used to have the same problem until I untaught myself that. I made a pact with myself that I could never sketch in anything that could be erased and I could never rip out a page. I learned a lot from this. I learned that even though something may LOOK ruined, it isn't and you can turn it into something beautiful if you keep at it and to trust myself!

keep drawing. It's really beautiful!

i've had the same anxiety for years also. i've only been able to draw a few things in so many years. luckily i found a muse last december and have been able to draw and share my drawings like i did when i was a kid. i'm only annoyed that since i didn't draw in so many years, my skill-level is the same as when i was a teenager.. but, thanks for sharing and you have nothing to be ashamed of! just keep on drawing!
