Breathing Exercises, Wanderlust and... lucky winner!

Hi, everyone!
Today I'd like to show you a couple of my art journal pages that I created during one of my journal classes.
You need to know they were not the main subject of the workshop. They were made quite quickly, without too much planning or pondering.
The whole point is to take a breath, clear your head, move your hands.
A kind of warm-up if you please. ;)



I often do this creative exercise, not just during classes but also for myself.
This is not just a warm up to create something 'more important', no such thing!
These pages are just as important as more complex pieces. They are like breathing...



As you can see, these pages don't need many materials, just some paint, crayons or inks and some collage elements, that's it.
They are super simple but for me they are very powerful with all the meanings and emotions in between the shapes and splashes of color.

I hope you like my 'breathing exercises' and feel tempted to move your hands on the page....

Before I go, 2 more things I need to tell you.
