How are you doing today? It's a beautiful day here.
Did you ever have those days at school where you were allowed to use glue, scissors, glitter, old greetings cards to make art?
No one breathing down your neck... ahhhh wonderful.
We all need to cherish these moments of creative expression and release from tension and worries.
Tearing, gluing, splashing inks, adding paint in colourful blocks was how I created the piece in the image above. It was an amazing process.
There is a video down below for you to watch the final layers coming together if you wish.
The relaxed state of inner peace I experience whenever I create art is a superb way to deal with anxiety and relieve stress.
Creative expressive art activities are good practice to combine with Mindful breathing exercises and journaling to calm and soothe the Soul.
Art as Therapy is the best medicine for my stress and low mood. What makes it so special, is how those who give my mindful art activity a go, tap into and experience deep inner peace and self-awareness.
Often those who are going through an overwhelming, stressful period in their lives feel they cannot make time or will be no good at creating, but you know what, time and time again we find... the less you know about art as it is taught, the better my process works.
Painting my way, Reduces Stress & Anxiety and Lifts Mood.
In my video (below) I used vibrant Pinks, Oranges, Golds, Greens, along with Sparkling media leaving me inspired and excited.
Finger painting, experimenting with inks, dripping, pouring, sprinkling glitter. I didn't want it to come to an end.
