Quick journal pages

Some days I don't have any time to sit and take two hours art journaling. Some days I only have ten minutes. When that happens I use this quick exercise to get my thoughts on the page and express myself artistically. I used a 6B pencil to write as fast as possible what I was thinking about and then I used my watercolor crayons to draw an image over the top and then painted over the crayon with a water brush. It is not meant to look perfect just to express myself in the time I had.
This page I just glued down all the stuff I picked up on my birthday. I really love pages that show my days. No one else has a page like this because they didn't do those exact things on that day, at least I don't think another art journaler was stalking me :) And if you take your journal with you and a glue stick, you can stick them down as you go.
