My Kind of Exercise - Creative Warm Ups

‘Eighty percent of success is showing up.’ 
- Woody Allen
I signed up for the Creative Jump Start Summit. In the first daily video Dina Wakley talked about doing creative warm ups. Background pages and index cards are some ways I warm up or get in some creative time even if I'm feeling too distracted or uninspired. Right now I have a big list of projects I want to continue to work on but still some creative stretches never hurt. 

I spent some time warming up and making use of the last of the pressed leaves from this Fall. I like the way the colors of the crayons act as a resist for further paint applied to these backgrounds. 

What are your favorite ways to warm up your creativity?
