Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Let Your Art Go Beyond The Limits You Have Set For It!One of the struggles that I face as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the sense that I need to always be creating cards with the latest and greatest products we sell. I realize that this is a limit that I have put on myself and I am ready to go beyond this limit!!!!! So today I am sharing with you a project that uses very few current Stampin' Up! products and a whole lot of other miscellaneous craft and art supplies that I had in the craft room. What a freeing experience!!!!!!!! I am contemplating spending the rest of the week focusing on creating art that goes beyond the limits I have set for myself. This may mean that I won't always be posting finished art pieces for you, since creating beyond my limits means allowing for art projects that don't happen in 10-30 minutes - they may take days or weeks...or, gasp!, even months! :) What limits can you go beyond in your own art work????
So, what Stampin' Up! products did I use? You can probably find the Staz-On ink used with the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers stamp set on fabric. You can also see some old retired SU! sets hidden in there as well (look at the dresses on the angels). Ooh - do you see the Baroque Motifs stamp? And then there were all kinds of other art/craft supplies: chipboard, bottle caps, rhinestones, fabric sprayed with SU! inks, alcohol inks, beads, Crystal Effects, paint, old book pages, a mirror and yes, some SU! card stock. This mirror is by the back door of the house so that I can see it every time I head outside - a reminder to live in this very moment. Maybe I need to make a second mirror to remind myself to continue to go beyond the limits I have set for myself in my art making! :)
