Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Out of limitation comes limitlessness!
I travel with a little zippered bag filled with a variety of pens, a blunt-end scissor, a glue stick, some 2" x 2" watercolor paper squares and some rolls of washi tape. It's a limited mix of supplies and I tend to supplement with bits of paper ephemera I pick up during my trips (ticket stubs, receipts, wrappers). I have had the same few rolls of washi tape in the bag for about a month now and I was just thinking about switching out the colors - which I might very well do...and, at the same time, limiting myself to the supplies I currently have in my little zippered pouch is allowing me to realize how limitless having limitations can be! Even though I keep working with the same supplies, those same supplies continue to lead me in different directions! This collage has quite a few built up layers - tape on tape on tape. Doodles on doodles on doodles. Quite different from the small landscape I made with the same supplies just a few days ago. Yes, out of limitation comes limitless. Maybe that will be my next challenge...to limit myself to a few supplies and see what I can do with just those supplies in a week...a month...or possibly longer!
