The Art of the Imperfect

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

For today’s Whatever Wednesday post, I’m sharing a video of Phil Hansen, an artist who embraced his disability and proves that creativity can be enhanced by limitations.

If you’re stuck in a creative rut, and your mojo is lacking, give yourself a challenge. Some ideas to try:

* Create a scrapbook page in a set amount of time (30 minutes, one hour).
* Design a card using a monochromatic color scheme.
* Pick three papers from separate kits and combine them into one project.

For more ideas, search online for websites and online articles devoted to papercrafting challenges.

I also really love Hansen’s videos documenting the creation of his art. Which, if you think about it, is the reason that so many people have enjoyed watching my videos on youtube and ustream. I have found that the process of creation is appealing to the viewer as much as the finished product.

Watch Phil Hansen create with karate chops:
