I've always thought, just because you can do something doesn't mean that you should do it. When it comes to creativity, rules are meant to be broken. Don't allow yourself to become trapped by the creative opinions of others or even yourself. My Mom always likes me to come home and make her something for her table. I made a trip to hobby lobby to gather what i would need. Then I made a trip to the back yard and foraged what i could. I’ve become really good at using whatever i can find, I’m really pleased at how this came out.
If you’re going to break the rules, It's good to actually know the rules that you’re breaking. A fantastic foundation is always a good place to start. Be intentional, Be resourceful and more importantly Be yourself.
