With just a few colors and a single font (writ huge or tiny and without many options as to placement) my creativity is truly challenged. (if I need black or white in the drawing, for instance, I must find them in the underlying photo.) Mostly I choose blank or close-to blank backgrounds, at least so far.
My favorite limitations with this tool is time - if I start a drawing, I have to finish it promptly or else Snapchat discards it. So I make a drawing in a single sitting, place a bit of not-too-premeditated text over it, and send it out into the world.
I'm archiving these, for now anyway, in an album on Facebook.
