inspired by ACEOOCTOBER

My new to me laptop died, and I suspect that Memory Ghouls and other computer bugs may be to blame. Available here.

Candy Corn Field

Ever wonder how Candy Corn is made? Wonder no more! This is a painting of the birthplace of that delicious concoction! Notice the baby plants in the background. When the blooms first appear on the stalks, the centers are baby buds of gold. Later, when the blooms become larger, the centers turn into a delicious dollop of vanilla! And now you know...

What comes from the heart goes to the heart.

I have been digging into my collection of found objects and creating another line of small art tags. Each piece is a one of a kind; collectible tag. Suitable as an upcoming Holiday ornament, bookmark, or as a gift all by itself. Going up today in my Etsy shop!

I have been creating embellished ACEOs over the last year and find my collectors like them for their affordability; in comparison to the price of full sized collage pieces. Understanding that buyers are investing in these tiny canvases I will not reduce my prices in order to retain their purchase value. I do, however, combine shipping on multiple pieces. My pieces include tiny pieces of found art objects, glass beads, charms, acid free paints and contain many (many) layers of polymer medium - items not found in most other ACEOs. Each is signed and dated. These are collectible pieces which you will want to display year round.

Each piece is a one-of-a-kind so I go all out with shipping; I know you want to receive the item in pristine condition, I mail in a protective envelope, insured - with tracking.

Block Party Press - New ACEOs and A Feature

I have been making some new paper ACEO's lately. I like to recycle and use recycled items in my work, so when I took a picture of the cardboard that I use for painting pendants for the Flickr Crafting 365 Group, I saw the potential to create a new line of ACEO's called "Leave Nothing Behind". This is the original photo that inspired them:

I decided to start painting my pendants on cardstock so that I could make them into ACEO's easier than using cardboard. Here is what I came up with:

The pink ones were featured this week on the ACEOToGo blog.

These will be going into my Etsy shop sometime this week and they are also available for trade!

Hello, I recently opened my Etsy store and quickly discovered ACEO'S. I am a doodler and
have saved them on scraps of paper, napkins, etc for years keeping them in shoe boxes.
Making ACEO'S gives me an outlet for my compulsive doodling and let's me get them out into the world instead of languashing in boxes. Yahoo! I was excited when I ran across the
ACETSY Blog and look forward to being an active member!
