Does Christmas Do This To You?

Christmas is, of course, meant to be the season of, peace, happiness, contentment...ring any bells? But often, it feels like a treadmill, and when you've struggled through the umpteenth busy shop to find that they've sold out of whatever it is that 9 year olds 'must have' this year, I'm sure you too will See Red. Unless, of course, you have the patience of a which case, the calm hovering of 'Even Angels Dream' might be more your cup of egg nog... either way, have a very happy time...

The technical details? Seeing Red is made from hand dyed tissue paper, with a piece of hand dyed Evolon and some found papers attached; Even Angels Dream is also made from hand dyed tissue, with found images and papers, and some tiny glitter stars. A bit of glitz for Christmas...available from my Etsy shop

Not Just Another FACE in the Crowd

I made my first Etsy TREASURY and did it on my favorite ACEOs to collect. Did you know that people search ACEO FACE?? All ACEOs... only for a day I think... gosh I was so nervous...all happened so fast.

By the by, I'm new here to your blog and glad to find you all! Happy Turkey Day too!

SnowFlake Fantasy

I am new to the group (hi!), so I thought I would introduce myself with my latest ACEO.

This card was inspired by the FAE (Fantasy Artists of Etsy) Street Team's Snowflake Fantasy contest. You can see some of the other entries here.

This is MY fantasy. Small dragonlings carefully guide each snowflake to its designated spot in the sky so that it will fall "just so" and at exactly the right time. This ACEO is my own interpretation of the magic in the ordinary.

It's Been...

that kind of a day. My 20ft shed/studio arrived yesterday, but the builders failed to appear today, so no shed in the back garden. Just enough to make me See Red...which is the title of this new ACEO which I've just popped into my Etsy shop. Lets hope tomorrow will be a brighter, better day...I'll be able to get better photos taken, and maybe the builders will come. A girl can hope!

you need something pretty and peaceful to look at. After all, it's only natural. And that's the name of this particular ACEO, made using lutradur on found papers, with found images and a shimmery skeleton leaf added. It's one of my favourites; it's on my etsy shop, if you'd like more details. Reminds me of summer...just as winter is coming in.

New Dragonflies ACEO

etsy Item 7671949

Three dragonflies flit through a forest of green bamboo. This feng shui landscape, from the Zen Mandala series, is an original miniature acrylic painting.

New ACEO Seller - Listing Like Crazy!

Watch the number of ACEOs in my shop expand this first week of November! This one I put up today is one of my favorites, but since I work in series with my art cards there will be four more variations listed over the next month. My first set of listings includes abstracts and landscapes.
Visit my shop and take a look!

Never Say Never...

for it will come back to haunt you!!! I said never to ACEOs, once; and now here I am, making them with gay's an obsession, you know... Oh, well. At least I'm spending time usefully and productively! And it is a good way of trying lots of different styles; the first image is made simply from lutradur, stitch and found papers.

This second image is a section of a photograph of an abstract painting, which I then altered with acrylic paints. It may be an obsession, but it's FUN! Both cards available here
