There has been a lot of stir in the ACEO community the last couple of days. bellsakabin has started the ACEO Bounty Challenge with over 60 participants and a grand prize at the end of the challenge all of the ACEOs listed in the Bounty Challenge that haven't sold during the length of the challenge. Early today that amount totaled over $400.00 with new entries being added constantly. Certainly a worthy prize. Here is the link to the thread giving the details. http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5566696
I know that some of the Acetsy Team members (I am one) are participating. One of the challenges was create a bright colored bird and here is my entry for that challenge.
In addition to the challenge thread there are a number of treasuries featuring ACEOs at the moment. I am including the links for the ones I've found and I hope you will take a moment and check them out. Let's all click and comment and get them moving towards the front of the lists.
Now every member of Acetsy has the opportunity to promote this challenge and these treasuries to everyone that they know are interested in ACEOs. Buyers can propose a challenge to have their favorite kind of ACEO created with no real obligation to buy, artists have the opportunity to be challenged with suggestions, inspired by other works of art and supportive of each other by just commenting on the treasuries and the thread.
Let us all make this a wonderful ACEO month.
