I like working in series, taking an idea and making several different ACEOs on that theme. My newest series is called Blue Stripe, and each card has a blue stripe (surprise surprise) somewhere in its design. The pieces are made using both watercolour paper and a layer of lutradur, which is a non woven, semi transparent polyester fabric, so that the blue stripe underneath shines through the hand dyed lutradur designs. I love working with lutradur!
The images are of the first three in this new series, and can be found here

I have totally fallen in love with the process of creating ACEOs. I have to admit that I'm still "finding my legs". My All Girl Band Series is a part of the process. I've been seeking my creative center by remembering my heart ~ my old dreams and ways I used to play. I used scraps of decorative paper, very intentionally sculpted polymer clay, and extra stuff to compose these. I did them separately, but then they suddenly reminded me of "The Pretenders" (the singing group) and memories of my dreams to be a rocker chick came flooding back. The first in this row is listed in my shop, gingerlime.etsy.com and the rest will be listed over time. Have fun ACEOers and rock on!

I had a lot of fun with this ACEO. I heated the copper after embossing it to give the surface different tones. I then added a layer of black acrylics over the ACEO and rubbed it off to highlight the peaks and valleys. It is full of texture and it is a lot of fun to touch.
Clicking on the image will take you to the listing on Etsy and you can see additional pictures including one of a side view so you can tell how much texture there is. I hope you like it.

Ever seen a fish kissing another fish?
They really exsist! They're called "Kissing Gourmies" and they are pink fish with big lips. You have to have 2 in your tank and they go up to each other and really kiss!
This was my inspiration for this ACEO "Kissing Gourmies". It's created with Prismacolor Pen, india ink and watercolor. I also used a Duochrome watercolor over the top to create a shimmering water effect!

Greetings! I am new to our street team, but I've been selling ACEO's on Etsy for a while now!
Though, winter is not quite past - it's spring in my heart so I have many spring themed ACEO's for sale in my shop!
"Daffodils" (above) is a needle felted ACEO. These are becoming very popular and I'm having a hard time keeping my store stocked with them (this one just sold)
But I also really enjoy painting with watercolor. I hope you'll come by and visit my shop and look around! The Creators Palette

I don't have any ACEO on ETSY just now, I have one up at OLA. Mostly I do oil paintings and scratchboard - but I've been known to use any medium that is at hand.
I've got larger art on ETSY, but I'm thinking that maybe I'll offer some prints.
You know about the website for ACEO - www.art-cards.org? I'm always looking for demos and articles, product reviews and the like. If you would like to write one up you get links back to your home page and wherever you like, ETSY or ebay (blah) or anywhere.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all :)

~ Here are a few~
~Mixed Media of collaged papers, stamps, paint, ink & broken mercury glass~
These wings I just picked up from Pacokeco. The only thing different about this piece is the mercury glass. I broke one of my ornaments during the holidays and I refuse to let it go to waste!
