New Aceo holders and frames

Well, I have been pondering lately different ways I could display my Aceo collection. And this is what I have come up with. The colourful one is a holder that can house many Aceo's at once and can be displayed as in the photo or packed away on a shelf. The white one is an interchangeable frame. The Aceo is slipped in at the top (or side - depending if your artwork is landscape or protrait) and when you feel like a change, just slip it out and replace with a new one. A set of these would look great on display. Hope you like them! Blessings to you all from NewCreatioNZ

I love it when... ACEO artist wants to help a good cause! 

Here is a fun little creation from WorldOfMoments.  100% of this purchase will go the Dockery Foundation. This is a print of her original painting called "Are You Aware?"

Here is part of her description:  This ribbon is purposefully made to be just a little bit different, just a little bit un-perfect. Because in real life, every case of autism is just as different.

Way to make a difference, Mel! 
This makes me want to think about ways I can make a difference, too.  How about you?

Featured Seller: artwatercolor

I came across this beautiful original watercolor painting titled "Color Composition" yesterday and fell in love with it. It is by EtsyACEO member artwatercolor.

I asked Anca to tell me a little bit about how she did it. "I was on a holiday when I painted this watercolor and was relaxing sketching in the garden. There are two weeks each summer when that area is full of dragonflies and it's magical. I know the subject may seem a bit cruel but the real subject is the beauty of nature, in all of its forms. I started sketching the dragonfly with a small brush and then added the spider web background to complete the composition. Then I just played with colors and textures. It took longer to complete then my other watercolor paintings, because of all the hues and details, but I'd say it was worth it."

I really like her style of painting, I really find them unique and interesting. I hope you will take a look at all of her artwork that she has for sale in her Etsy shop.

Sweet September Saturdays by Artist/Designer/Photographer Glenna Normyle

Thank you very much for inviting me to write about ACEO's and ETSY. As we pass from one season to another you can really feel it and certainly see it. This new season Fall 2009 is just starting for us here in New England. Cooler nights herald the beginning of the Fall season for us. I am also very much swayed in my creativity at this point. I have been creating ACEO's with Fall, back to school, owl, bird and Christmas themes. Some ideas for ACEO's come to me and they are so simple in design. This Hoot Owl Aceo I made was simple to make and fun. A few months ago I had ordered a package of various iron on items, beautful embellishments etc...from a fellow Etsian. When I received my order I took one look at this owl and I said to myself, very cute, unique I really would like to preserve it on aceo cardstock to share with someone else. Enjoy! It is available for sale at my shop Glenna's Garden. By visiting you can see this aceo and others I have created.

New Zealand paua shell

Also known as 'mother of pearl' or 'abelone' and probably many other names, this beautiful shell is my inspiration for my latest aceo. They come in various sizes and have a lovely shimmering appearance. This little one in the photo is from my local beach and is the smallest intact one I have found. Compare it to the size of my aceo beside it.

You can check out my shop, NewCreationz for more pictures of this paua shell aceo and others too. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them!

In the Hood!

Here is a sweet custom illustration I just finished for a client. To me, this little guy just looks like Robin Hood. I am going to do another in a fedora, a little Bogart action, he he, so we'll see what kind of actor he can be!

It is such a joy to me to share my love of animals with others and to be able to take an image and make some itty bitty fantasy of it!

I hope you enjoy this piece.
