Fiber Squiggle ACEO's

Lemon Lime Squiggles ACEO

I've just added over 15 new Squiggle ACEO's of different colors. This is my first attempt at a series. Usually, I'll create one or two pieces, so this is a first for me.

Each of these ACEO's were hand painted with Lumiere Paint on cotton muslin & then rubber stamped.

Cherry Red Squiggles, ACEO

I then added layers of irridescent Angelina Fibers, which unfortunately do not photograph well (so I enclosed a closeup so you could see them.)

Grape Squiggles, ACEO

I then added different colored metal "squiggles" as embellishments.
Dark Chocolate Squiggles, ACEO

I normally don't work in browns, so I was unsure of both brown ACEO's, but the feedback I've been receiving seems to be positive.

Milk Chocolate Squiggles, ACEO

You can find these ACEO's along with others that I have made in my Etsy shop, Squigglechick.

New Bird ACEOs in Shop

Haven't been drawing as much as I want/need/should. I don't know why I find so many excuses not too since it makes me happy.

Therefore I revisited my birdie ACEOs and made a couple of new ones which I have now put into My Etsy Shop:

17 March brings out the Irish in you!

I guess if you have a hint of Irish blood in you, or you just want to join in, today is the day! Yes, it’s St Patrick’s day which is celebrated worldwide but especially in Ireland (of course!), New Zealand and North America. It is the one day of the year when the Irish theme is paramount and everything green goes and even if you have no Irish connections you can proclaim yourself to be Irish for the day!

In the past, Saint Patrick's Day was celebrated as a religious holiday. It became a public holiday in 1903, by the Money Bank. (Ireland) Act 1903, an Act of the United Kingdom Parliament introduced by the Irish MP James O’Mara. O'Mara later introduced the law which required that pubs be closed on 17 March, a provision which was repealed only in the 1970s. Can you imagine closing an Irish pub?

Queen Elizabeth, the late Queen Mother in England, used to present bowls of shamrock flown over from Ireland to members of the Irish Guards, a regiment in the British army consisting primarily of soldiers from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland (Eire). Last year the waters in Trafalgar Fountains in London were turned green for the day. Here though let’s see what items can be found in the ACEO Street Team on Etsy!

Spring is in the air!

Since many of us a relishing the slightly (I did say, slightly!) warmer weather I wanted to share an ACEO with you! I belong to another Etsy group (Boomers and Beyond or BBEST for short) and they are having a swap for the month of March with the theme set as Spring!

So many images come to the fore don’t they? Finally, I decided on this ACEO as my entry. It is entitled ‘A Spring running down the Valley’.A spring running down the valley

Created using my favourite art medium of encaustic paint or painting with wax the ACEO has plenty of depth and detail to it. If you listen carefully you might even hear the tinkling of the spring water as it trickles down the mountain!

Now I just have to find out to whom I am to send it!

If you would like to view more ACEOs using this amazing 2000+ year old medium do visit my Etsy shop .
