"Nine Christmas Santa Elves"

Over the past several days I have enjoyed the pleasure of creating nine ACEO Christmas Elves, each has their own unique personality and derive joy from their chosen Christmas profession and helping to spread happiness throughout the Holiday Season. As I was looking at these nine charming little individuals, I thought "Wouldn't it be delightful if I could combine them all on one page?!" and so, with help of my handy dandy scanner, I created a unique art print and use of ACEO's complete with all nine Christmas Elves! 

This charming authorized art print is made on an ink jet printer using 140 pound weight white acid free card stock, size 8-1/2" x 11". The print size is a non-standard 7" x 10", and the individual elves images are slightly smaller than the regulation ACEO size of 2.5"x3.5". But for those of you who would like all nine elves, this is a unique way to do so. Besides being able to frame the entire print, one can cut them apart and use them in a variety of creative ways.

You can find the "Nine Christmas Santa Elves"  for sale in My Etsy Shop as an authorized art print.


Merry Christmas Everyone!

A Tip for Framing ACEOs

Here's a great way to frame up a few little ACEOs.

Mat and frame them into individual 8x10 inch mats and hang them on a wall in groups.

These simple black frames give my dew drop series a cool contemporary look.

My dew drop ACEOs can be found in my Squier Etsy Shop.

Eureka! "The Letters E & U" ....

EUreka!  With the completion of "The Letter E" and "The Letter U" I have finished "The Alphabet Series"!

I began my quest to complete a zentangle alphabet series on 9/18/2010 and finished this project on 11/21/2010.  One letter takes approximately 2 to 3 days to complete.  Many a day I would wake around 6AM and be so drawn to the letter I was illustrating that I would work on it until 5 or 6PM that evening.  Each letter has been lovingly drawn using India Ink on plain white paper, then carefully cut out.  After which I painted a water color background and applied the completed letter to the dried water color.  

I have listed the letters "E" and "U" in My Etsy Shop available with color backgrounds and plain white backgrounds as authorized art prints (8"x10") and Open Edition ACEO's (2.5"x3.5").  

So, with no further ado, I happily share with you ....



Happy Day!

Nanowrimo or bust!

Ink leaves on watercolor I

This piece is India Ink on a watercolor background.

So, about Nanowrimo: I'm writing a novel this month..or trying anyway. Tomorrow is the half way point of trying to write 50,000 words. I'm at 20,000 and I am really excited that I have challenged myself to go this far, and can't wait to keep on pushing through to the end.

If anyone else is involved in this, I would love to hear how your month is going!

"The Letter N"

I am so enjoying my sojourn through the alphabet! With each new letter I discover something new and am excited by where the pen and my mind take me next. In this case, it was to the completion of "The Letter N"!

I have listed the newly completed "N" in My Etsy Shop earlier today.  It is available as an authorized art print (8"x10") and as an Open Edition ACEO (2.5"x3.5").

Stacy, MagicLoveCrow, guessed that I was working on "The Letter N" and has provided me with another letter which I began illustrating today.  If you are the first guesser with the current letter, you will be able to provide me with the next letter to illustrate as well as receive a complimentary Open Edition ACEO of the letter you choose.

In order to give others a chance at being first guesser, I humbly ask that previous first guessers please wait until the day following this post to submit their guesses, and that guesses be limited to one per day for each person.  

OK ....  The clue for the new letter is:  It is a consonant and there are only seven of them left to illustrate.  This letter generally starts a question.

You can see which letters have been illustrated so far, go to my latest Etsy listing ("The Letter N")
 and beneath the description of the letter is a list of completed letters ...


"The Letter N"

Good luck guessing!
