Three Frog ACEO's

I was recently inspired to create this set after reading The ACEO Challenge Blog, which is the creative site hosted by Pam of AlwaysArtistic.  Pam issues a challenge and asks artists to participate in a fun and lively contest.  The current challenge is "Long Legs" and so far there are seven entries.  It is delightful to see the variety of ideas and artworks this challenge has inspired.  I invite you all to take out a few minutes to visit The ACEO Challenge Blog.

The following are my entries (limit of 3 per contest) in the "Long Legs" Challenge ....

Why not take out some time and come up with your own entries in this fun venture?

Currently in my shop

I have 3 mermaids here, part of my Christmas in July sale!

Inspired by the News

Droplets on Oil Spill
by Artist Rita Squier

Original Watercolor Painting
ACEO Art Card
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches

I was inspired by the latest news of the oil spill in the Gulf. I do find inspiration from all around me and the events in my life. But rarely has the news inspired me to create art until this piece.

My dew drop series meets the oil spill.

More of my dew drop series and ACEOs can be found in my Squier Etsy Shop.

Work In Progress: Beaded Aligators ACEO

Summer Buddies by alwaysartistic

I started out by taping the edges of my Strathmore 140 lb cold press paper down on all 4 sides to my plastic utility table. I then used scraps of paper and watercolor paints to stamp the back ground in various places. And I let it sit until it was completely dry, and then removed the tape and cut to ACEO size - 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches.

Next I cut 2 slits in the background to start my 1st alligator. I tied a few knots at the back to make sure it doesn't come undone, and started beading.

I added the legs, I fastened down 1 top leg and 1 bottom leg leaving the other 2 alone.

Then I started the next one.

Added the eyes and continued...

Here they are finished.

A close up!

More images that will be included when I list it.

Here I tried it in one of my plastic ACEO frames without the glass.

Flight of Fancy - watercolor with ink ACEO by Raphaella Vaisseau

Since the flower in this ACEO seems to embody a butterfly, dragonfly or other flying things, I call it "Flight of Fancy."

You can visit my Etsy shop here, this listing here, and my blog here.

My first post for this blog!
This is an ACEO I listed today. I have been obsessed with patterns lately, doing a lot of Mandala-type designs. For this ACEO I went a little more whimsical. Enjoy!
