So anyway, here's one "Scruffie" ACEO my daughter and I made together, will be listed this afternoon
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 ....
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.
