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.
