Inspired By ACEO

I just love ACEOs because no matter how busy life is, you can always find time in the midst of our day to work on these little pieces, to try a new technique or inspire us into something bigger. Well, this is what happened for me. This is the 2-layer technique I spoke about here. First, I finished this ACEO....

then I finished this ACEO....

(c) Lorrie Bennett 2010 'Flower 1'
which in turn inspired me to do this piece....
(c) Lorrie Bennett 2010 'Morning Song'
It's an 8x10 so I plan on taking this and reformatting it for an open edition ACEO print, perhaps with a quote at the bottom. Haven't finished that part yet but will be in my Etsy Shop soon. I just love ACEO's and all their little...ur...big potentials!

Totally awesome! This is simply some incredibly beautiful artwork ...
Where did your inspiration come from? I need some of that type of inspiration!
If I wasn't on such a fixed income, your "Morning Song" is a piece I would dearly love to own ... just to have it in front of me each day for creative inspiration would be the ultimate!
Keep it flowing so the rest of us can enjoy ... Thank you for the beauty you have created.

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful support, comments and feedback!! So many things inspire me...just looking out my studio window, catching a glimpse of a bird at the feeder, the trees swaying or the leaves falling in the wind...and other artisans work inspire me as well. And to know that I have inspired others is such a blessing to me!! Thank you so very much!!

I love these beautiful creative cards! A doodler's Dream. Students should be taught this technique in school - their retention would blossum. Thanks for sharing.
