It's A New Thang...for me anyway

ACEOs!!! I just may become addicted to this new thing. New to me anyway. Artist Trading Cards and Artist Cards, Editions and Originals have been around for a while. I'm not too sure exactly how long, maybe around ten years or so. Although miniature artwork has probably been around about as long as there have been artists. Historically miniatures really didn't have any guidelines, they were very small works of art that the artist made either to show off their work or to enable people to carry around an image of their loved one. This new age of ATCs and ACEOs does have one guideline - for size. ACEOs must be 2.5" X 3.5" the same size as baseball cards. They may be made in any medium the artist chooses to use. In this post I am showing what I have been doing, the next one I will show you some of the ACEOs of some artists whose work I desire to add to my ACEO collection.

Sooooo gorgeous...

And THANK YOU for clarifying for me what ACEO actually stands for ... it occurred to me yesterday that although I make them I didn't actually know ....

That is SO funny that you've brought this up as I was thinking of the same exact thing last night! It's a little piece of actual artwork! I love them :)

Incredible!

Hello!
I am in the process of researching for a book I would like to write that addresses ten struggles that Christian women face. I would love to have your input as well.

Thank you for any help you can give me. All I need is the list of ten things as well as your age. Thank you!

I love your clay ACEO's! So clever and lovely. I went through a phase of doing ACEO's but I did them with watercolor pencils. Will have to try a few in clay. :o) Beautiful work!
