Just for a change.....



Ok,so it's not an art update today-my daughter bought chilled smoothies at the local supermarket where they are promoting a particular brand by topping each bottle off with the coolest miniature pompom hats-and how cute does he look with a little knitted hat on each ear? Enjoy-I had to share these-he didn't even mind and posed for some time quite happily, much to our amusement :)

New ACEO Designs



Gorgoeus selection of new ACEO deisgns currently for sale in my ebay store
-CLICK HERE- to visit now!

What are ACEOs???? ACEO is the acronym for "Art Cards Editions and Originals". An ACEO is a small piece of art that can be defined by it's convenient 2.5 x 3.5 inch size. (Standard trading card size)
ACEOs are VERY different from trading cards however, because they are created and traded or sold by artists.
All my ACEOs are absolute ORIGINAL pieces of art! (Some artists choose to sell prints of their work -'editions' )

ACEOs are created in any medium available in the art world. Artists are creating them in ALL kinds of styles and varieties. There are no rules limiting the artist, outside of the size dimensions. ACEOs can be framed, propped, used as bookmarks,grouped together in larger frames......use YOUR imagination! Trading Card notebooks, sleeves and holders can all be used to display them.

WHY NOT BECOME A COLLECTOR YOURSELF OR BEGIN A COLLECTION AS A SPECIAL GIFT FOR A FRIEND TODAY-THE VARIETIES ARE ENDLESS!
