new ACEOS In store now!

This photo-collage is a small sampling of some of my latest ACEO designs, all created using delightful one of a kind embellishments and my own hand dyed silk fibers and fabrics. Rich in colour and totally unique, I have created darling little pockets in many of these for extra detail and interest, so each contains a miniature tag inside!You can click on the image for an enlarged view and please do check out further details in my store by simply clicking HERE!

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.
