If you follow me on Facebook – why wouldn’t you? – you’ve seen me post my ACEO drawings.
I love making them because they usually don’t take very long to complete. It’s like a palette cleanser between bigger projects.
What is an ACEO?
ACEO is an acronym that stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals.
The only real rule is that they must be 2.5 x 3.5″.
That leaves the door wide open for creativity, now doesn’t it? Canvas, watercolor paper, fabric, photo paper, collage, needlepoint… whatever you have in your stash of crafty goodness will work.
I found some 140 lb watercolor paper in my stash and promptly cut it into the appropriate size and doodled and painted and made a whole bunch of mini masterpieces like these:
Then I grabbed me some black cardstock and a white gel pen and doodled a whole bunch more.
You can go to the ACEO section in my shop to see what is available for purchase. (at a very reasonable price, I might add.)
So now you want to make some too, don’t you?
ACEOs are a great friendship builder. I’ve traded with other artists all over the world. They are inexpensive to mail and it’s such a thrill to go to my mailbox and get a little package with foreign stamps.
Want to do an ACEO swap? Send me a message because you know I love that sort of thing, time permitting.
