aceo - 'bug eyed fish'

Just a quick post of a new ACEO. I did this one recently using my layered technique; one layer in watercolor, one layer in pen and ink, with the pen and ink cut out and adhered to the watercolor. I really think he is so cute!

aceo's in amazing color

Here are a few more ACEO's that I did recently (mostly while I was under the weather). I really love these, especially the intense colors. I especially love creating them.

I also love the 3D effect....2 pieces of artwork that come together and become one. These images just do not do them justice. They are so cool to look at in person. The little bits of shadow the second layer creates really adds great interest.

new old blue shoes

Just a quick update to post a recent pair of shoes I did that I just love! They start out as a normal pair of shoes, old or new, any color....and LOTS of scraps and embellishments.

I love the look of raw edges and jean material can really provide that. Not to mention, a simple pair of jeans can have great edges, seams, snaps, even the belt loops can be used as amazing design elements.

The 'text' was painted on scraps of fabrics for some artistic contrast and further embellishments came from huge stash of fun. They really turned out amazing and they look great with a pair of white capris. Gotta get back to more fun!

back in the saddle...

Time to do some catch up! Since our last meeting I have simply been trying to recover from my arm injury with physical therapy and recovering from two bouts of the flu. The most recent really kicked my....well, you know...and kept me in bed for over a week. I guess I just needed some overdue rest and, boy, did I get some! Feeling like a new woman again and ready to get busy!

During my time of forced rest, relaxation and antibiotics....I was able to finish a few small pieces. Even when sick, I just can't not create!! Impossible. Mostly pen and ink since I could easily work on them while in bed whenever I felt up to it. 'Wise Owl' was so meditative to create, as well as just plain fun. 'Three Fish' that I did a couple months ago was the same way...fun and meditative to do, fun and meditative to look at....I know there will be many more that follow this style. There are quite a few ACEO's that I did as well, but I still have to prep them. So, 'till next time.....
