I been wanting to make some of these forever, and yesterday I lost my computer to the kids all day so I did what any crafter would do...I created stuff LOL
These cool cards are SOOO much fun to make. I made a few and wanted to show them off here and I hope to include this new art work in my shop this week, as I am hooked on it and I feel like this form of art really allows me to speak my soul. I can make such a statement without saying a word, I like that.
Here are a few:
This one I made from a wallet size picture of Maylee and some fabric and lace. Did I mention these cards are the size of a baseball card?? The are 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches and fit inside one of those plastic sleeves you can get for baseball and other collector cards. This is a fun cheap way to build up a fantastic art collection! There are sellers on Etsy who make special frames for these that will hold like 3 or more ACEO's. Just do a search for "ACEO frames" and you should come up with a few!
Here is one of thee cards in relation to a standard size computer mouse
Here is one I made from the packages off some fireworks Tyler got. Pretty funny huh?
I like making funny ones, and serious ones too like this next one:
I call this one Garden Variety Consumerism.
The glue isnt dry yet as you can see but I had to show it off. I JUST made this one LOL
This was inspired by the mountains of credit card offers both of us get every freaking day. I chose to recycle one to make a point.
Here is another one I made that I LOOOVE!
This is made from fabric, a batik on the background and random cottons for the fairy. I made her wings out of jewelry wire. Neat huh?
See how much fun you can have with this. I use ALL kinds of stuff around the house to make em! The only rule is they have to be 2.5 by 3.5 inches to qualify as an ACEO. You can just turn loose and have fun! This is similar to the Dotee doll thing I was into. It was fun and you could use SOOO many things to make your doll special.
Feel free to post a comment and let me know whatcha think! I love getting feedback on stuff
