Vintage Girl Holiday Ornaments

Here is one of the ornaments made from a vintage girl picture with beads & baubles added. The other will follow as soon as I get the pictures up.

More ACEO's and Christmas ornaments

I have been making more ACEO's and incorporating them into holiday decorations. These satisfy my need for instant gratification. This is fun and I enjoy these mini portraits on whatever subject I feel like at the moment. The mouse is just a little whimsical fella and I did the angel with my sister Kathi in mind who just got the news she is cancer free! ACEO is an acronym for Artist Card Edition Originals. They are also called ATC's short for Artist Trading Cards. Sized to 2.5 x 3.5 inches, they are a perfect way to collect art work like some collect baseball cards or incorporating in other work. I am incorporating them into Christmas ornaments to sell & give as gifts.

I have been playing with artist cards and working small! I am going to incorporate these into Christmas ornaments, but wanted to share my progress so far. I have used acrylics, pencil, markers, glitter, paper in my little creations. I have had a blast with this!
