Mini pieces of art

>> Thursday, 31 March 2011

ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) or ATC (Artist Trading Card) have become very popular on Folksy lately.  An ACEO/ATC can be any form of art (original, photographic or print, 2D or 3D) presented on card/paper strictly 3.5" x 2.5" in size.  This website goes into more depth about them.

As there are quite a few for sale on Folksy, as well as very friendly daily forum post, I thought it would be nice to feature some of my favourites.  My daughter, Katie, who absolutely loves horses and has been drawing horses for a number of years now, has decided to (once in a while) draw an ACEO to sell through Ellie's Treasures.  I have to admit, I find it very difficult to actually put them up for sale as I always want to keep them for myself.

This is the first one she did, which has now been sold:
Ellie's Treasures

and this is her current one, which is still for sale:

She also drew a horse for my Mum for Mother's Day (I bought it from her lol) which I've posted snuggled in this little ACEO pouch that I made.

Now for some other beautiful ACEOs from Folksy (I must add it's taken me most of the evening to decide on these six - there's many, many more to choose from so please do have a browse on Folksy).  As always, click on the photo to go directly to the relevant shop.
