IT'S NEARLY FRIDAY!!! Which in turn means IT'S NEARLY SATURDAY! I say we all start celebrating now.... crack open a nice bottle of wine, switch off the phone and mellow! Aaaaah.... Yeah, I know it doesn't work like that but I can dream!!!
Can I just jolly well say a great big THANK YOU for your response to yesterday's post and the GIVEAWAY contained therein? Oh you ARE just comPLETEly lovely! I'm very excited about the whole giveaway thing and if this all goes well I shall be doing more of them. Really quite giddy!
I've been meaning to post more of the little ACEO/art tile thingies that I've been playing with. It's a lot of pressure-free fun just doodling about randomly on eeny-weeny little cards! So yes, the first set are birdie-based and there's a LOT of shimmer in there, not that the camera picks it up hugely well...but here they are:
These are roughly 2.5" x 2" ish so only diddy-widdy! They're mixed media - Neocolor IIs, Inktense pencils and Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints, with black indian ink and gel pen. I don't know what's going on with my camera - it's definitely got some focus and contrast issues! *sigh*....I'll figure it out! My camera and I will have a 'convesation'!
Anyhoo - the next ones are a teeny bit bigger (about 3.5" x 2.75") and part of an unfinished little set which I did just on a whim, as one so very does, and are a bit of a tangent from the usual thing:
These are SUCH fun to do - I don't know what took me so long to actually have a go... I have few more ready inked but haven't had a chance to do the painty bit yet so they'll just have to wait for a while.
I'm interested to know whether any of you wondrous arty lovely people have played with ATCs and ACEOs and such like? Do you sell them? Do you make prints of them to sell or do you only sell originals? I've been watching some Youtube videos by artists who make a living selling sketch cards and art cards this sort of size but it seems like quite a large and intimidating market to break into. Hmmm....I'm just having a ponderous brain waffle!
Ok - I'm off to finish the day's work so that I can relax with The Colonel, who's a bit fed up as he has a rumbly tummy, poor chap. Don't forget to check out my GIVEAWAY post and leave a comment there if you want to enter, ok? Sending out some love and hugs to all of you - see you soon! Shroo :) xxx
