A set of ACEO

The summer is coming to its end. I was knitting and reading a lot lately, not much of painting… BUT last night I felt like sketching. So I did… Won’t post it though as it waas a process 🙂 Instead I am posting the pic with a set of ACEO cards. They are on sale in my Etsy shop!

Tiny bird

This tiny bird is painted with acrylic on 2 by 3 inches canvas that was already painted grey. I’m still in a process of discovering what can I do with acrylic.

My apologies that the photo isn’t perfect – I didn’t want to wait till morning to catch better light. 🙂

A tiny fox

Yesterday I spent a lot of time sorting my collection of DMC threads. It’s not nearly done yet 🙂 I am going to start a new cross-stitch project and felt the need to sort out the threads by numbers, so I will know which ones I am missing.

I want to share with you one of my old works. This little fox is painted on a tiny canvas (2- by 3-inch). Already made a couple more to give it to my friends .

A couple of weeks ago I decided to create a few ACEO with teapots. Why teapots? Well, I love tea :), so the theme wasn’t hard to pick.

So far I’m done three ACEO. I decided to take pictures during the process of creating the last one, with a red teapot. There you go…


I used watercolor pencils – Faber-Castell Colour Grip and Caran D’ache Watercolor pencils, white Gelly Roll 08 and marker Micron.

And the final result 🙂


What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by!!

ACEO and mandalas

I always liked to draw on small surfaces 🙂 So a few years ago I started to make ACEO cards. In case you don’t know what ACEO is… there you go:
– ACEO stands for Art, Cards Editions and Originals. Each card is the size of 2.5″ x 3.5″.
– ACEO is the great way to start a collection or add a new item to your existing collection.
– ACEO is a wonderful, unique and inexpensive gift.
These days you can find ACEO for sale on Etsy or eBay. I’m selling mine too – please, visit to my Etsy shop.
I decided to post one of my old ACEOs – “Mandala”. It was done with watercolor pencils and a marker (I used this one from Amazon.ca)
