I thought I would share with you some of the new ACEOs I've been making recently. ACEO stands for art cards editions and originals- they are small peicies of artwork to a size of 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches and can be made in any medium. They are a popular afforable way of collecting small peicies of artwork. I have been experimenting a lot lately with colour and texture and introducing a bit more of a 'textile' feel to my latest work through layering and collage.

I have painted these ACEOs using gouache and added texture by combining text from a vintage book with segments of torn hand painted papers. I have thought about adding some stitched areas to them and its something I'll explore in the near future.

I listed the above ACEO on Folksy this moring and it sold rather quickly. I've painted a few in quite romantic colours as I thought they would make a nice little gift to pop into a valentines card, I'll try to list one or two everyday in my shop.


  1. I love your work - these ACEOs are great :)
    - not surprised to read that the one you listed this morning has sold already! Liz

  2. Hi Liz- thanks for the compliment, I'm glad you like them x

  3. I love them too... lovely colours.

    I only recently found out about ACEOs. I was involved in ACT swaps but this is a very interesting development.

    Hope they all sell soon, Pearle :)

  4. Hi Pearle, thanks for the comment, I think ACEOs are more popular in America and just seem to be taking off over here now x
