Handbells ACEO

I needed some ATCs which is the trading version (no money is exchanged) of ACEOs. ATCs were the original idea. ACEOs were invented as ATCs to sell on Ebay. Anyway, I made some ATCs with handbells on them for a ACT trade Thursday at JoAnn's Etc. Unfortunately I realized too late that I will be out of town for the trade day and I have already promised to bring cards. So I took cards over today for my painting instructor, Jean, to trade for me. Here is a picture of some of them. They are handbells and notes ringing above the ground.

Fall Leaves ACEOs

These were one painting originally. I didn't like the composition of the piece after I finished it. I tried matting it different ways to make it look better. I decided a week or so ago to cut it up and make ACEOs out of it. I like how they turned out.

My First ACEO for sale

I"m trying something new. I've always liked seeing other artists' ACEOs and I've seen that other people actually buy them, so I've made some. This one is from a set of five that I made. I'll post pictures of the others later - perhaps tomorrow. They are watercolor paintings painted on watercolor paper then mounted to a playing card. I hope to not only sell these, but to attract people to my shop to buy stained-glass art and bigger paintings.
