If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll remember how I liked to play with vintage photos and alter them with collage techniques. Then with the push to paint in the fall, I put my vintage photo collaging on the back burner. Recently I’ve had the itch to play with them again and yesterday sat down to create 26, yes, 26 ACEO’s (art cards)!
The thing I love about creating ACEO collages is that their small size and use of photos means I can make dozens in the time it takes me to do one painting. So when I’m feeling like I need instant gratification, ACEO’s are the way to go.
It actually started with a desire to create some Valentine-themed pieces to make into cards for my shop for the upcoming holiday (which I’ve just printed out today, so I’ll share pictures later on this week), but here’s a peak at one of the pieces:
I even did some light Valentine’s decorating this year (will share those pictures later in the week as well). I love the festivity of holidays and seasons yet never decorate accordingly because I often found those decorative items wasteful. But this year, I’ve decided to decorate seasonally using old items in my house in new ways as well as utilizing thrifted, vintage, eco-friendly finds, so I’ll be sure to share as I change up the themes in our home.
Would love your feedback on the vintage girls! Hope you all have a good start to your week!
