In today's ACEO offering I decided enhance my watercolour painting by using an element of my my new interest: textiles. Here is the resulting image, with stars sewn into the card using a beautiful golden thread:
The stars look fantastic, espeically when they catch the light - they really bring the whole image to life! I'm so pleased with this piece, and I will be advertising it on Ebay later tonight...
Working in my studio on some other projects, I had an idea to make Bethlehem ACEOs that can be linked together... Here are the first two; I have decided to advertise them separately, but people will have the opportunity to purchase both in order to complete the whole piture.
I'm really pleased with the way in which this has worked. The world is my oyster: I could create panoramas of whole towns...!! ;o)
I'm really excited, as I have some new "Bethlehem" creations for sale on Ebay this week! :o)
The first is called "Bethlehem Sheep," and I simply adore this picture; I love sheep as they remind me of some very happy childhood holidays in North Devon, England - there were always so many sheep up on the hills! I'm really pleased with the way in which this has turned out - so bright and cheerful at a time when the nights seem to be drawing in so fast here now.
The second image is called "Angel of Bethlehem." It's another really cheery piece, and yet at the same time very 'girly' because of the angel in her long pink gown, with feathery wings. Very pretty! Anyway, that's all for today. I do hope that you like my new offerings...!
Hello! In my studio this past week I've already begun to feel somewhat Christmassy...! This time I have returned to watercolours, working on two new themed ACEOs: two vibrantly coloured pieces in my "Bethlehem" series, which was popular with so many people last year. I've really enjoyed creating these pieces, and loved just playing around with some ideas and juxtapositions of such fun colours! I particularly love the little stars, which add great texture to these pieces. Both ACEOs are available for sale on e-bay until 4th November...!
