Two original paintings - 1:12 scale dollhouse miniature




I finished two little miniature paintings yesterday, inspired by the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
One is of a little girl "Runaway" running away from her parents who are obviously occupied talking. Watercolor with a little bit of ink.
It's listed on eBay at: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290386424711

The other is "The Hot Seat" - a garden bench in the tropical garden hothouse in the ABGs.
It's all in watercolor. The image size on both is 1.5" - but I've left a white border around the outside that can help with framing.

A binder for storage of your small art collections.



Just created my first binder for sale on Zazzle.
Of course it HAD to be for ACEO collections (just add trading card sleeves).
I used images of my original ACEO collage alphabet series images, so HAD to call it A-Z.

Need something to store your ACEOs in?

Great gifts for Christmas - very unique.
Despite being on a commercial site, these are printed on demand. NOT mass-produced.

Octopus art - original watercolor + ink

Well... this one was FUN!!!!
I've used the technique before, about 8 or 9 years ago, on a larger work. I've been going to do it on ACEOs but haven't seemed to get around to it. I was recently reminded of it in a current magazine, so decided to do one, and 'hit' on the idea of doing an octopus.

The auction is 3 days only.

MUST see to appreciate.
The listing had WIP photos of the process.
This shimmers with iridescent colors!

watercolor + ink
ACEO - 2.5 x 3.5" on watercolor paper.

"Deep Sea-cur"

"Cupcake"

The original of this image is up on eBay for sale. I have put it on Cafe Press as products, and used it as a guide to make a graphic avatar.

A fun one to do. Not realistic of course, but cute never-the-less.




Just a very simple watercolor and ink ACEO (2.5x3.5")

Just listed.

"CupCake"

A whimsical artwork, watercolor & ink that I did a while back. I've used it as the basis for a tiny graphic available on networking sites, and also on Cafe Press where I've put it onto bibs, onesies, together with the lettering. A fun work. I thought it was cute. Hope you do, too.

ACEO or miniature art enclosures









ACEO accessories. Listed on etsy (seller id: artistjillian)

I'm having fun designing these...

Buy this digital sheet with your PERSONAL customization. Print as MANY times as you want. Put your ACEO in a penny sleeve. Tuck it inside the cut-out, folded THANK YOU note card, with your promotional text on the back. Pop it inside the cut-out, folded envelope, with promotional text and greeting on the front. The back flap of the envelope explains ATC, ACEO acronyms + size. You can print at will, but not to share with others, or to alter in any way once purchased. I do the custom lettering.

Once packed, you can then put this in some substantial packaging - but this makes a really nice presentation package for your buyer, or if giving ACEO as a gift.

... as I said ... much fun. More designs to come!

I wanted to share these with y'all.
