Making vintage ACEO'S


I have been playing around with different ways to make ACEO’S this week.
I like making my bright colors ones that I have on Etsy but decided to make an aged looking ACEO.
Even thought the ACEO did not turn out the way I had planned. I still like the effects.





This is my challenge for this month. This is a group of ladies that get together once a month and we are given a challenge to make each month.

You can see their site at http://www.ingoodcohanddyes.com./

We had to use gel or gesso on a picture and bond this to fabric. I decided to use a wood board that I had and then aged the process. I gave it an aged look.
It is called “Memories” of peaceful days.
It is not my favorite way of transferring pictures. Being a little lazy I had rather print my pictures off on my printer.

Likewise - it's not my favourite method either. But you did a terrific job and produced a lovely piece.
