My new favorite art form is the ACEO. These tiny art pieces come in all colors and media but must be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" in size.

I bought my first one last month, and now I have created my own series based on my latest collection of collages and bracelets.

Below is my first attempt, titled Green, combining green and grass papers in an abstract collage. What do you think?

My Art on a Tote

A friend had artwork from my mini fashion series transferred to a canvas tote and gave it to me as present.

Here's the front of the bag.

And the original collage.

Here's the back.

And the original collage.

Isn't this super cute!?!

Just Beachy

In a previous post, I mentioned my fondness for the beach in winter, yet nothing can compare to the beach in summer. The warm sun and cool breezes. It may only be Lake Erie, but to me it's the ocean.

Last weekend, I met a friend at Pennsylvania's Presque Isle State Park and soaked in the glorious beach, which was so much nicer than I expected.

Inspired by my love of the beach, this resin bangle bracelet is covered with seashell paper plus an inside strip of yellow paper and glossed all over for a shiny finish.
