ACEO-X (4.0): Submissions

Another round of ACEO-X has come & gone; the surprises are in the mail, flying to their new owners. I've received photos of the submissions from all but one participant... want to see them?

The theme for ACEO-X (4.0) was spring & there is definitely a noticeable colour trend! I love seeing everyone's interpretation of this wonderful season, & I especially love to see all the different media used for these ACEOs. Which would you like to receive?

Here they are, in no particular order:

I love the embroidery & Egyptian feel!

artist: Pam Gale
I love the shiny gold collage elements!

artist: Lou Back
I love the crocheted flower addition!

I love the bright colours & cute little bird!

Wow! I love the awesome stitching!

I love this gorgeous collage!

I love the felt - unusual & perfectly lovely!

The background flowers are amazing & really make the bird pop!

I like the addition of the Japanese characters for Sakura, cherry blossoms!

I love the bird cut out of a sheet of music!

artist: Jerise Fogel
I love how papercutting gives an amazing 3D effect!

Lastly (well, besides the missing one), here's mine:
Meet Cora, the 4th piece in my Strong Women ACEO series. You can see the entire series here. I used ink & pencil crayons. I chose the name Cora because it's Greek for "maiden" & is another name given to the goddess Persephone (particularly in the spring when she returns from her 6 months ruling Hades). I hope my partner loves her as much as I do!

Which ACEO is on its way to you? Let us know when you get it!

I received Jerise Fogel's papercut ACEO in the mail the other day, it's so lovely, and the layers of cut paper are so pretty. I love that the Orion constellation was included in it - it would have to be my favourite one (how did you know! hehe). Thank you for a great little piece of art!
