March Giveaway - Original ACEOs

For our March giveaway we have three lovely, original ACEOs. What is an ACEO you might ask?
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions & Originals. It is an offshoot of the ATC or Artist Trading Card. The only requirement for an ACEO is that they measure
2.5" x 3.5", the size of a baseball card. It's a fun way for the art collector to buy original art an inexpensive art prints.
There are all sorts of things you can do with ACEOs. You can put them in an album, frame them in a single frame or collage, give them as gifts or display them in a basket.

Here are our three giveaway pieces for March. Perhaps if you win one, it will kick off your ACEO addiction. Like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!

  1. Wonderful Art. The thing I like most about aceos is that you don't need to live in a mansion to have your own little art gallery.

  14. Wow! I love the horses! We live out in the country, so those would look great out here! Horses run in the family. We have family members that barrel race, breed cutting horses, and own race horses, so these would be very appreciated! =)

  21. Hi I am following, I also know that I am a member and unless I am going blind, none of my links appear in the listings on the left side of the blog under members, websites etc.

    I finally figured out how to Tag Whoa to my Etsy products too!!! Only took me about a month.

    I have started doing photo versions of these cards and would appreciate any feedback on thoughts on these, I have had lots of hits but no takers so far and have dropped the price as they are not like the Art cards which are mainly handpainted originals.
