Squiggle ACEO's

This is my first attempt at creating a series of ACEO's. Generally, I'll create one or two but this time I made over 17 Squiggle ACEO's of different colors. (I think the Lemon Lime ACEO, might be my favorite, with the Metallic Silver following right behind it.)

Each of these ACEO's were hand painted with Lumiere Paint on cotton muslin & then rubber stamped.

I then added layers of irridescent Angelina Fibers, which unfortunately do not photograph well (so I enclosed a closeup so you could see them.)

I then added different colored metal "squiggles" as embellishments.

I normally don't work in browns, so I was unsure of both brown ACEO's, but the feedback I've been receiving seems to be positive.

I had a lot of fun making these & although, I'm questionable about the brown ACEO's & the Cherry Red ACEO (red is another color I normally don't work in), I'm happy with how they turned out.

I'd be happy with them too :)
Love the silver one and the lemon and lime just jumps off the page at you. Great stuff.
