My goodness, I haven't posted here in a while, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy!! I am still smitten with ACEOs - those little art trading cards that measure 2.5" by 3.5", just like official baseball trading cards. Only these are original art and if you go searching for them on ebay, you'll find a blue million of them - all creative and artistic and an absolute STEAL for the price.
One of the organized ACEO groups that I belong to on ebay has undertaken a project to make and publish a deck of playing cards. This has been a hoot to be part of! First of all, the signup for the cards took place a few weeks ago and the list of cards was filled in the first twenty minutes. Good thing for me that I was available during the Sunday afternoon signup!!
Thankfully, I got in on requesting a card and I was assigned the five of spades. I was thrilled to have an "ordinary" card and put some thought into the design. I wanted something that there would be "five" of and also something that would look good, design-wise, no matter which direction it faced. Here is what I came up with:
and here is what it will look like as a playing card...
This is just one of 54 original art cards that will be professionally produced and available for sale at ~ $5 per deck. Let me know if you would like one!!
