Here is my latest ACEO. She's an uncertain fairy embarking on her first ever flight. I have used acrylics on heavy watercolour card, with Oriental collage papers and tiny printers sequins. I am very pleased with how she has turned out. When the coats of protective varnish are dry, I will list her in my folksy shop, maybe tomorrow, many thanks, have a lovely new years eve! Sue x

This is my latest Frida Kahlo aceo. She has a dress and hair flowers made of exotic oriental collage papers and a sequin necklace. I have covered her in a couple of layers of varnish for protection. I have to admit she did sell straight away in my folksy shop, but I'll be making a new batch as soon as I've done the vacuuming!! Next time I will blog about the frida's before I list them, to give everyone a chance if they want to buy x
There are a few aceo's left in my folksy shop..

Well, I sold four out of six of the aceo's I listed the other day, but now can't stop creating them!
I'm on a Frida Kahlo run at the moment, so here's a few more. These are all in my folksy shop as I'm a bit worried about the slowness of sales in my etsy, so I'll have to see how things go in the new year, catch y'all later!! Sue x

There seems to be a great interest in ACEO's at the moment. ACEO stands for Art cards, editions and originals, which always measure 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches. These are a great way to collect mini art from a great many artists in a very affordable way. I have made a little set of six aceo's so far and they are gradually being listed in my folksy shop. I've started with some Frida Kahlo original paintings, which I've been chomping at the bit to get started on all week! As I am writing this, they are swiftly selling out, but I still want to show them off. They are very colourful and cute and I can't wait to do some more. Happy holidays everyone x www.mochalulu.folksy.com

I have been taking photos for a few years now. I only had my 1st camera fairly recently. Now that I have mastered photoshop, I can also manipulate my images to get the intimate nostalgic mood, which I admire in some other photographers work.
Here's a taster compilation of what I've been up to.
I'd love to sell them as glossy prints, so I may open a folksy photography shop!
They can be bought in Redbubble at the moment.

It's been hard to find the time lately to start new paintings, life has taken me over for a while. I should get back on track over the Christmas holidays though and get on with new work.
Luckily I can enjoy the fun of mixing and blending the works I have already created, in photoshop, to make new works in a digital format. Purple is a very popular colour, so I decided to create these mini prints and call them "Purple night sky".
These are for sale in my folksy and etsy shops. Thanks for looking, Oh, I will also be creating new art jewellery in the new year, can't wait, happy Christmas to you all ♥
