ACEO – Art Cards Editions and Originals


I have been busy creating little works of art on paper, my doodles are now available in the shop as mounted originals or prints and I will be adding plenty more as the days roll by….  beads all start with a doodle and my first love was always pencils.  Hope you all like them.  Click on the shop link to have a better look with more details.


As always monitors do show different colour spectrums so I have included both a scanned image and a photographed image in the shop.  I love bright colour so the bright images are more akin to the ‘real’ piece.

Colour Palette Design Challenge

Just look at those colours, don’t they make you want to burst into song?  Just me then! 

Bonnie, from Jasper Gems created a design challenge.  Choosing between three colour palettes, you could use one or more, to create a piece of jewellery.  I am actually late to the party, the reveal was 31st March and I was away, so I am posting mine now, but it did give me a chance to look at the other entries and quite a few of us chose this palette, not surprised its so full of colour and zing.  Here is a list of the other entries to look at, then I will show you mine….

Alicia Marinache
Leah Curtis
Cheryl Dunham
Andrea Trank
Shai Williams
So now to mine…

 I just loved these colours.  Bright yellow fish with black line detail, a cute blue dolphin…..

glass red faux pearls with black lava beads that are so tactile and have been languishing in my stash for ages, it was about time I did more than stroke them!

  1. and to accent the piece I added a few glass spacer beads in red and white – I saw the lighter colour as more of a white than a dusty grey.
I just want to thank Bonnie for creating this challenge I really enjoyed the colours and even though I was late I was determined to show mine.
Hope you like it.  Laney x
