As mentioned earlier this month, EtsyFAST challenged all its members to create a Fiber ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals).
I am much happier with my second try at an ACEO. My first attempt came out very muted; the colors blended a bit too well.
Determined to create an ACEO that I would be proud of, I decided to try again. This time I cheated (by adding a ribbon rose … I don’t know that it falls within the “fiber” rules). I think it is better for it though.
The ribbon rose was made by me. (It’s a folded rose, tucked in half to lay a bit flatter than it normally would). The background was knitted in a herringbone pattern with rayon yarn, taken from my leftover stash. The ACEO was then hand tacked to a piece of felt to provide some stability.
I must say I enjoy making these ACEO’s, though this will be my last. They are quick to make thanks to their small size (3.5 inches by 2.5 inches).
