Perpetual Serenity

- by Julie O'Neil

This week's theme: ATC's and ACEO's

ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. These cards are the size of a trading card - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches. ATC's have been traded among artists for some time. They have become more and more popular and now ACEO's are available for sale to collectors who wish to buy them. As the name implies, some are prints and some are originals. Both are in high demand as they are beautiful, easy to collect and fun to make.

Art: Perpetual Serenity by Artist Julie O'Neil
This original one-of-a-kind altered art collage ATC containing a vintage (ephemera) implied nude transfer (I tore it purposely during the process in order to alter the image and make it seem rougher) on thread lacy white mulberry which has been painted over with iridescent powder and inked to give it that slight aged linen look. Some of the red from the diamonds on the original card shows through for added color. The back of the card has some paint spots on it, but it only adds to it's charm. Sorry for the rough look! Digital appearance may vary from original depending on viewer's computer settings (texture and color, cannot be completely captured via scans).
