I've done it, I've opened a new shop on Etsy,
(for those who don't know what Etsy is, it's an online marketplace where you are able to buy and sell handmade or vintage items, art and supplies).
Do you remember a while back in the post What's in a Name, I asked your advice about a name to use for my art work? well taking all your ideas on board, my new shop is called.....
I'd love you to pop over for a nosey. I haven't got much on there at the moment, my first 3 listings are of Cute Ninja's (read on) but hopefully I will be doing lots of listing in the next few weeks.
Hi to those who have already popped over.
This new shop is in addition to my Handcrafted by Picto empire and not replacing it.
ok I know 'empire' is a bit grand but I couldn't think of the word I wanted to use
I've no doubt that there will be a bit of a crossover between shops but my Etsy shop will be for art work rather than crafts.
I've been playing around with a few Ninja pictures this week, it all started when (cue 'going back in time' type music) a facebook page I follow called Scented Sweetpeas asked if anyone could doodle a Ninja that she could use in her 'Ninja Attacks' (where she visits and likes pages she admires and encourages others to pop over too). I sent her a couple of painted doodles, I enjoyed painting these cute little ninja's so much I went a bit overboard and done lots of them, here are a few, these ones are ACEO's
|Halloween Vampire Ninja|
|Cute Ninja with Nunchucks|
|Cute Ninja's playing dress-up|
What are Aceo's I hear some of you say!!
The acronym "ACEO" stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals,
they can also be known as ATC's Art Trading Cards.
They are collectible little pieces of art always sized 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
They can be framed, either individually or in groups or they can be kept in an album.
I have other ideas in the pipeline for these cuties so watch this space!!!
Wishing you all a great week
