This last one wasn't 'officially entered' but it came within the rules, they can be no bigger than 11x14, but Can be 11x14 so I added it because the artist stated that would have liked to enter I did. Hope that's ok, Marlene?!?
I hope you enjoyed seeing all the entries as much as I did. Thought its kinda nice to put them all in one spot like this. Stay tuned for the June Challenge, the theme will be "Nursery Rhymes" Hope you all can squeeze in a little bit of time to join in the fun. Remember, invite all your friends to join, this is for everyone who wants to participate!!!
See ya!

This Months Challenge

This Month the Challenge is to create an ACEO representing your favorite Movie.  I must admit I have not got mine done for this month, but will use the following as inspiration.  Although I know it will not qualify because of it's size it was still fun to paint.

I did a painting of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, it is a 14X11 acrylic painting on canvas and gave it as a door prize for an Everything Oz Blog Party.

I hope to get time to work on a movie themed ACEO this week.  Remember that ACEO's can be done in any medium you choose to work in.  They can be collage, acrylic, watercolor, color pencil, encaustic, fabric, the choices are endless, just the size 2.5 X 3.5 inches is what matters.

I would really like to see all the team members get involved and would welcome any readers to jump in and join this fun challenge.  No pressure as you have the whole month to create your entry.  You can read the rules here, they are simple:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join in our challenge.
