Some more ACEO Halloween fun!

These are my 11th and 12th ACEO for Halloween. I have such fun creating these. The backing on the art card is a vintage Poe book from 1971. The old handwriting behind the transparency is from the turn of the 19-20th century - over 100 years old. The bat paper is old, too, though the printing of bats is current. I've added brads, then whatever seemed to pique my creativity to embellish and enhance these.
In particular it was fun to shrink down an old dictionary page, and use the image to put black cats on, then print and turn it all into a bunting/banner for the little girl witch art card.

I'm offering them for sale on eBay only at the moment. Why not check them out?

A series of ACEO art collages for Halloween.

Numbering my ACEO art cards was up to a number ending in 13, so instead of creating one ACEO with that number I am doing a mini series of Halloween original collage art cards.
I've completed the first 6 in this series, and not sure how many I'll continue doing, the elements used are the same, but the look is different for each. 

I use a page from a 1971 Edgar Allan Poe book, bats printed onto a very old book page, part of a ledger with handwriting over 100 years old. Vintage and antique images of Halloween themes printed onto a transparency, which is secured with metal brad shapes.

I then add a few elements that seem 'appropriate' for that particular image - these included antique and specialty papers, real leaves, and other things that just seem to 'fit'.

Fun to do.

I'm listing them on eBay - so you can see my Halloween art offerings HERE.
