My Two Cardinal ACEO's

This week I've been busy doing artwork everyday.  I am having a lot of fun with my Prismacolor colored pencils.  So, here are two of my creations.  The first is Mr. Cardinal aceo, created on the back side of mat board.   If interested, he is listed in my etsy shop, just click on the link above.

Here is Little Miss Cardinal aceo.  She is Mr. Cardinal's fiance.  lol  I created her the day after I created him to complete the set.  She is also colored pencil and is created on tan mat board.  I really like the mat board support.  It has good tooth for taking many, many, many layers and I also like how sturdy it is. 
If interested in Little Miss Cardinal, please click on the link above, it will bring you to my etsy shop.
More to come.
Have a fantastic day,
hugs,  Brenda

Lighthouse on the Beach aceo

I decided to try a new support for this aceo, a dark green mat board.  I named it Lighthouse On the Beach and it was created with Prismacolor colored pencil.  It is listed in my etsy shop if you are interested, and it's only $15.
I created Lighthouse On the Beach aceo for my DAWG TEAM March Quest, Oceans/Beaches, stop in and 'like' us and if you create artwork, come and join our group.  We are a group of women who love doing art and love the Lord.

We also have a group on the Ellen Degeneres ning site I'm the moderator on this site, and would love it if you joined us there too.
This past weekend I was looking around YouTube on colored pencil tutorials, I am always wanting to learn as much as I possibly can.  I came across this young artist named Jacqueline Pettie, and she's a wonderful colored pencil artist.  She even has her own YouTube Cannel.  I am very impressed by her talent and dedication to her artwork.  This little lady is going places, that's for sure.

Well, that's it for now.
Have a great day,
