From My Word Bowl 5 Two Aceos by Tori Beveridge

From My Word Bowl – 5

From My Word Bowl – 5 This week’s words inspired me to create two aceos.  Two aceos because of “the two”.     The words spirit and humble reminded me of the style and techniques taught in one of Life Book 2016’s lessons by Shiloh Sophia .  I wasn’t in a painterly sort of mood, so […]

Shabby Wren Collage

It’s not very often that I do collage.  Wait.  That’s not exactly the truth.   Let me clarify. It’s not very often that I do collage and don’t do any painting or sketching or doodling along with it. When I got the opportunity to take part in a “Shabby Chic” ATC Swap, I jumped in […]

Day 16 – Two Peas in A Pod

Today, I have something totally different from the last two days to share with you.  My painting was inspired by an art swap that I’m taking part in, and the theme is Food With a Face. I painted two cute little peas in a pod for it.  Although personally, I think these peas are too […]


Today I’d love to show you two new little aceos/atcs  that I did for art swaps.  They’ve been sent and received by their new owners, so I’m not ruining any surprises. This first one, done with ink and colored pencils, was for an Alice in Wonderland theme.  There had to be one red heart in […]

AEDM – Winter Girl

It’s Day 25 of Art Every Day Month. I must be honest.  I didn’t do any art on Thanksgiving or Friday.   Yesterday and today have been doodling days. I created this little Winter Girl, who will most likely end up on someone’s Christmas Card.  She’s was done on mixed medium ACEO( 2.5 x 3.5 […]

Art – Rainbow Sherbet Inspirations

I did two quick little art pieces inspired by, and for, Twinkle Twinkle’s Summer of Color 2, Ice Cream Inspirations. This sounded like so much fun, when I stumbled across it, mainly because I LOVE ice cream.  Getting a chance to create art based upon the colors of delicious ice cream flavors was something I […]
