Mini Autumn Swap

What is a mini Autumn Swap you may ask?
Well it involves mini art in the format of ACEOs.
ACEOs aka ATCs are Artist Trading Cards
and measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
They can be in any medium any style the only rule is the size.

Well the ACEO team from etsy was holding a swap.

It was real simple - theme,  Autumn
& we exchange with just one person!

I was really blessed to get Lee of Watercolors or Else !

She sent me not one, but two beautiful aceo's
and they arrived in a handpainted card!
All are most certainly frame worthy!!
I love the tree and the shadow under the leaves - gorgeous!

My offerings weren't nearly so grand -
a collage made using handmade artisan papers, 
"an Autumn Day" is from an old vintage book,
and a genuine maple leaf I saved from last autumn.
this I did in water colors

 and I enclosed them in a collaged note card

So thank you very much Lee for being so generous
with your beautiful art
and thanks to the ACEO etsy team for holding this swap!!
