Growing Grapes

I am still learning what these materials can do. So far, I am liking the textures of mixing crinkled paper and thread...worth exploring. I am sure different papers (maybe handmade?) would give different effects.

This ACEO is called "Growing Grapes." It has hand sewn, embroidered and woven embellishments. The border is machine stitched.

ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals and are 2.5 inches (6.4cm) by 3.5 inches (8.9cm). They can be displayed in a basket or on a small stand, given as gifts, collected or mounted and framed.

More ACEOs and fabric art may be found in my shop.
