The girl and the giraffe

When my sister (another sister, not the one who kept saying she was a fairy...) was only little, we went to the zoo. She fell in love with the giraffes there. They were in a Savanna, and it was made so they were on eye level with the visitors. My sister was brave enough to feed one of them a tiny leaf... The look on her face when she saw the huge tongue!!

This little girl gets up early in the morning, before anyone else is awake, to go and feed her pet giraffe -- one leaf at a time.

This ACEO was done in water colour paint and water colour pencil on a card stock background.

It will be send protected by a plastic sleeve (see picture 4) and in a sturdy envelope.

ACEOs, which stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals, are little works of art. They are all 3.5" x 2.5" (or 8.9 cm x 6.4 cm), the same size as regular trading cards. Their size is all they have in common. You can find ACEOs in any medium, from water colours to fabric, from oil paint to metal work and anything else you can think of.

ACEOs are highly collectible, and make cute gifts or nice bookmarks. They can be kept in trading card albums, but will look best framed on their own or in a group.

You can collect ACEOs by artist, medium, theme, colour scheme, style, anything you like. And before you know it, you'll have a whole bunch, and it won't cost you an arm and a leg.
