Double-Sided ACEO's

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a great October so far! As you may already know, I love Halloween and all the tricks and treats to see. Can't wait to visit all of your Halloween inspired spookfabulous blogs!

The following are ACEO's (Art Cards, Editions & Originals) I created and sold in 2007. ACEO's are 2.5" X 3.5". These ACEO's were all double-sided cards created using acrylics, collage paper, digital works, as well as new & vintage images. I added my own blessing & spells to the backs of the first three cards.

Spell to Life's Happiness:

Troubles be gone,
Worries move on,
Receive my call,
To all good witches,
Mend my troubles,
With your charmed stitches,
Blessed be thee,
Remove strife and stress,
Heed my call now,
For my life's happiness!

Blessing of Inspiration:

When inspiration
has passed you by,
May it return
with this one sigh,
Creative efforts
from now & then,
Mind & Soul
shall soar again.

Spell for Heart's Desire:

All Good Witches,
Hear my Call,
Grant my Yearning,
Most of All,
To Need, To Want,
To Have what's Mine,
Barriers Free,
The Test of Time,
A Treasured Fitting,
Longed to Acquire,
Bestow my Bidding,
My Heart's Desire.

Love Potion #9 is a special elixer made to override the lusting temptations & errors of Love Potion #8, inevitably when used, Love Potion #9 prevents love from ever fading away.

I added baby Tabitha's face from Bewitched to this card. I love that show. The Love Potion #9 movie with Sandra Bullock is also a favorite.

This is the ACEO art quilt I created using the double-sided altered images. Completely hand stitched using embroidery thread & beads.

Since creating the blessing & spells in 2007, I've already incorporated them in a few altered stitched and painted pieces. I really enjoy thinking up new blessings & spells for fun. I hope to create more for this Halloween season.

Thanks for coming to visit! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
