ACEO: The Secret of Flight by MoonsongWolf ACEO: The Secret of Flight by MoonsongWolf
My part of an ACEO trade with vashley through ACEOfursXchange

An ACEO is a 2.5" X 3.5" drawing, the size of a regular trading card.

I wanted to try something a little different with this one, so I decided to use shrinky dink material. I started with 6" X 9", and, amazingly, it shrunk to almost the perfect size! The only major flaw is that it drifted into a slight rhombus shape rather than a perfect rectangle, but hopefully it isn't too noticeable. The background (except for the stars and clouds) is translucent, so the colours and textures can be changed by putting different pieces of scrapbook paper behind it! I also included a small gem, because Cid loves to collect gems.

Materials: Coloured pencils, shrinky dink, scrapbook paper, and gem

Artwork is  MoonsongWolf
Cid is  vashley

I forget if I told you that this arrived in the mail, probably a couple weeks ago. and It's really a lot more impressive in person. I really like how the background can be changed, but I like the blue one that came with it the most. thank you for packaging it so well with care, I can see how it could possibly break in the mail, it seems to fragile and the people who run the post office can be so careless sometimes. I have never heard of Shrinky Dink before, but since I got this card I went and purchased some so I can hopefully try making something with it, seems like a very versatile medium :D Thank you so much for trading with me! I am so honored to have this card. :hug:

Oh my gosh, I have been so ridiculously negligent in checking my messages lately that I just now got your message! I've been so busy at work lately that I pretty much just log in to post artwork really quickly and then bounce out again. :lol: Hopefully I'll get a bit of a break soon, but I try not to get my hopes up.

I'm glad that this little guy arrived safe and sound! I always worry about shipping shrinky dinks in the mail, because I know the post office can be... less than gentle with packages. Luckily, I haven't had any problems yet! And I'm glad that you liked it even more in person! I hope that you will enjoy making your own shrinkies. They are a lot of fun, and, yes, quite versatile. I make little necklace and keychain charms with it, and my husband makes monster tokens for table top RPGS. I'm sure there are tons of other uses for it, too. 

Also, I got your card in the mail last week! It's awesome, I love it! I already have it up in a frame that I got for some of my ACEOs. :D
