Stepping out of the box

Someone bought the entire series on Ebay
I've been feeling a little sassy lately, maybe more like rebellious.Just when things are going so well with my little ACEO cards I go and change things up, like abstracts.I still am in keeping with my colorful palette but instead of the landscapes I turned up the volume with swirling ribbons, leaves, and an occasional bobble or two.I love combining certain colors and adding something unexpected.I rather like the rebellious artist in me :)
This is, so far a series of five.We''ll see if I stay in this sassy mood!
