Seaweed is a loose, colloquial term encompassing macroscopic, multicellular, benthic marine algae. The term includes some members of the red, brown and green algae. Seaweeds can also be classified by use (as food, medicine, fertilizer, industrial, etc.). In Asia, Nori（海苔）(in Japan), Zicai (紫菜) (in China), and Gim (김) (in Korea) are sheets of dried Porphyra used in soups or to wrap sushi. Chondrus crispus (commonly known as Irish Moss or carrageenan moss) is another red alga used in producing various food additives, along with Kappaphycus and various gigartinoid seaweeds. Porphyra is a red alga used in Wales to make laver. Laverbread, made from oats and the laver, is a popular dish there. Affectionately called "Dulce" in northern Belize, seaweeds are mixed with milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla to make a common beverage. (info taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seaweed )
Most of my ACEOs contain calligraphy: in this case, on the back of the ACEO, which gives date, place, and contact info for me, the artist, in Copperplate calligraphy. There is also room on the back for your own personal message, if you use this piece as a special card.
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals, an offshoot from the popular and frequently traded (never sold) Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) - the original work-of-art calling cards traded among artists that were the brainchild of M. Vänçi Stirnemann, who held trading sessions for artists in Zürich, Switzerland, in 1996. I like them as a way of acquiring a small work of original art.
All ACEOs and ATCs are 2½ inches × 3½ inches (64 mm × 89 mm).
