When You Can't Name Your Art...

Ever make something that you're VERY happy with, but you just can't seem to figure out a good name for it?

Well, that has happened to me... tonight, I finished my first two steampunk-inspired ACEOs... and, I think they turned out fantastic. I really dig them, a lot.

I'm ready to put them up on Etsy and share them with the world, but I can't think of a good name for either one! I mean, there's always song lyrics... "Time is On My Side" or "Time Keeps on Slipping Into the Future"... but those are... expected? I don't know... I want something a little more unique, to show the one-of-a-kindness of the cards themselves.

So, here are my two latest creations... can anyone out there help me with a name for either, or both of these cards? If so, you will get the appropriate mention for naming the card(s) in the respective Etsy listing. No good answer will be ignored, and all will be considered.

Please, if you have any ideas, post away!!! :) And thanks.



Oh, and don't forget to enter my giveaway, which ends tomorrow night! Enter HERE!

Funny post!! I never name anything creative. I don't even call my dog & cat by their names, I usually just call them DOG and FATTY (real names - Beau & Batman). I love when people can come up with amazingly descriptive names that really add another layer to a piece. Good Luck with coming up with something!!!
