211  Another page in my art journal! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: April 13, 2010 02:08:36 PM
I'm having lots of fun and learning a lot about myself with this art journaling. I find it to be so much fun! Anyhow, the page on the left is not a drawing of mine. I printed it off etsy. Sometimes I'll find something particularly inspiring and have to print it. This is just such a piece. I don't know what it is about her, but I really like her. Her hands, her face, her hair.

My art is on the right. I've used a whole lot of mixed media in this. Gold leaf, cadbury egg wrapper, glitter, paint, pencil crayons, ball point pen, black ink...

I've taken to 'laminating' my pages with packing tape so that they don't stick together. I am having way too much fun with these are journals, and I always feel a lot more settled after having done a page...

212  I started an art journal... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: April 10, 2010 07:28:44 PM
and it was SO. MUCH. FUN!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so I spent the day in a gym watching my husband ref my kids' jiu jitsu tournaments (ok, well he didn't ref my kids, because that would be a conflict of interest, but he reffed the tournament, ok? Geez...)

Anyhow...it was a loooooooooooooooong day, so I pulled a little journal and a pen out of my purse and started sketching. This little lady on the left is what I came up with. When I got home, I got out my art supplies and just kinda went to town. It was super fun and really therapeutic. I've tried the art journal thing before without much success, but now I think I could get into it...

Mind the picture quality...they were taken at night and using a flash washed them out...

This rocks! Deedra is so lucky!

I am, indeed!! Oh how I love her! Here she is sitting in my studio! It's only her temporary home. She really belongs in my daughter's room, but I want to be able to look at her all the time, so for now she's sitting in my studio. As you can tell by the kiss, she's very loved!!

214  My half of a personal swap in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: April 06, 2010 02:01:23 PM
EdelC and I did a swap. She's made me a poppet (yay!!) and I've done this painting for her. It's a little washed out in the straight on shot, but is more accurate in vibrancy in the angle shot. Hope she likes it! As always, I'm really nervous!!!!

215  Dress-up time! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FoxyBlue on: April 06, 2010 06:35:17 AM
I initially made these costumess for Halloween, but they quickly turned into playtime fun costumes! They have lots of fun playing dress-up in these. These are my own patterns. They came out perfect the first try! I was pretty proud of these. There was a lot of sketching involved in these blueprints, and I was pretty impressed that I made no errors.

216  Left over Easter chocolate... in Dessert by FoxyBlue on: April 05, 2010 10:16:27 AM
I don't know if baking goes in this category, but just thought I'd share this idea with you all. Since most of us have enormous amounts of chocolate left over, why not chop it up and use it as chunks in your baking? I'm baking a batch of white and milk chocolate chunk cookies right now!

Just a thought  Smiley

217  Peeps bunting!! in Easter by FoxyBlue on: April 02, 2010 07:03:09 AM
I LOVE PEEPS!!!!!! I found this little bunting tutorial here: http://www.vanessachristenson.com/2010/03/guest-tutorial-blogger-dana-of-made.html . I used some yellow fleece that I had and handstitched mine rather than using my sewing machine, but they will turned out pretty cute, I think! Sorry about the pics, though. They don't depict the actual cuteness of the peeps!

218  A bunny for my daughter in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FoxyBlue on: April 01, 2010 07:09:01 AM
Here's a little bunny for my daughter Sapphire (aka Sisi).

I used fabric from her old baby dress to line the ears, and I also hand-embroidered a little message for her:

The bunny's pretty big. Probably around 18 inches tall.

I added some nice big buttons just for fun...


I hope she likes it!

PS - it's my own pattern...I just fly by the seat of my pants most of the time. I'm not a fan of patterns. I'm not big on rules! lol

220  Really easy Easter Wreath in Easter by FoxyBlue on: March 28, 2010 08:50:02 AM
I found this great Easter wreath tutorial ( http://debbie-doodlings.blogspot.com/2010/03/at-it-again-more-easter-egg-wreaths.html ) and decided to give it a whirl. Super easy. You just cut out a cardboard circle and then use a hot glue gun to stick the plastic eggs on, fill it in with that shredded plastic stuff, add a bow, et voila! But since I don't even know the name for the shredded plastic stuff, it might be advisable for you to visit this tutorial...cuz she's a little better at explaining it than I am! lol
