171  My huge, textured mermaid painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: January 12, 2012 08:26:18 AM
We just moved into our new house recently and there are lots of bare walls. This is for our family room. It's around 4'x2'. Textured mixed media. Sorry for the photo quality. The pics were taken on my iphone.

172  my four year old daughter's work! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: January 10, 2012 05:40:21 AM
I just love this painting that she did. It covers the whole canvas. She made use of every square inch. There's beautiful depth and colour. It makes me smile!

173  More little Friendly Reminders...I'm on a 'roll'...get it??? in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: January 07, 2012 07:40:59 AM
Okay, maybe if you haven't seen my other little 'Friendly Reminders' and aren't aware that they're made of cardboard rolls, you wouldn't get the pun in the title, but now that you DO know what they're made of...get it? I'm just so punny.

Here's another little Friendly Reminder, everyone. Forgive. Still made from leftover cardboard tube from wrapping paper

175  Faces made from cardboard tubes in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: January 05, 2012 06:05:11 PM
For some reason, when I looked at all the empty cardboard tubes from Christmas wrapping paper, I thought of making little faces with inspirational quotes. I guess I'm in need of reminding and inspiration. So here they are. They're called 'Friendly Reminders'.

176  Another painting! I'm on fire! lol in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: December 12, 2011 06:25:13 PM
I've been in a HUGE artistic funk lately. We were getting our house ready to sell, selling it, buying another, moving across the country, and making our new house a home! But FINALLY I had some time to paint and the artistic funk has lifted. I'm so happy! This was for a swap with craftewoman who was overly patient with me and I'm so grateful. Anyhow, I hope she likes it. It's mixed media and acrylic on 16x20 stretched canvas. I'll take a better pic tomorrow if I remember!

178  Faux-granite countertop! Just a little paint and elbow grease! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by FoxyBlue on: November 28, 2011 05:46:44 PM
So, I just bought a house and the kitchen needs upgrading. I really wanted granite countertops, but didn't want to spend that crazy amount of money. Being a crafty kind of girl, I opted for a faux-granite look for my ugly white stained laminate countertops. I LOVE how it turned out! If you would like to do the same for REALLY cheap, google and youtube 'faux-granite' countertops! It was a lot of fun and with a whole wack of counterspace, it only took around 12 hours labour! You can't see in the pics, but there are flecks of silver to mimic real granite! All you do is prime, apply base coat (I chose black) and then with colours of your choice, use a sea sponge to create that mottled granite look, making sure you add the veins and such and then seal it with layers and layers of polyurethane for the high gloss and durability.

This weekend, I'll be painting the backsplash and then next weeked, it will be painting the cupboards and getting those drawer knobs that look like little diamonds Wink

179  eye spy bag in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FoxyBlue on: August 09, 2011 09:45:55 AM
Just another eye spy bag. Made this one for our long road trip back home to Toronto. Hoping it will keep the kids busy!

180  Re: Witchy Woman - 12x24 mixed media on stretched canvas (pic heavy) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by FoxyBlue on: August 08, 2011 09:04:41 AM
She is lovely. Can you tell us a bit about how she is made, and what she is made from?

Thanks! Sure! As I mentioned, she's mixed media on canvas. To build the texture, I use drywall compound to build the height and the detail and then I seal it with a gel medium (found at art stores) to seal the dry wall compound and make it paintable. Then after that, I just layer and layer and layer the paints and do a lot of dry brushing.

This is what it looks like after all the drywall compound has been laid and the gel medium has been applied.

I hope that helps!
