Skull shadow moon

Hello my friends it’s Visible Image day and today we are getting spooky! I’ve had a lot of fun creating this Halloween scene.

Here are the visible image products used:

Skull shadow

Into the woods

Leave your fears behind

The Steps:

Firstly an ink spray background dried and cut down to size.

I created a moon using white gesso.

Using the stencil I carefully sponged the image using distress oxide ink I then enhanced the stencilled image using intense coloured pencils, a charcoal pencil and some more distress oxide ink.

I masked the moon and created some splatters using watered down white gesso.

I then began the stamping. I also gessoed the right side of the moon again as I wanted the eye sockets and nose to be the main dark areas. The hill was made through a torn copy paper mask and black ink.

I used all of the tree shapes for background interest. I highlighted parts with my white pen. For the foreground I used parts of the tree stamps ( small branches) from both stamp sets and pale distress oxide ink. I roughly drew in the grave stones using soft pastel and a black pen.

Finally I stamped the sentiment and later highlighted it in white.

The close ups:

You will find plenty more inspiration from the rest of the team and our group members on Facebook. Our friendly Group is here check it out for inspiration and support.

  1. WOW! Omg Lisa! I seriously need you to do a class here lol. Love this, the grave stones look 3D! Absolutely fantastic! Xx

  2. This, like all of your work is stunning! Never used spray inks before and really itching to give it a go. Don’t hate me for this question, lol, but could you possibly recommend say, 4 inks sprays, color and maker, as a basic beginners kit? Or put another way, what are your 4 main go to sprays (colors, etc). Just needing a starting point (doesn’t have to be 4, just trying to simplify). Completely at your convenience, await a reply…..Thank you!!
