In Our Darkest Moments…

Hello there! Thank you for coming to check out today’s inspiration here on the Visible Image blog.

Becca Cruger is here with a fabulous canvas…

**Warning*** Photo heavy post ahead so get your eyeballs ready for some visual happiness!

I had some messy fun in my studio and I can’t wait to share the results with you all!


I’ve had this bright red canvas staring at me for quite some time. I’ve always thought it’s just been too obnoxiously vibrant, but tonight I decided to conquer it.

What better way to tone down the red than to cover it up? haha
I used a sheet of old, old music given to me by a bloggy friend and cut it into a face shape.

I LOVE how easy it is to make emotive faces with the Face It! stamp set from Visible Image.  I stamped the closed eyes onto the sheet music.

I used some Dina Wakely Scribble Sticks to add some colors to shading.

Even though Scribble Sticks might not look like much when you scribble them on, as soon as water is added to them, they activate and make all kinds of gorgeousness. Around the edges of my face, I used some Faber Castell Gelatos to add depth and dimension.  I also stamped my background with some numbers from the Somewhere in Time stamp set to grunge it up a bit.

I took some metal gears and transformed them with some Inka Gold metallic paste.

I embossed a sentiment from the Glimmer of Light set


I glued down the gears to the top of my gal’s head, along with some turquoise gemstones and then sprinkled the whole dealio with some Picket Fence Distress Spray Stains.


Pretty much in love with the way this turned out and no longer intimidated by all that red.

I had to add the stripeys to the side to complete the whole shebang.

Thanks for tuning in and have a very happy Monday!

This is so cool… Thanks Becca! ♡
