Tombstone Silhouettes

Here are four tombstone silhouettes I made for a shadow box project. You can print them out, trace them onto cardstock, and then distress them. Use them for any Halloween project!

If you need help or ideas, please check out my tutorial called How To Make A Tombstone From Grunge Paper.

The file is a 200 ppi pdf. Download here.

If you use this in something cool, please take a pic and send it to me or let me know in the comments. I’d love to see your work!

Halloween Pumpkin Ghost Shadow Box

I just listed my first shadow box on Etsy. I’ve been wanting to make some shadow boxes for quite some time now but just haven’t been sure what my subject should be. But then Halloween rolled around and I thought, of course, ghosts and spooky things would make a perfect shadow box subject.

I first cut some paper to fit the box and then whipped up a moon graphic in Photoshop (you can download a copy here), glued it on and then cut out a tree from glitter paper.

I made some tombstones from grunge paper (find out how to do this here), printed out “RIP” from my computer (download a copy here) and piled up pumpkins from the craft store around them.

The pumpkin ghost is made from polymer clay and painted with bright purple, lime green, and Halloween orange. His fingers are made from wire wrapped with paper tape and are glued on to the back of his body.

This purple pumpkin head ghost is having a pumpkin fight in the graveyard with friends. He’s got two piles of pumpkins and is launching them across the graves and through the trees.

I had so much fun making this shadow box!

Freebie Friday: R.I.P. Lettering

R.I.P. Lettering

R.I.P. Lettering

Today I was making a tombstone for a Halloween shadowbox and I needed some spooky lettering that read, “R.I.P.” I created a Photoshop file with a selection of different fonts set against a grungy background. The lettering comes in three sizes. It didn’t take long and I can use it over and over.

For this week’s Friday Freebie I thought I would share it with you. It’s a 200 ppi 8.5″ x 11″ pdf.

You may use it for personal or commercial work but you may NOT sell the file in digital form NOR may you sell it in a printed format.

Download it here.

I’d love to see your work: leave me a link in the comments to show me what you did with this!
