24 Ideas for a Beginners Mini-Album

Hello my dear friends!

I’m a little sad to write this post, because this is my last work for the blog Lindy’s! I spent a wonderful two years on an amazing dream team! I Worked side by side with talented girls, charged with inspiration and got high from sprays, powders and Magicals.  It’s time to give way to new designers, to give the opportunity and their dreams come true!

Today I have prepared for you a collection of useful ideas for decorating pages in albums, making backgrounds for cards or creating projects in art-journal.


You can combine different ideas, use other color combinations and even come up with your own unusual solutions!

Some of these ideas have already been published on Lindy’s Instagram, and some will be shown for the first time!

I filmed a series of short video clips – one minute for each idea and combined them into three parts for easy viewing.

Part 1

Idea № 1. Spray+Stencil and Magical Shaker + White paint

Spray the stencil with a spray and apply it to the paper. Let the paint soak in. Mix white paint and Magicals and apply with a sponge through a stencil. Dry and glue the photo and decor.
