Magical Spring Collage Fodder by Tracy V.

Happy Spring Lindy’s Fans!

As an eco-dyer and nature lover, I am so thrilled to see florals finally blooming in upstate New York, I just had to embrace their beauty in this project…and what better way to represent the bright, vibrant colors of spring than with Lindy’s Magicals!



  1. Use gel pen to sketch florals on the watercolor paper. A great resource to learn to draw botanicals of all kinds is Peggy Dean’s Botanical Line Drawing available on Amazon.
  2. Add just a pinch of each Magical to your palette and spray lightly with water to activate. Paint your florals from the outside, in to create depth in color.
  3. Fussy cut florals and run thru a sticker-maker or set-aside if using a glue stick.
  4. Use a palette knife to scrape gel medium thru stencil and onto tags.
  5. Once completely dry, brush with clear gesso.
  6. Spray with your favorite Lindy’s Sprays.
  7. Use Distress Ink Pad and blotter to edge the tags and brush over the dried gel medium to create a vintage look.
  8. Arrange your flowers and adhere to tag, add any other collage fodder you desire!


I would love to see your floral collage fodder and how you use them!
