Mosaic Abstracts Using Lindy’s and Stencils by Tracy V.

Hi Lindy’s Fans,

I recently saw a video of Artist Mary Beth Shaw creating “art parts” to be used on mixed media journal pages. No sooner did I see Artist Shemi Dixon make an abstract mosaic on a canvas with different art parts. I thought, why not create my own art parts mosaic collages?!

I liked Shemi’s neutral color palette and technique of adhering the parts to cardboard, but changed up my substrate and used only Lindy’s Products for my color. Such a simple and fun way to create unique art…and countless ways to play with your Lindy’s!

  • Choose your color palette and products from your Lindy’s collection. I used Blazing Black Flat Fabio Spray; Black Hole Black and Cowabunga Copper Magicals; and Tin Roof Rusted Embossing Powder
  • Create several collage pieces using different techniques. I created mine as follows:
    • Mixing Magical with gesso and pouncing through stencils onto book paper and a paper bag.
    • Using my Spray to stencil on heavy mixed media paper.
    • Dabbing Embossing Liquid through a stencil and using my Embossing Powder on black paper.
    • Doodling with my Spray top or a skewer dipped in Spray.
  • Use a glue stick to adhere all of your pages onto thin cardboard.
  • Cut each sheet into various sized squares and rectangles.
  • Prep your substrate with Black Gesso.
  • Arrange your “art parts” on each board and adhere with Gel Medium.


  • Various Lindy’s products – I suggest a a few Magicals, Sprays and an Embossing Powder
  • Various papers like book pages, black paper, a paper bag, mixed media paper, etc.
  • Substrate of your choice – I used small Wooden Panels specifically for paint pouring because I liked the inset
  • White and Black Gesso
  • Light weight cardboard
  • Glue Stick
  • Various Stencils
  • Skewer (optional)
  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • Gel Medium or Modge Podge
