Rainbow Mosaic

Morning, I really think this project would look great as a piece of wall art. I used the 'Mosaic' Mixed Media Dies by Leonie, along with the coordinating stamps. I do hope you got to see the shows Leonie had on Hochanda yesterday, if you missed them they will be available on 'Rewind' via their website.

To begin with, I blended a selection of Distress inks onto watercolour card. I did a selection of blends in order to achieve the ones I needed to create the graduation of colour and a more seamless blend across the piece. The colours I used here were: Fired Brick,Rusty Hinge, Fossilised Amber, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concorde, Blueprint Sketch, Mowed Lawn and Faded Jeans.

Once they were dry, I cut the pieces using the 'Mosaic' dies, then separated them into colour stories.

I arranged the pieces on to black matt card, from red through orange, yellow, green then to blues. I matted this onto white card leaving a space beneath for the sentiment, which was also matted onto black card. I coated all of the mosaic tiles with Glossy Accents, when these had set I secured the piece to a black background to keep a very simple and clean look.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today. I do hope you like this and the step by step I have included for you. I hope you all have a great weekend and I will be back again on Monday. For now, Take care and Happy


  1. Love this Nick. The die looks very interesting. Saw this on Leonie's show. Very impressive. Thank you for the tutorial. Brilliant.

  2. This piece is amazing Nick and really is a work of art. It must have taken a long time to make fiddling around with all those little pieces.
    Thank you for sharing, Nicola xxx
