A little paint pouring

I did some paint pouring yesterday with some friends who had done it before and had skills they were willing to share. I was excited to go and try it but fairly certain it would just be a fun experiment rather than a new passion. Not so sure anymore!! It is very addictive, a bit like alcohol inks and the way they keep moving and doing magical things.

I did several pours on heavy yupo and a couple of little canvases. They take a while to dry so I have turned only one into a card so far. I won’t go into detail about the technique or supplies; I’m too much of a newbie. If you want to learn about paint pouring then look up Myriam’s Nature on youtube and prepare to give up the rest of your day being mesmerized by her beautiful panels. My base for this design was white paint then I dipped threads into blue paint and gold paint and dragged them across the panel to create these pretty patterns.

I’ve turned this panel into a thank you card with a Penny Black die and a MFT sentiment. I am so happy to be sending out thank yous to people who have donated to my Dressember campaign raising money to help fight human trafficking. I am excited that so many of my donations so far have come from people I know through card making, some I’ve met at classes, others read my blog. It is a privilege to be part of such a caring, giving community. Thank you for getting involved. If you would like to donate please visit my campaign page. If you would like to see if I’ve been wearing the dresses each day I’m posting on Pinterest and Instagram.

I will show you more of my paint pouring panels in future posts. Thanks for dropping by.


Paper: heavy weight yupo

Stamp: YAY for you (MFT)

    Beautiful! And, yes, paint pouring is very addicting! Started doing some a year or so ago and often dip card stock into the runoff for cards. Enjoy!

    This is fabulous Heather and not something I have tried as yet. I love that touch of gold mica in there too, and pulling the threads through it has made some pretty patterns. x
