Mixed Medium: Acrylic Pour Art Journal with Shari Carroll
Happy Saturday everyone! It’s Shari here with a fun Art Journal page idea. I’ve been playing around with Acrylic Pouring in some of my more recent Mixed Medium projects and wanted to incorporate this technique into Art Journaling.
Dina Wakley Ranger recently came out with a line of Acrylic Pouring products that include Pouring Medium, Cell Creator, Cups and Spoons, and Small Bottles. These new products work beautifully with her paints and Media Board. The Media board is what brings me to Art Journaling. This substrate is perfect for pouring and journaling!! YAH!!
The first thing I did was to mix four colors of paint with the pouring medium. The ratio is 3 parts medium to 1 part Dina Wakley paint. I added a couple drops of Cell Creator to my paint mixtures and created puddles onto the Media Board and tilted it around a bit until the paint covered the board completely.
Once the paint was completely dry, I stamped some designs onto Dina Wakley Collage Paper and added them to the background with Matte Gel Medium.
I added a few strips of Dylusions Washi tape here and there on my background for added color.
I’ve filmed a video showing you how to use the Dina Wakley Paint Pouring products as well as how to create this project. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

This is gorgeous! What a great creation!
Absolutely gorgeous! I want to try it!
I love the colors and am happy to see pouring on a small scale. I want to try pouring on an A2 size. How long did it take for these to dry?
So artsy & beautiful!
This looks like it is so much fun! How long did it take for the paint to dry?
Love these colors and the texture in your piece.
Looks so cool. Great bright colors and so much visual textu re
Awesome project….love mixed media!
Great project. Thanks for sharing.
I could watch this process all day, fascinating to watch the medium move and morph.
Great artwork! I haven’t tried paint pouring yet. Looks like fun…
Thanks for sharing.
WOW such an amazing project!!!
Wow! You make it look so easy! I really want to give the pouring technique a try. The result is just magical! :)
Always enjoy watching you create, Shari – so inspirational:)
So very lovely and a great sentiment! Always love to see your beautiful works of art.
Fabulous! Love the colours you chose … you totally rocked this piece!
wowww….simply AMAZING!!!! I always love to watch paint pouring techniques but this one is especially gorgeous. the four shades are sweet and the way they spread over the canvas to create those beautiful patterns. that’s a treat to the eyes! love how the collage paper was beautifully integrated there. no need to color in to those flowers as the background already pops in. also these paints work with archival inks, gel medium. that’s great!
Such a great project. I have never done any pouring. Looks like it would be fun to try
These look so fun to create!
This is so awesome!
Wow!!! This is so Awesome!!! I really want to try pouring!!
Great project and so pretty!
I love pouring-it will be so much easier with Dina’s products!
Lovely project–looks fun! I love Dina’s paint–but it is quite thick.
I love seeing all of your creations, Shari!
Amazing project! The colors are so beautiful. Love the video, I watched it twice.
WOW Shari, that was amazing. Love the quote too.
I’ve never tried this, but after seeing a huge canvas pouring at JoAnn, I think I love it. I hadn’t even considered a smaller canvas…or two, but this is way cool! TFS!
I have only seen this on you tube. It looks like fun. I may need to give it a try.
Like the way you put these together. So gorgeous!!!!
So pretty. Love the colors and how you did this. Looks wonderful.
Very cool! I’ve only seen Acrylic Pour done on larger surfaces and I didn’t want to do that. I was so glad to see this done here on smaller more manageable size. This has definitely inspired me to give this technique a try. Thanks for sharing and the inspiration.
Awesome Shari, love the colours and I almost want to say that only the paint pouring canvas has a sixties look but then with the stamps and other things on top of it it has a modern twist. Stunning page, thank you for showing!
Beautiful creations. I need to try this.
Very pretty! I love it against the texture background!
Fabulous project and a fun technique.
So cool! Beautiful piece Shari!
This looks so good, mine never turn out looking this good.
This is such a cool art journal piece! I love the look of paint pouring :)
Really pretty project! I love the quote
