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.

Shari, I always love your mixed media projects. Your canvases have given me great inspiration.

Great job on this. Love the colors and thanks for showing us how to add dimension to the background once made.
I’ve seen a lot of different people doing this pouring, but never saw anything like this created. I love it, brings so many possibilities to mind. Thanks for the video and the inspiration.
What a neat project! Loved watching the paint come together.
