Paint Pouring ...

Hi Everybody,

Amongst other things that I have been trying lately, such as the decorated glass and altering bottles, I have also tried my hand at Acrylic Paint Pouring.

 I know it has been around along long time but I have been a bit slow on the uptake. 

This was the first piece I did and it's not very good or very big and I did it on some thick A4 card as a practice run.

But then I decided to cut it up and make cards with it and see how they turned out.

This one is created from the right hand side of the painting and I cut it down to a 5x7"

I used some of the words from the new
 for the greeting because some of them are female names as well as the month, April, May, June or the anniversary Pearl, Ruby. Coral.

The left hand side of the painting I cut out with the Heart from the  Spectacular Swirl   die set and again used the words.

I can't say I am unhappy with either of them and I have now progressed to a bigger canvas to paint on.

I will show you my progress over the coming weeks and I will be videoing them too.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. The pain pouring backgrounds look great-it’s not something I’ve tried.


  2. What a good use of your 'practice' piece. The cards look amazing.
    I have been looking at paint pouring on You Tube and find it fascinating to watch. Looking forward to seeing you next piece of work.

  3. Another talent - looks good.I'm making oval boxes - looking forward to hochanda this week to get more ideas ☺

  4. No, not something I have tried either, when you get to it a video would be great Christina, you never cease to amaze us with your talent....Beautiful cards made from your starter piece....luv Ursula xx

  5. That looks like great fun and I love the colours xx

  6. You really did a beautiful pour. I really love the embellishments you made in it. The leaf and the crosshatching are very nice additions. I like that you used paper too. Inspirational.

  7. Hello Christina,
    There's always some piece or pieces of the card which look good when cut down to make a card and yours are lovely. Sometimes it's a shame to cover the finished result and the cards you've made are ideal.

  10. Looks good fun, must have a go!! Diana Lawton xxx

  11. I watched some videos not long ago but I never tried the paint pouring backgrounds. You'll get each and every time a different result even if you use same colors. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I've never tried to do paint pouring but I sure like your first attempt! And two gorgeous cards from it. I think they are both awesome.

  13. Ooooo another craft medium :) I have been enjoying videos on acrylic paint pouring and I would always look forward to seeing what you come up with Christina. I think what you've done so far, is Beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing. Enjoy your day. xo

  14. I really like the pic of your paint pouring with acrylic paints. Good colours. Nice cards.

  15. Although I have not done a paint pouring, this is a lovely background on your cards. Not sure if I will try this technique. Thanks for sharing. Dianne

  16. I think you did a fantastic job on the paint pouring and your cards turned out awesome....tfs

  17. I love these Christina, could you do a tutorial on how you made them I love backgrounds like this. Love Anne Owens xx

  18. Good Morning Christina. Ohhh how I wish this had been published two weeks ago. Some time ago I bought some tubes of acrylic paint from our pound shop...they got put in a drawer and never resurfaced. Then after Christmas I had a clear out and in the bin they went ......now I wish I had kept them ....I just might get some more now... Thankyou. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds
