Experimenting with acrylic pouring (again) – a mixed media art process

Hello everyone!

Well, here it is! Another acrylic pouring technique attempt lol!

Truth be told, I failed on my first attempt; however, I am still inspired by the acrylic pouring YouTube videos that I have been binge-watching for a few months now. P.S.: I tried to refrain myself from being hypnotized by the coolness of those videos.

To make this project more interesting, I have decided to use colours that bring happiness – because I know that we need some cheering up. So, I went on Pinterest and saved every colour palettes that are fun and playful.

Here is the photo of the colour palette that inspired me:

I think that the yellow and pink colours reeled me in. To kick this project’s challenging aspect, I have also thought of mainly using thrifted items and stashed tags. Moreover, I did not want to use my silicone stamps and ink pads, so I used a different technique!

I want to encourage you to use items that are in your art stash, and just have fun creating.
