Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi there it's Christine here at Magenta. I wanted to show a type of acrylic pour on a card or Canvas paper. The acrylic paint has been poured on a sheet of Canvas paper allowed to run across the surface a little then a second piece of Canvas paper put on top. When you separate the two pieces of Canvas paper you have two acrylic pours. The free flow of the paint and mix of colours make for a great background.


Bonjour, c'est Christine ici à Magenta. Je voulais montrer un type d'acrylique coulé sur une carte ou du papier Canvas. La peinture acrylique a été coulée sur une feuille de papier Canvas, ce qui a permis à la surface de couler légèrement puis à recouvrir une deuxième feuille de papier Canvas. Lorsque vous séparez les deux morceaux de papier Canvas, vous avez deux coulées d’acrylique. La fluidité de la peinture et le mélange des couleurs créent un superbe arrière-plan.



I used an acrylic paint pen (POSCA) to colour the daisy. You can also see the cells from the acrylic pour in the close up below.

J'ai utilisé un crayon acrylique (POSCA) pour mettre en couleur la marguerite.  Vous pouvez également voir les cellules de l'acrylique verser en gros plan ci-dessous.

Very good use of the acrylic pour method. I've been wanting to try this in stamping cards, but didn't just want the pour pattern to be it. I love the way you made it into a background that still shows the effects you get with that technique.

Beautiful!! Have to try this! did you make the background with only watered-down paint, or did you add something to get the zells? I am not into this (yet)..

Beautiful use of one of your acrylic pour backgrounds! Gorgeous vibrant orange flowers too!

Forgot to say that I love the second card you made too - great text background for the wildflower.

Your dirty pour backgrounds are fabulous. The colour of your bright daisy is such an amazing contrast to your first background. A real WOW! design. Your second pour is softer and perfect with the wildflower silhouettes.

Two beautiful artsy backgrounds for your stamped daisies and thistles, Christine. I love how you got 2 backgrounds out of one pour. Great idea to pick up the excess paints. TFS my friend. Hugs..Nancy

Both cards are gorgeous, Christine! Love your artsy acrylic pour backgrounds. The bright red daisies stand out beautifully, and the black thistle silhouette looks so dreamy against the lighter (second piece of Canvas) background.
