Hello Beautiful People! Today I’m sharing a fun technique that creates beautiful results.

To start, spread glossy texture paste through a stencil onto Yupo paper.  Be sure to clean your stencils and tools in water right away. Note: I cut my papers to fit the stencils/design of the stencils.  A little color transferred from the stencil onto the Yupo – I just used that color as inspiration for the piece. 😊

After they all dried completely – suggest overnight, it’s time to drip, tilt and have fun! 

See this short video to see how I dripped and tilted.

I repeated this process using different color combinations.

Variations and tips:

  • use a color wheel to help you choose colors – choose colors that are analogous (next to each other), monochromatic (one color in tint, tone, and shade), pick a Triad (like in the video), pick any colors you like and see what happens!
  • drip colors without blending solution or alcohol – the color moves slower, however it’s more intense and rich
  • drip metallic, white, and/or black for added depth and bling
  • in addition to/instead of the stencil, spread the gel around on the Yupo paper for your own design
  • instead of Yupo, use a gesso’d piece of cardstock – different, yet cool results!

These pieces can be used stand-alone or integrated into other art pieces – for greeting cards or framed for wall art. There are so many possibilities, so many color combinations.  

I hope you’ll try it and share what you make with us!!

Supplies used:

  • Paper: Yupo white, Papertrey Ink
  • Alcohol Inks: Ranger, Jacquard Pinata
  • Stamping: Stampendous, Encore metallic gold ink pad, Stampin’ Up! gold emboss powder
  • Stencils: StencilGirl, Club Scrap
  • Other: Golden Regular Gel (semi-gloss), 91% isopropyl alcohol, Ranger Blending Solution
