Default MIX31 - Drip, Drip, Drip

Challenge Title: Drip, Drip, Drip
Hostess: tiffguam (Tiffany Johnson)
Keyword: MIX31

Challenge Gallery

Hello and welcome to another fun Mix-Ability Challenge! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!

If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal, instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

My challenge today can get a little messy! But never fear, messy is FUN! Simply incorporate any drip technique you prefer or want to try! I recommend caking on a border of Gelatos on watercolor paper and then using a dropper of water to allow drips of the color to drip across the page

Besides Gelatos, you can pretty much use any medium to create a drip effect:

-Re-inkers with watered down brush
-Markers with water down brush
-Spray Inks (remove nozzle and drip!)
-Acrylic Paint
-ANY medium you have on hand!

You can use any tool to facilitate the drip:

-dropper
-paint brush
-water brush
-foam brush
-a straw
-heat gun (blow the water across the page)

I made a video for you showing you how to use the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils with a dropper of water:

LOL at the jellybeans.
I know we're meant to be looking at the drip techniques , but as an extra, for the first time ever I want some washi tape!!
Thanks for the great video. I'll be home late today but DH is out tomorrow so I'm sure to get time to play over the weekend if not today.

For Vicky! A Triple

I tried the hairdryer on drips, and it didn't work out the way I wanted. The colors followed their previous path. I thought this worked better. I hope you like it.

What a fun challenge. I added drips with Ranger Distress reinkers to some altered playing cards - it was messy but fun!

HAHA - I was really scared of my first attempt - I think because I was being too timid. I think I can still make it into something though

Once I was bolder I got out of alien leg land

this was a fun - if unpredictable - challenge! I ended up making two very different cards using the drip, drip, drip!

here's the first that I combined with the Free 4 all challenge: MIX31 Who's Starting School? F4A184 by artystamper - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

and here's my second that I combined with the Inspiration challenge: IC404 Thinking of You Mix31 by artystamper - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
