I've had so much fun using salt with my watercolors.
I've gotten so many different looks.
This time I dripped salt water on my wet watercolor wash.
I used plain table salt to mix.
Kind of backwards of what I did on the cards in this post.
I used the right side of this piece this time.
Then I drew some lines on some of the places where the salt had removed the color.
I've learned that the trick is to not think about what the pen is doing.
Just relax and go with the flow.
I stamped in some of the spots too.
Here's what that looks like on a card.
If you like watercolor, try sprinkling some salt on it, or mixing salt in water
and using it as a wash or on wet watercolor.
So much fun!
Challenge is open until the 24th
