CAS Watercolour Challenge Guest Designer

Hello and good morning!

I'm delighted to say that I am guesting this month at


I was so thrilled to be asked by the lovely ladies and jumped at the chance!

The challenge this month is to use Salt


I had never tried this before but I'm always up for a challenge and eager to learn new techniques... 
Here's the finished result of my first attempt 


I painted a piece of ordinary white cardstock with Gansai Tambi paints, randomly added table salt, let it dry and then brushed it away... 
The result looked to me like a cold winter's night, trees with snowflakes coming down


So I thought it would be fun to add a little fox (a die gifted to me by my lovely blog friend Greta)


It's such a fun technique and the team have some amazing creations to inspire you up on the blog... Hop on over and take a peek ... We'd love it if you linked up Salt Watercolour creations too

Have a wonderful day!

Love your experiment with salt, Ros...I am afraid we are still very hot, but we did get a little rain! Have a beautiful weekend. Oh I watched all the British Open and I loved the last day especially the outcome...great golf and I always love seeing the countryside where they play.

You are the perfect GD for this challenge, my friend! I'm completely blown away with your background--I see exactly what you said & that was before I read it! In fact, I thought maybe there was some stamping! So glad you could use the little fox--a great scene! I tried the salt idea long ago--not really successful, but you've made me want to give it a go again! Hugs, Greta

Tracy said...

Awesome technique! That's one of the fun ones that you never really know how it will turn out. Great effects!
