Hello friends – and welcome to number 7 in my watercolor series – as well as a really fun Watercolor Bloghop hosted by my friend Paulina over at Pretty Pink Posh!

Lost and Found Technique

Today’s card is an idea that evolved over a long period of time; I saw mention on some kids art blog post eons ago about using salt with watercolor. They didn’t show visuals, just mentioned it as something to try. And I saw it also on someone’s art journal technique list. Again, no visuals. The idea stuck in my craw, though, and I decided to play with it and see what happened. A full day of experimenting ended with this card well after dark…..and it was worth a full day to get here! Enjoy the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

How crazy is that whole salt idea!? Oh Lordy. I wonder how someone stumbled on the idea. An accident at a lunch counter maybe? In any case, I *adore* the technique. I’ve got more in store to use this for other projects, so stay tuned in coming weeks!
