I decided to really step out of my comfort box and I had a great time doing it. I found a new challenge and it challenged me. =) At 101 Watercolor Challenge they wanted to see "salt technique" with watercolors. I don't have watercolor paints but I do have some LuminArte Sparkling H2o Paints and you have to use a waterbrush with them so I thought that would work. I watched the videos that they linked to and below is the end result. The background of water that is. I used three different colors to make the water. Ocean Wave, Mystic Blue, and Moss Green. I then just used Iridescent Green to paint the Seahorse.
Here is a close up shot of the water and Seahorse. I used table salt because in the videos I liked that look more than Kosher salt. I didn't brush off all of the salt on my water because it sparkles pretty. This beautiful seahorse came from a new Doodle Pantry set called Carousel Seahorse. The set does come with him already colored and on a pole because he is part of her new carousel sets. He also comes with 7 digital papers and 4 sentiments. You can see one of the sentiments in the above photo.
