Salty Scene

ow ow ow ... first time playing with watercolours and salt - what fun.  Well I won't show you the ones that didn't turn out - different card definitely gives different results.  This was just a card scrap and I just used up some of my Brushos  leftovers and sea salt on the bottom and table salt on the top and wellah I have a scene.... thought the green at the top looked like a tree so I painted in a truck and branches and a few leaves and the green blobs on the bottom could be 'salt' bushes. I just added a bird.  Thank you CAS Watercolour August challenge for suggesting we try 'SALT' - I'm sure having fun.  ps. Can we reuse the salt rocks we brush off maybe they'll leave some colour behind?  Thanks for taking a peek
