Salty Snow Globe

this week’s 101:water-color assignment is to use the salt watercolour technique in an embellishment/focus point.




memory box snow globe

i kind of jumped ahead last week when i used my salt watercolour leaves as my focal point, but luckily, i had leftover twinkling H2O bits so i used them to create the trees for the snow globe. this week i created the sky and woodgrain trim with my caran d’ache water-soluble wax-pastels and sea salt, both die cut with the memory box snow globe die and popped on foam squares; the stars were die cut from a twinks/salt wash. i added some details to the tiny snowmen, also a memory box die and i added the ribbon and MFT Die-namics snowflake. thanks for popping by.

  1. Cool! The salt technique looks really neat, and the mini snow-people and trees are cute. The ribbon is gorgeous, too.

  2. I have not ever tried the salt technique but know I will be trying it now. It really looks like a snowglobe with that look to the inside.

    Great card, Linda!

    Sorry I do not always get by to visit… I will try harder! lol

  3. Hi Linda, The snow is a fantastic way to use the salt technique! Fabulous effect of textured space in this case- snow. Sorry I’m getting back to you a little late- Summer is a strange time…..can’t wait for Fall! Thanks so much for sharing it with the visitors and me at 101:Watercolor. Cheers, Victoria Lavender
