CAS Watercolour August's Top Picks

We had so much fun using salt with our watercolour! It was hard to choose our favorites as there were so many gorgeous cards in the gallery.  Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!

Our Top Pick for August
Marcia Hill
Marcia got so much movement in her salted background and we loved the way she split that beautiful snowflake and added half to the background and half to the main design.



Congratulations, Marcia
Make sure to grab the "Top Pick" badge below.

CAS Watercolour August Challenge


Welcome to a new challenge!
Check out the Top Picks from July's Butterfly challenge HERE.



This month we're adding salt to our wet watercolour pieces.
You can use any kind of salt. In fact using more than one kind is really fun as they react differently.
Puzzled? Check out the informative videos below.
