Watercolor 101

 August 8, 2014 ~~~~~~~ What Victoria had to say:
Last week we wrapped up Watercolor and the Salt technique. Everyone did so well! And now you have a new skill to add to your personal treasures. I hope you all had fun with the "lesson". Great thanks to-

 ....ladies you have excelled in your Salt Course and if I had grades to give out you'd all get A+'s! You are all "Best in Class". Thank you for your support of 101: Watercolor!

Welcome and thank you for stopping by:

I discovered a Watercolor blog challenge through Diane M blog. We are now on week 2 at the Watercolor 101 challenge -  using the Watercolor Salt technique we learned from last week to embellish/focal point.

I am by no means, an artist - nor have I had any art lessons- other than the required Art class in college which was basically learning about Art/Artist. However, I am finding this Watercolor challenge a fun and creative idea for crafting.

For my card creation - I made the watercolor salt technique on paper and then cut two strips - one to represent Sun and Sky and one to represent dirt and grass. I used a Bicycle Embossing folder on my grungy green cardstock. I also cut a portion of the watercolor salt finished technique from my paper to first emboss and then to trim and fit in the area of the basket for the bicycle.  I added some twine and called my card - finished. :)     Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day.
