Mixed Media :)

Good evening....I have a mixed media board to share :) 


The board base started out with a sea salt technique where you sprinkle salt on wet ink, let it dry completely and the salt absorbs some of the ink leaving behind a mottled texture. Here is a photo of the board with the dried salt on it:


Now I have a baggie of really pretty sea salt and not sure what to do with it....any suggestions :)


Have a great evening...I will be back tomorrow with another post and some summer fun pics.  Hugs, TRace

Wow oh wow! I love your canvas! That background is amazing! Love the colors, the patterns and the sea salt effect! You've inspired me to have a play with that technique! I really like the results! Thanks so much for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Gorgeous results, Trace! The first thing I thought of to do with that colored salt is to use it in a clear glass vase with some pretty paper flowers with stems......the salt will help hold the stems apart and keep them from all clustering in 1 place.

Love the effect you achieved on your amazing board, Trace - just beautiful! :)

I had the same idea as Lin - the sea salts would look so pretty in a vase with flowers!

Your sea salt is in the shape of a heart, glue it to something in a heart shape!,
