Distressing with household items - challenge 28 Scrap Africa DT

The challenge is to choose household items to distress your project.
e.g. coffee, tea, bleach, vaseline
to see what the DT have created.   I'd love to see you come and play.

Salt and clear glue were the two items I chose to experiment with.
I remember reading about the process in a magazine some time 
ago and thought it sounded exciting and unpredictable.
First I spritzed water onto some watercolour paper
then added some random water colour paint wash.
Before the ink dried, I drizzled  clear glue and rock salt on top
 These two items cause the paint to clump and repel in random spots.
When the paint is completely dry, I just brushed the salt off with my hands.
The finished tag, trimmed with a Julie Nutting doll and a bit of bling.
