We started with typewriter...oops showing my age...I meant computer paper and used blue painters' tape to cover the areas we wanted to stay white.

This is Caroline's
The girls then painted over the tape with black and we sprinkled salt onto the paint hoping to create a snowy effect. However, computer paper does NOT act like watercolor paper and the salt did not accomplish the intended result.

Tomorrow we will attempt the little fox. AND purchase some watercolor paper!
