12 Days of Christmas

Have you been treating yourself to the 12 days of Christmas with Donna Salazar? Today is day 8 and I wanted to share one of my favorite colors in Donna's exclusive collection of Smooch Spritz. Honestly, I love all 8 colors, they are the best colors from Smooch. The one I used for today is called "Tea Party" , very cute. For a while now I have admired the monochromatic look. I think it is chic and smart, so I decided to have a go at it.
Seems like you can mist anything and everything. Here I misted a punched border ( Donna Salazar Designs "Weathered Mosaics"), chipboard frame and rosette ribbon.


The photo below is....unattractive.






The misted string looks so much better here...




















Thank you for joining me today. Would love to have you back anytime! I will be back tomorrow morning with another project and Donna Salazar Designs. If you want to catch up on the first 7 days of Christmas, please click HERE.
Donna has been posting some fabulous videos all week and she is a technique expert.
See you tomorrow!
