Today is Day 11 of the Christmas celebration. I am excited to show you how to use the Christmas Trees set to create a repeat background using the  MISTI. 

To start, I placed the trees directly in the top acrylic portion of the MISTI, rotating the orientation of the trees, and keeping the trees approximately equidistant apart.

The paper was placed below the stamps, the trees were inked, and I stamped the paper. To stamp the top, Just move the paper over and stamp the rest of the paper.

The piece was then used as a background for Father Christmas.

To make additional pieces, simply replace the paper and start again -- again, one of the joys of using the MISTI. This was my second piece:

Simply put, I just sprayed the background with three different Art Anthology Colorations sprays: Avocado, Timeless, and Warm. I allowed them to dry and used the piece as the background.

Happy Shopping!
