Displaying my 35 list and a WINNER!

I printed out my list of 35 things I needed to do....but that didn't seem like enough.  I went to my wood stash,

and picked out a piece that I could use as a display board.  this one even had pre-drilled holes in it.

I used my walnut ink to add a darker tint.

I sprayed it with both colors,

and used my foam brush to smooth in the color.

I let it dry as much at it could and used a napkin to run in the stain.

Like with many of my projects, I start and let the creative process take over.  With this particular project, I could have skipped the staining.  But it was fun to do and I'll probably try it on others projects in the future.

Back to my project.  I Mod Podged my goals into the center of the board.

I ripped some scrapbook papers into strips and glued those onto the board.

But I wasn't done yet.  I pulled my paint out and deluded it with water.

I used another foam brush and went over the entire surface, wiping off the excess.

I added mod podge to the entire surface.

Now I've just got to hang it.

And the winner of the My Memories giveaway....
