Christmas Countdown Clipboard - 12 Day

Well, this is one of the projects that I have been working on. I'm not sure if I'll be keeping this one or giving it as a present. This is the first clipboard I have done & my first countdown calendar too. I am also entering it into the Practical Scrappers Challenge this week Anything Christmas. Click on over to see what everyone else has made too.
Paper Doll Dress Up Cart. for the Tree
SnowTex for the snow
SCAL for the ornaments & words
Legal size clipboard

I inked the clipboard with a light brown pigment ink then went over it with a white wash (watered down white acrylic paint). I think this gave it a really nice wood grain look. I inked the edges of the paper & the board with brown pigment ink.
I then used Mod Podge over the entire board & place the printed cardstock in place. Then Used another coat of Mod Modge. The tree was also coated in Mod Podge before adhering to the board. I glittered the ornaments & sprayed with a coat of Krylon Preserve It to keep the glitter from scraping off. Then adhered the ornaments to the tree.
I used a hook that screwed into the board to hold the numbered ornaments.
Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed.
