Key to my heart book frame

I am not sure where or when I 've seen this easy book box folding- so thanks to whoever you are for the idea. I think the result is pretty, also it was a really hard job.. And again:Tim Holtz and Graphic 45 should be the best friends ever, they just fit..
The innovating thing here was to use TH keys inner clear packaging for the middle page inside..
Then again- the crackled paint in blue color was dry.. Damn.. It happens all the time.. So I went to red and added some brown ink over it to make it a bit mute..In between I waited for 4-5 hours for the paint to be dry.. I hate waiting, and this is the main reason I do too little Mixed media items, also I know all techniques and have lot of products.. You need to be patient with paints and molds and everything messy.. I can't.. I want my item done instantly- so MM is only here and there and not too much products in one item.. So we have here paints, misting the " book" sides with copper mist, some inking and zero stamping.I wanted to use my stamps- didn't find a " white space" for it as this item is not so big..
Ok.. I hope you like it, it was a fun to do this " book" amd I am sure I will do a lot more of them..
 And some challenges:
Male project for Craft your passion
 Oldfashioned for ABC
 Not a card for Lets craft and create and for Craft
 One for men for Crafty catz
Love for Stamp and create
 Mono chrom(ok- one red piece taht can be out.. LOL) for Challenge up your life
 Distressing and love for Elephantastic

I agree Tim and Graphics 45 should be BFF's. I love your book box and I would love to know where the techinque is from even if it does take forever! I think I have some tan crackle paint, though it's probably dry too! I think I've heard Tim say to just put a little bit of water in it.
