Vintage album cover

This project was on my craft table (actually under the table) for maybe 4 month. I just added tags and doilies and paints and then  peeled them away and added more and it was like a Merry Go Round. Today I finally decided that it will be finished. And so  it was.  I added a lot of chipboards, covered with a lot of embossing powders, a lot of ribbon hand made flowers and some pre- made ones, I shrinked   some flower ribbon with my heat gun, made a spine with a recycled twine and even used the Flourishes with a Bling Rak I got. So here it is: my Enjoy the Journey cover and totally empty inside. It will come. Later. Some day. Never. I think I am a cover collector. Does anyone need a great vintage mini album cover? 8*8 size and perfect for a Bind it All spirals?

And now for the product credits:
Cover: Zutter
Chipboards, Masks: Tando Creative (I just got this new DT box and I FLY!)
Ribbons: Prima, craft shops
Flowers: Prima, I am Roses (great shipping with low cost flowers, I got a huge box with free shipping  from Thailand and it only took 7 days)
Inks: Ranger
Embossing powders: Creative Imaginations Paints
Gesso, glaze, Molding paste: Ranger
Metal: Tim Holtz
Swirl: Flourishes with a Bling
Stamps: Inspired by stamping (sorry, not much seen after all)
And now for some close  ups from this cover: A flower cluster with ma bird cage, a key and 2 ribbon handmade flowers.
 Another close up - lamps
And another one : the bird on the corner
And just few more:

Hope you like this project, it was a long and a hard struggle  to make it -LOL.
