My book cover project

I decided to do book cover project which is my first time to do it. I got cardboard from back of envelope and cut size you want it to be and do same of 3 cards. I distress ink on 3 card using vintage photo then print free clock and hands and distress ink again on then clock. I put crackle on clock and when it dry I distress ink again so you can see crackle as I want the clock to be old vintage and last thing I did put on the clock and hands is putting clear embossing powder on then stick the hands on.
Back to 3 cards. Stick 1 on cardboard and 2 need to cut in the middle same size as the clock, just cut it like on 1 card + then other card × in the middle. Now stick it on first card and other on top and bend over from the middle to open it, I did is rip it while bend over.
Next is put crackle on the cover book and when it dry, I use alcohol ink from Tim Holt called espresso and gold and dab it all over cover book with blend solution.
I found stamp called keys from kanban crafts and I choose key and key hole and door hinge then cut it out, I use embossing ink and put gold tinsel then heat it up and again embossing ink put clear powder and heat it up to make it strong and finally stick on the cover book, I have outline on key hole and door hinge. I have to think what title to put on my cover book weather it be dairy book or note book.
