Ethereal Mini Album

Hi friends, 
today I am sharing with you the sweetest little Ethereal Mini Album made with Items from Reneabouquets!

I also added elements to complete this cover with whimsy; the butterfly on the lower right cover is from printed Beautiful Board, and comes as a set with other pieces, including the tag. The silver crown and fairie are reminiscent of children's story books, which always inspire me. To ground this cover I cut pieces of the Beautiful Board Heart Lattice, Roses topped with Glass Glitter and Moonstones, a small skeleton leaf filled with champagne Micro beads, and the heart is covered with the glitter and beads, and topped with a gorgeous Tiny Treasures Sweet Pea Baby Blue Premium Paper Glitter Glass Butterfly
The book opens with a vintage bow topped with a  White Pearl And Rhinestone Butto…

I then used gel medium, and Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass to give it a shabby distressed, but classy look. Of course I had to make use of some of Renea's absolutely gorgeous Vintage Blue Mulberry flowers.  I love Gardenias and Roses, so these had to make it on the front. I surrounded a Beautiful Boar…
