6 x 6 chunky dressed for a party swap

Hello, is anyone still following me??? I'm so sorry I've been MIA for quite some time, but I'M BACK.... Life does get in the way, but I've been making a few projects, I just haven't had time to post to my blog. My bad!!
Recently I was in a swap at We were to make a 18 pages 6x6 dressed for a party chunky book pages. We were to take the Tim Holtz dress form and dress it for a party. I really had a good time making these pages.
For my page I used TH vintage shabby paper and pages from an old piano book I found at a garage sale. I put silver metal tape on chipboard and cut out the dress form using my vagabond. I then embossed the bottom portion of the dress form with the swiss dots folder, I used latte alcohol ink to color it. A cream colored eyelet lace was used for her skirt and pink satin pleated ribbon was used for her top I used cotton balls to give her a bust.
I found the cute New Year baby at I used a program and cut out the background. I then put the image on a TH clock sticker and scanned the image and printed it out 18 times. I sprayed the image with goose bumps for a funky texture. For the hand that points to midnight I used TH pen nib.
The Happy New Year sign was computer generated and cut out with the TH mini label die. On this project I used TH distress inks, vintage photo and tea dye. Liquid pearls was used for her necklace, the tiny rose is from I am roses and sprayed with Tattered Angels cream de rouge.
I hope everyone likes my page and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else did with their page. Let me know what you think if your still following me. Shari
