Pearls and Lace Thursday #56 and the Musical Dress Form

I told y'all that I'd show you more about this project, so here goes!
First and foremost, my thanks to a number of ladies whose blogs have helped to create this lovely lady!
I used a number of items from Karen at The Graphics Fairy who has hundreds of awesome graphics,
and Carol at The Polka Dot Closet who has the most marvelous tutorials!!  She made a lovely lady and that's where this idea came from.  I believe I also used some music graphics from Dawn at The Feathered Nest... and if I missed anyone please let me know so that I can add your name and blogsite to this list.
Modge Podge and printouts...that's it!
She needs a name though....any ideas?  Aria, Sonata, Etude???

Cardstock was my paper of choice because I liked the color of the printouts.  My printer was running out of ink...so the yellow streak in the above picture...maybe I can fix that later.
All in all I'm very pleased with it, and with the pearl necklaces and the pieces of lace collar, I'm THRILLED with it!  I have another form in my craft room waiting for the next group of printed papers.  
  Because of their beauty and the ease of the project, I know many of you will want to try one.
The Polka Dot Closet has the tutorial as I mentioned before, as well as the source for purchasing these.  The price is not bad either!
OK...now it's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!  Please join me by adding your post's URL code to the link below.  Please link back to this party and only use the url code for your POST, not the blogsite.
Also, please NO Etsy or Ebay shops or sales items.
I've really enjoyed being creative during the hot days of summer, and maybe the heat wave will be over soon...HAAAA!!!  I'm in TEXAS!! We are COOKING down here!
Hope you all stay cool!!

Please see the list on my sidebar of the Parties I love to Join!!  They are AWESOME!  I will be adding my link to a number of them, so be sure and check them out!!!

What a wonderful idea. I simply love it and I have been wanting to do a dress form with mosaics of mother of pearl but this one is much easier and a whole lot less cotly! I am so going to try this. Thank you for the great inspiration!
