Art Journal page still using up mess on my desk

This one I love. I began with a page out of a French children's crafting book and then added Distress Ink and Dylusions inks.
The sewing machine and dressmakers form were printed from Graphics Fairy and coloured with watercolours. I then stamped Stampotique's Olivia and cut her into three. I added the head to the dressmaker form and the body to some lace to be doll's clothes. I also added lace to the dressmaker form and sewed on some raffia as a sash.
I coloured the lace with pro markers. I created a shrink plastic geisha doll as my hand made embellishment.
I photographed this around my Grandmother's old Singer machine which is what she taught me on when I was only 7.
