Gourd Doll a Fairy ?

This piece has been a lot of fun. This weekend I started playing around with the niche and going through my treasures to see how I might embellish this... its been so much fun to play with my beads, vintage jewelry collection, and trims
The tiny gourd baby I created last night from some china painted miniatures I made several years ago. I sculpted the body from Apoxie sculpt, paper- mache'd the body, and touched up with a little antique gold inks. The baby is lying in a paper-mached egg gourd with a vintage brass dragon fly and moth . I think the larger figure needs more embellishments, and am still sorting through my treasures. This is the fun part!
