*CONTEST* Assemblage ~Clay Doll on wood panel ~CONTEST IS Now CLOSED

*CONTEST* Give her a name.~ She now has a name !
I drew a name out of the 15 entries , and the lucky winner was Teresa k.a. A Magical Whimsy. 
Her chose name  was 'Miramba of the Turquoise Gems' . Lovely name.
Thanks everyone for playing, and keep your eyes peel for more contests in the future .

This is a paper clay art doll , and the limbs are attached to body with annealed black
wire.(moveable). She holds a little handcrafted clay art with word "love". All her body parts are in clay , except her little furry necklace, and rhinestone on her hat which were added for a little extra sweetness.

Her two tiny blue shoes have each a little rhinestone.
Found cylindrical objects with writing.They were painted and also crackled and glued ,
on the sides of  a 3 " x 4" x 1 1/2 " wood panel, with a little wooden and semi precious stone on top.
I bought 3 of these panels at a recycling depot , and happy I did. They are perfect for small assemblages.
I love these little panels~
~ for the contest
I want a name for this little cutie.
Contest will end January 3rd 2012
~ The winner will win a felted blank journal handcrafted by me, and a 5" x 7" print of choice from my etsy shop. 

Will post a pic. of journal eventually.

She is so sweet!! I would name her "Lovely Lilac" Because her garment reminds me of my white lilac bush. Delicate flowers if you look closely.

I call her Serafina Perriwink. Why? I don't really know but as soon as her photo came up this name popped into my head. If you don't choose this matter...she will always be Serafina Perriwink to me :-)

Carita which derives from "Love"

"Much ado about Love" came to mind for me initially.

If you are looking for a more traditional name I'm thinking, "Anais"
