living in a paper world

after making my encaustic/paper bird I decided I wanted to make something else. I asked my 10 year old friend what I should make next and after looking at the polaroid I shot at a fair on my desk she replied "you should make a carousel!"

At first I laughed and thought "yeah right." But then I got an image in my head and worked on it for the past week and a half. It's made out of paper, old book pages and lace all coated in wax. I had a hard time figuring out what to make the animals out of, but I think the lace turned out pretty nice. Now what to make next...
