Gourd purse is done, I think lol

Well, finished my purse and am very pleased with it but almost felt that the photos need a frame around them.. But it is a photo purse and just adding the nails did add a lot to them. What a challenge this was for me. But I did order 2 more gourds. I will do one up with glitz and glitter next..not now but later one. I might add some photos on the side as they are bare..

Wow ... that is sure different! Will it stay like that or will it start to decompose after a while?

Thank you Rose Marie and Ann Luo Lan,
Rose, I have my Hawaiian implements when I did the hula for fun about 21 years ago and it is still in tact. People have gourds for over 50 years..these gourds are 1/2-3/4 inch thick, well this one was..lol they are not perfect all around. These are hard skins cansiter gourds. About the outside painting and such, do not know but with 3 coats of modge podge I surely hope it lasts a long time..Do not plan on using it all that much. Thank you again both of you, hugs, Lorraine
