To read about how I made the Automaton Icon, please visit paperwhimsy.com inspire blog.

This is the first icon in a series. Some will use the paperwhimsy Automaton Form
 and some will be very different as you can see from the piece below.

This piece began with a photo that was printed onto Transfer Paper and ironed onto fabric. I embroidered the face, then the hair. Next, I painted some areas with metallic paint, and added the beads and embellishments.  Finally it was wrapped around a 6″ x 8″ x 2″ deep gesso board surface.

Freaky or pretty? I’ve had comments saying both things. I think some tension in a piece is a good thing. What do you think?
