These are not quite the pods from the old movie, but they do remind me of pods or leaves. They are made from roving which I turn into felt, then shape and embroider. They are about 4 inches wide and range in length from 7 – 9 inches long.
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?
This angel will be given away on December 13th, 2014. The details are HERE on the paperwhimsy inspire blog.

A large number of participants have generously donated their work! This will be a wonderful opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind artwork — please help us spread the word!
