Android Custom "Tree Swing" NYCC 2012

I realized that I didn't have much of this little guy in the last post so I wanted to rectify that - I didn't really get a lot of choice shots of this fella but there really is a lot to see! So here are some shots of all the bits and pieces that make up that sculpture - enjoy :)

This is the finished piece in the dome from the last post


Happy swinging flannel Android

Android squirrel!

I water colored both sides of sheets of pale tinted paper with fall colors, then stamped out several sizes of leaf shapes, then spritzed the cut pieces with water and rolled them in my hands to make them twist and curl like dead leaves.  Each leaf was then individually adhered to the branches.

Android feets! Jus' swinging, nbd.

Oh yeah! I almost forgot - to other possibilities instead of the wood swing was a tire swing (SO cute but the item came too late) or a kite to be tangled in the tree and for him to dangle from.  I made the kite with a wax and tissue decoupage  .  Both cute ideas I think but the swing won over through simplicity!

A scaled model tractor tire - would have been so adorable but arrived in the mail a day late.  Next time!
