This week's them for Illustration Friday is "Sour."

Original collage ACEO
2.5 x 3.5"

This tiny collage was created for Illustration Friday, a website where each week on Friday artists are given a theme to illustrate. It's a really fun website; I can waste hours just looking.

I used decorative papers to create this. The backing is a dark blue art paper. the lemon is make with a paper that has an embossed texture. The orange skin is a mulberry paper printed with gold leaves, the pulp is a peachy mulberry printed with yellow leaves. The lime skin is a marbled paper and the lime pulp is a paper printed with green chrysanthemums.

Once I pasted the papers down with pva glue I embellished with a little magic marker.
