Lemons Nesting

These are my pieces for Jen Worden’s citrus Collage challenge, and it was a challenge. I decided to use sliced dehydrated citrus as the basis for my pieces. I wanted at first to incorporate them into an art doll but I just could not pull it off, the citrus slices were just too disparate. I then tried making a mobile, but it looked silly since it would have worked fine with the type of stuff I don’t have such as twigs, twine, drift wood or natural ephemera. I finally decided upon coupling the slices with a yellow color scheme and rather then a flat collage, a dimensional collage and that is how the nests came about.

    Owwwwww I love this it looks as though you just sliced that piece of fruit.

    I love most of your pieces. I saw your heart’s fell in love with them and decided I had to try to figure out how to make um. I doubt I used the same materials. But do love how they turned out. Thanks, I would have never thought of this.
