Tag Tuesday- Letter J

This week on Tag Tuesday we are on letter J.
For my tag I used images from The Graphics Fairy taken from an old cookery book of the 1860s by Mrs Beeton. The original pictures were of desserts which I converted to jellies. 
The large one has been coloured with acrylic inks and collaged. For the smaller ones round the edge I found a way of recreating the translucence of jelly using tracing paper and acrylic ink. The background is handmade Indian paper, painted with yellow ink, maybe to suggest custard? Or just because the yellow was a good background colour.
