I won this bicycle at a display house lottery a couple of years ago but have only ridden it once or twice (it's a bit small for me ;-) and the tyres are flat). It's called "oritatami jitensha" in Japanese, which means folding bicycle - I call it my "origami jitensha".
Fortunately, I still had a packet of melon jelly, which I made and didn't eat before taking the photos.
I used a couple of layers to try to make the jelly look greener (it's pretty pale in real life). One layer at 31% opacity, adjusting saturation; same with layer 2, 50% opacity, but I put it in as an overlay. I don't know what it means, but it looked better when I combined all the layers.
