Weekly Weather: Thunderstorm

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Thunderstorm (also known as an electrical storm, lightning storm, or thundershower, is a storm characterized by the presence of lightning and its acoustic effect on the Earth’s atmosphere, known as thunder.)

Weekly Weather: Sun

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Sun (the star that is the central body of the solar system, around which the planets revolve and from which they receive light and heat: its mean distance from the earth is about 93 million miles (150 million km), its diameter about 864,000 miles (1.4 million km), and its mass about 330,000 times that of the earth; its period of surface rotation is about 26 days at its equator but longer at higher latitudes.)

This year I went with SUNflowers! I found so many images I couldn’t resist.

Weekly Weather: Snow

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Snow (atmospheric water vapor frozen into ice crystals and falling in light white flakes or lying on the ground as a white layer).

Weekly Weather: Sleet

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Sleet: a form of precipitation consisting of ice pellets, often mixed with rain or snow.

For this effort I found some moving photos of Japanese Snow Monkeys in a Nat Geo mag. The monkeys bathe in the warm waters during freezing weather and are able to survive winter. The combination of cold air and warm water lulls them to sleep and I love the photos of their serenity even during harsh days. Would that I could learn from them.

Shoe Collages

A while back a friend sent me some collage material (thank you, Ellen!) and included in the treasure box was a day-to-day calendar featuring designer shoes. So, I’ve started a series of shoes reimagined and will be sharing some with you today and in the future.  The collages are images of shoes, an imagined drawing, crayon coloring and other found images. 

These collages are a part of the Color Your World Challenge 2018 so you will see them again!!
