Weekly Weather: Drought

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 Drought (a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall; a shortage of water resulting from this; synonyms: dry spell, lack of rain, shortage of water.)

For this week’s collage I used 3 pages, folding the middle page and elements on it. This resulted in a lot of surface to create and many different views. I was blessed to find plenty of drought images to cover the surface, which, like other weather types (sleet, hurricane, halo/sundog) are harder to find in magazines (my favorite source material). I could print images from the internet but I prefer the glossiness of printed pictures instead. As always, click on the image to bigify!!

 

Weekly Weather: Sun Dog

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 Halo (a circle of white or colored light around the sun, moon, or other luminous body caused by refraction through ice crystals in the atmosphere.); Sun Dog ( is an atmospheric phenomenon that consists of a bright spot to the left and/or right of the Sun.); and/or Light Pillar (an atmospheric optical phenomenon in the form of a vertical band of light which appears to extend above and/or below a light source).

I used magazine photos and black textured scrapbook paper ( I cut out individual flowers and highlighted with glitter pens). None of the images of the sun exactly meet the definitions of the topic; but, rather, my interpretation of it. However, I do like my sun dogs! (click on the image to biggify!)

 

 

 

 

Weekly Weather: SunShower

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. 

First up is Sun Shower. Don’t know what sun shower is? I call it ‘liquid sunshine’ – its where the sun is shining and raining at the same time! Here’s my interpretation of liquid sunshine…

Weekly Weather – Oops!

Today is the day I’m supposed do the Weekly Weather Post – the topic is Sun Shower. I created a collage for the topic and I really like it, yet here I sit at the library computer with no scan or photo of my collage on my flashdrive. Bummer. I’ll post it on Monday.

So, instead, you get more crayon collages! This time it’s fruity crayon colors. Enjoy but don’t eat the fruit. Click on the image to biggify.

 

Weekly Weather: Choose Your Own

This week’s Weekly Weather topic is “Choose Your Own.” I chose “Hot” because while making the other collage for Hot I ran across some really cool fire images and wanted to do a separate spread for that. This is also the last post on the original Weekly Weather calendar that started in Spring 2016. Next week starts the new scheduled posts. I’m looking forward to new Weekly Weather collages!!!

To remind you, I altered an atlas with the weather-themed collages. To see the other entries, please click on the page “Weekly Weather Challenge.” (I will eventually update the page with all the links!)  Click on the badge below to find out about how to join the challenge!
