Weather Alert!

I know, spring is around the corner and there is no weather alert to be seen. But since we ive in Connecticut we've seen so many weather alert, some of them for not much if you ask me (I grew up in Quebec, Canada, so I've seen worst), so I decided to make a page about the biggest storms we experience since living here.

Here are some details shots:

I cut my title directly in a 12x12 card stock with my Sihlouette and backed it with some pattern paper. One half red, and the other blue.

The first snow storm was in January 2011 when we were living in Farmington. I backed the picture with some rub-ons and a little bit of watercolor. I added some snowflakes and red stars and a tiny tag.

Second thing that happened was our basement that was flooded during hard rain for several hours and a lot of snow melting at the same time. 
Here again some watercolor as a background and I also added a stamp that I stamped in red, some washi tape and some rub-ons that mimic water.

The camera was stamped with staz-on ink on a sheet of plastic and I fussy hand cut it.

Third event: Hurricane Irene.
I backed the picture on watercolor and added some leaves that I stamped and embossed in white on green paper.

Fourth event: Snowstorm Alfred
Watercolor paint, washi tape...

Fifth event: Hurricane Sandy, we left Ct.
The same red stamped image to back the picture and the snowflakes are here too.

And the last event was the big snowstorm we had in february.
The red behind my picture is a rub-on. I also added a tag that I embossed with white glitters.

The photos are all mounted in a circle on some silver thread.
For this layout I was inspired by my Art Class with Wilna Furstenberg
It's a wonderful class and if you are looking to learn some new techniques or even only to refresh the techniques you already know, Wilna's class is a GREAT SOURCE OF INSPIRATION!! I love it to pieces!!!!

Talk to you soon!
I promise to show you some Project Life layouts very soon!! ;)

Ah oui, le CT est malheureusement célèbre pour sa météo capricieuse ! Je me rappelle d'Irène : je venais juste de rentrer en France de mon stage de 3 mois à Yale et tous mes amis américains mettaient des nouvelles sur FB...C'était impressionnant !
Très belle page, super d'avoir réussi à mettre autant d'infos sans pourtant nous donner une indigestion !
Bisous !
