Graphite flowers

Yesterday the storm/hurricane Bodil hit Denmark, and we still have a pretty hefty storm. Around five in the afternoon yesterday our private wind mill messured 51,8 meters/second in blows = 183,6 kilometer per hour, so that is truly hefty. We had minimal damage, but it was scary at one point.
Da Bodil i går var på sit højeste her, målte vores huststandsmølle 51,8 m/sek. = 183,6 km/t i stødene, så der var knald på lige omkring kl. 17. Vi er sluppet med minimal skade lader det til, men hvordan ser det ud, hvor du bor?
The base color is Chanel Graphite 529, se it HERE, and after debating with myself what to paint, I painted a floral French with acrylic craft colors. The top coat is Seche Vite.
Grundfarven er Chanel Graphite 529, se den HER, og efter at have diskuteret lidt med mig selv om hvad jeg skulle male, blev det en fransk manicure med blomster malet med akrylfarve. Toplakken er Seche Vite.

    You've worked so well here that at first sight the flowers seem to be water decals, amazing! :)

  4. I'm glad everything is fine on your end! I think they said that 180km/h was like the fastest winds they expected?! Crazy that you actually measured that! I'm pretty much in the middle of Germany and it was still quite bad. Couldn't sleep because of the howling, haha...

    1. Yes, it was so interesting to follow the wind rise safely in front of my lap top LOL - I have a terrible time sleeping too, when the wind is strong like that - also because I NEED an open window when I sleep LOL

    The worst damage around our house was the bins being thrown around in the yard, so that's ok, I guess :)

  13. And in Sweden the storm was named Sven, and it was windy in the south, but where I live it was just wind ... and some snow. :-)

    Your combination is just beautiful! Christmas flowers! :)

  15. "Mother Nature" gives us also very beautiful things, but can also be so cruel sometimes; maybe she wants to make us appreciate also some small things that we start to appreciate after scarry storms... I'm glad to hear you're OK :-)
    I love the base and the flowers! :-)

    1. That is so true - but thinking of the countries where entire areas are wiped out, where people were struggling to survive from poverty even before the hurricane, it is difficult to think that way for me :)
      Thanks a lot Tanja, I'm glad you like it :)
