Tuesday is Earth Day, or as Laura´s son, Chewie, has renamed it, Amanda Day! How lovely. Our challenge this week was to do something appropriate to mark this day.
Living in the country, as we do, I feel much closer to the Earth now than I have at other times of my life. We are busy planting trees and tending our bit of land. We're not quite as green as we might one day be, but we are striving to do our bit and to be as planet conscious as possible. For more information, visit the Earth Day website and see what you could do to make a difference.
I decided to be brave and embrace colour this week. I haven´t coloured my tangles but I did use a page that I prepared with colour, using my daughter´s gouache colours from Djeco. They´re gorgeous colours and I chose ones that resonated with the earth and the sea.
I loved doing this one so much and although drawing on the paint was a challenge at times, I´m pleased with the result of using colour in this new way for me. There´s no hidden significance to the tangles I chose. I just wanted to celebrate the day with something a little different for me. Let me know what you think, won´t you?
Thanks Laura aka I am the Diva (and Chewie) for such a great challenge. Make sure you check out all the entries as there are sure to be some fantastic ones this week.
And let´s all think seriously about our beautiful planet, not just tomorrow, but always.
