Diva's Weekly Challenge 313: Happy Amanda Day!

This week's challenge is to honor our mother Earth, or Amanda, as the Diva's adorable son Artoo says. What a great challenge! As I write, my dearest Lar is on a bus coming home from the Climate March in Washington, where over 200,000 American earthlings showed their love for the planet. (I'm so proud of him. He left at 3:30 a.m. this morning. 5-hour trip, one-way. I'm hoping it will not be longer coming home! 93 degrees Fahrenheit, 34 Celsius. 8 hours standing, marching, chanting, carrying a banner for NC Climate Justice.)
My tribute to the earth was quite wimpish in comparison! I recycled a frozen pizza box to make my tile. Ta-da. ✊


(I like the color, texture and weight of the cardboard, and have decided that I'll use some of these in my classes to introduce white ink and white charcoal.)
On another note, I completed my first commissioned work this week, a monogram. Here are three versions. Do you have a preference?






Thank you, as always, for stopping by. Have an environmentally friendly week!

  1. I like your pizza box tile. The Purk looks really nice. I am drawn to the third monogram as the letter M stands out more boldly.

  4. I love your Diva tile! Cardboard is great for tangling, I've just discovered. I cut up a cat litter box and made several tiles. As I started to draw on one Aimee plopped herself down right on top of it๐Ÿ˜‰
    Your monogram pieces are lovely. The last one is stunning!
