Diva Challenge #214 - Amanda Day/Earth Day (Round 4!)

What fun! This is my first time participating in an Amanda Day Diva Challenge. Credit for drawing the continents goes to my mom, since I can't "actually" draw worth a flip. Ah well, tangling's good enough for me! ^_^

Tangles used: (Starting at the top and going clockwise) Growth, Flux, Ansu, Opus, Aura-Leah, Pokeroot, Fescu, Maddie 2, Dyon, Ovy, Antidots, Pokeleaf, Zinger, Lazy Eights, Kelp, Garlic Cloves, Bunzo

Also - I'm going to try to keep up my tangle journal (though I might just switch to making sure I tangle every single day, the lines are pretty distracting and the paper isn't fun at all to draw on), but I'm probably not going to post what I do, since the results are almost always rushed and mediocre, and I'm really lazy and don't like taking a bunch of photos of work I'm not satisfied with. Oh well.

Also-make sure to check out my Tangleation Vocation Challenge here! Enjoy and be inspired! ^_^

  1. Daniel, I think you're probably going to win the award for using the most tangles in one challenge. Nice job. And kudos to your Mom for the continents. Brilliant.

  4. Hi Daniel. I really like your wreathe idea. All the different tangles remind me of all the different nations on the earth. It's very poetic! I am always eager to see your responses to the diva's challenges. Jill

  22. I would never say you can't draw, your tangles are lovely and your concept was inspired! Besides, I've been looking around and I think you're quite talented indeed, keep up the good work!
