The Humble Umble

This week the Zentangle newsletter was about Umble, one of the original tangles but one whose step-out had never been posted. Until now! So I was not surprised when the Diva challenge this week was to use Umble as at least part of our tile. I chose to do mine as a monotangle in a sort of Meer meets Umble mashup. I worked on it at a meeting this morning and had a nice time listening to the meeting and Zenning away (is that a word?).



Over at the Facebook Group Stacked & Tangled there is a new ATC swap starting up. I've always wanted to do one of these so I decided to jump in and give it a go. Here are my first 6 (I need 20 in total).

  2. I'm really liking the variations, including yours, that people are coming up with for their Umbles. Sounds like you have your work cut out for you for the ATC swap. Do they give you any direction in terms of tangles or colors or do you just do what you want to?

    1. Other than staying within the groups "stacked and tangled" thesis anything goes! I have a string that I've been sort of obsessed with so plan on using it (or variations of it) for all of the ATCs.

  3. Unusual interpretation of Umble. I think it is clever to think up new variations, it is all I can do to draw tangle patterns as per step outs.
