Tangle of the week: Umble

This week we’re going to look at a really tangly-looking Tangle, although of course it’s simpler than it sometimes looks. You can find the tutorial here.

And here’s my step out, which is looking surprisingly dull considering I drew it in the 26 degree Australian sunshine!

I draw the inner lines and fill them in first, then if I make a mistake or go outside the lines (as I did in the top right corner) then I can just draw the auras to fit the mistakes so it looks like it’s meant to be that way!

I drew this example very square and went with the top, sides, and bottom next, but as you can see from the website example you can draw Umble lines wherever you want.

And add as many or as few layers as you want.

I stopped here, because I would stick/stamp a Happy Birthday in the space. I do like framing my sentiments with Tangles!

Umble works well with colour as well as black and white. My latest idea is to use a different colour for each layer, so it would look like rainbows separated into their different stripes.

What do you think of Umble? Would you like to see it in colour? Let me know in the comments!
