Weekly challenge #109

I, too, was quite taken with the 'bump' Striping effect recently presented on the Zentangle blog. I had tried it with basic black and white stripes, but I loved what some others had done with wrapping another tangle around the bumps! Amazing! I decided I should try it.
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Crescent Moon, Lamar, Tripoli, and 'bump' Striping
Tangles: Beadlines, Black Pearlz, Künstler, 'bump' Striping

In the end I was quite wimpy at putting other tangles in the bands and didn't try anything very fancy.

UPDATE: A second challenge this week was to think of names for this tangle/technique.  Cheryl Rotnem suggested 'Roman' and I suggested 'Alanancy'. Maria combined the two into the new name Romanancy, which is how this 'bump striping' will be known from here on in. Read about it on the Diva's blog here.

  6. Dear Wimpy,
    But, as always, you have created such elegant examples of the "bump striping". And I think that in order for this to "work" well, the tangles used should indeed be fairly simple. Just as you did them. I love them and have saved them.

    As everyone has been saying on the challenge this week...we HAVE to think of a name for this. It's more a technique than it is an actual pattern, however, which makes it interesting. I submitted the name "illusion" to the mix. It's what I have been calling it.

  21. Love the dimension you've achieved. I 'specially love the first one with the 'ridges' starting and stopping unexpectedly, yet you've given the endings/beginnings such fullness. Awesome.
