Fun pattern! It has lots of scope for play, with depth and interest as the eye is drawn in.
So I started by playing with it, and made a lot of bijou monotangles.
In the first one, the shiny black ribbon in the corner dominated too much. The eye couldn't wander away from it.
I enjoy how pliable this pattern is. It can be like a pile of ribbons, or it can be tubular. You can fill each one with a pattern itself (I enjoyed going all ononmato on it)...and my favorite is the white one with the stippling for shading. LOVE that effect!
But then I decided to make a piece using umble as PART of it, and made a sketchbook page full.
And when I saw all the white space on the right, I thought of putting some of my umble bijous there, but they were not in proportion so....I sketched some smaller-than-bijou tiles along that right margin, and filled with my favorites.
