Tangle of the Week - Nebel (take 2)

I recently received this email:

Hi Sandy,
I have the yoga for your brain tangle cards. Right now I'm trying to do "Nebel" and having a hard time with the beginning steps. I was wondering if you could do more of a step out for me. I just can't seem to get it right.

I'd appreciate it and enjoy reading all your newsletters.



I forwarded the request to my Minion, Bonnie, and she said she couldn't do that one either. That made me think that there might be quite a few people who don't "get it."

OK - I actually needed an excuse to use my new video setup! Ian, my fabulous App guy, had sent me a very cool grippy-bendy-tripod and instructions on how to film myself drawing tangles really fast... all using just my iphone. (Thanks again Ian!) It would be much faster and easier than drawing and posting step-outs.

I have found it easier to draw Nebel if you turn the tile as you work and start by drawing all the center lines, horizontally and vertically. It starts out looking like a slightly wonky Cadent!

Hope this video helps!


  1. Ooooh I'll have to watch that again! Love it!

  2. Thank you so much Sandy. I'll keep on doing it till I get it right.

    Hugs. ��

  3. Thank you, Sandy. I had figured out the tile turning by hadn't realized the grid pattern. I'll have another assignment for you soon. It was great seeing it bigger than life on You Tube expanded to full screen.

  4. Applause! I've posted on FB and will also put it in my travel blog.

  5. Thank you, Sandy! Love your new camera/phone set up! I'd love to know what tripod thingy you used. The video was great! Your art is always so beautiful...

  6. Thank you for this great video (and does your app guy have a friend or family in Europe? ;) )

  7. Awesome awesome awesome - when you start to give classes on the Internet, make sure you sign me up. And, please don't limit your classes to Zentangle . . .

  8. Didn't help me. First two-three steps were fine, but when you started drawing all the lines it went too fast. Can't tell if you're drawing them over or under the original line and where the beginning and end points are.

  9. love this post! i was able to pick it up after watching it thank you, thank you, thank you...

  10. I was lost too. Way too fast for this old brain to follow, lol!

  11. So beautiful, Sandy. Thanks for sharing the video. It was very helpful. Linda E.

  12. Try rotating your iPhone 90 degrees so you're shooting in landscape mode. You know how tangles are done on square format tiles? Well, video is a horizontal aspect ratio. Vertical videos do not reveal as much detail.
