Sounds like a great idea to me, live inspired, although much trickier for me than that. This was a fun lesson, I enjoyed the textures and colors. I'm still trying to embrace the grungy glazing but I'm not there yet. Maybe I can find a lighter color to glaze with so that everything doesn't get so dark! Otherwise, I like this with all the textures, patterns and subtle colors which is a deviation from the lesson. Good for me! Also, this was the first time I used the Tim Holtz distress crayons to add some color back in and create a color wash on the top half of the pages. They were very easy to use and gave a great effect.
