    Great vid. Images said a lot, but I couldn't read the text, background conflict. If you were to put a background behind the text, opaque, or semi=transparent, it could be of help. - bri <3

    This is great! I love this tutorial, but I'm having a really hard time reading the text. This would be even more helpful as a step-by-step tutorial with the pictures you already have and the text written out as steps. Really great work!
