As you can tell by the preview, there is no sound – no music or voice overs to distract you as you create.

All of the videos have on-screen directions to follow along.

Bonus: The on-screen directions are provided in a two-page PDF to download and print out for your convenience.

Eight videos range in length from one minute to just over seven minutes so you don’t get over whelmed with information.

This makes it easy to find your place and you don’t have to search for the information you want to review again.

Videos are done in real time. No fast forwarding or edited out parts. You will see the whole tile created in the actual time that it takes to create.
