I have to admit, the part of the lesson where she talked about colour theory in relation to shades and tones went right above my head, so I just winged it. I'm hoping a second viewing of her video will clarify a few issues, but I just couldn't wait to get started with this project. This is the type of painting style I might want to develop if I was ever to sell my art. It's "right up my street" so to speak.
I'm not at liberty to reveal intimate details of this technique, but I think I can show you the collage I started out with consisting of pieces of book pages, napkins, washi tapes and patterned paper.

Tam's put out a free time lapse video of a similar process - I've included a link at the bottom of this post.
Here's a link to Tam's free video to one of her similar projects:
