David Bowie tribute art journal page

I finally did it!! I decided to make a youtube video. For those of you who are already amazing youtubers, I stand and applaud you.  Oh my goodness, it takes a LOT of work to edit a you tube video. This one being my first is a bit rough, but I learned so much. I know how to make the next one even better. :) I must admit that there were times during the process that I thought to myself, Is it worth all this? Now that I have one completed and learned the ins and outs of the program, I can say oh heck yes!!

Here is the video:

I look forward to any constructive advice you wish to share with me.

 I wanted to include a list of the materials I used:
Arylic paint I just used the Apple Barrel brand in the following colors: Sunshine yellow, Tuscan orange, laguna, china blue
In the Lindey's I used Toto's Tornado black flat fabio
In the Prima color blooms I used : Sunshine, summer sky, iris, pressed petal, gilded, teal
In the Maya mists I used antique silver (not shaken)
In the Shimmerz  colorings a shade of gray
I used 13 arts splash multipurpose inks in the color gold, turquoise, and pink
I used Silks paints in the colors persimmon, teal zircon, black ice, and ice
I used my Sakura white gel pen and my Signo white gel pen to doodle the lyrics around the page.

Here is the same type of technique using gesso on the page before adding any sprays. I like it a lot. It was just not what I was going for that day.

Here is a close up of the texture you can achieve by using the silks paints.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will subscribe to my youtube page.
Have a great day!!
