Salacious

Salacious is featured as design 66 at my Youtube channel: BeatnikBlends

This design was really fun to make. I recently set up iTunes on my new computer. I was able to access all the songs I purchased in the past, over 100 songs. I haven’t listened to most of these songs in years! I created a playlist and began to work on this design and it was awesome. Music is awesome! I love it!

Salacious is part of my Valentine’s day theme. I’m creating all red designs from February 1st to the 14th. All designs will have one a word title, expressing a meaning of red in my eyes. I think Salacious can definitely be associated with red. When I finished the design, I was thinking about luscious or a word similar to something that is very sexual and bold. I think salacious is perfect because I think colors I used appear kind of lustful and seductive.

There’s lots of dark red in this design. It’s funny because towards the end I found a great blend but it was orange. So I spent an extra 30 minutes trying to find the perfect red to use. I loved this journey because I found so many shades of red that I absolutely love. I made several variations of the design.

I hope you enjoy the music video. The song featured is from the album New 9.0 on freemusicarchive.org. I mentioned the album in the last blog post and I have to say it’s an awesome album.
