Artexting the ceiling

Hi guys,
I have a ceiling where there is a joint on a sloping ceiling. I have taken the scrim paper off as it was old and falling off. I have put PVA on a new netted scrim tape and instead of skimming a thin layer of plaster over it I have used a layer of artex. I am going to put another thin layer of artex on it and wait for it to dry then PVA it again then add a final stipple coat.
Am I right in my procedure..???
AM I doing anything wrong??

Please can any one help me??

I'd never text a ceiling, complete waste of time
