Some Days All I Do Is Watch The Sky

Hi all

Finally got around to making a layout I've been meaning to make for a while. I've found I've got to be in the right mood to mess around with mixed media...

Whenever there's a beautiful sunset I like to instagram it... I like how the light comes through the clouds and how they contrast with the sky and how buildings are silhouetted by the sun... lovely.

To begin with I picked some colours from the photograph and painted areas of the page in those colours in watercolour. Over the top of this I added a bit of gesso. 
Once that was dry, I added patterned stamping. 
Most on the embellishments on here have been painted in the same watercolour as the background - the washi tape, the wooden shapes, the tags and the text. This really brings the layout together. 

The title is from a song I love called "Watch The Sky", by a band called Something Corporate.
It's here if you want a listen...

(I had to crop this really close as the paper had buckled a little with the paint... if anyone's got any tips on how to prevent this, leave a comment below!)

Thanks for stopping by!
