I started with a plain piece of watercolor paper and did a wash in the yellow and light green colors. I took the brown and stamped a distress stamp around the border and added a bit more of the light green, a little bit darker.
Then I began working on the cluster with the photo. First I dripped teal ink to represent the rain. Next I dabbed distress ink through a flying bird stencil. Then I cut out clouds in polka dot teal vellum. I arranged them, but you really couldn't see the edges and they all blended in together, so I cut some clouds out of pale yellow cardstock. I still thought there wasn't enough definition, so I penned the outer edges in black. That did the trick. While I was at it, I cut a sun out of the same yellow cardstock. I pulled some wooden shapes; prisms, plane, geo tag, boats, and colorized them with ink. I cut the main title out of plain white cardstock from this really cool brush font, and inked it, trying to have darker and lighter areas. After arranging the above, I stamped the subtitle using distress ink. It ended up looking really watery, which was not a look I was going for, but fit perfectly. For the final touch, I added a propellor to the center of the sun. I created some lines for my journaling down in the bottom corner to give balance and added a starburst. I love that starburst.
