Blissful layout

When I saw the inspiration board in Jot magazine I immediately knew what paper I am going to use for my page - Cottage Farms by Pink Paislee. Once I chose the paper and the picture  I started looking for a good sketch and found one in Once upon a Sketch blog.
This time around I played a little with modeling paste and sprays. Can you guys give me any advice on how to prevent my pages from warping from all those mediums? I used to strategically make all my mixed-media style pages on watercolor paper or some MME pages, which are almost as thick and warping was minimal. On regular scrap pages I really don't like the warping. Is there a way to avoid it or do I just have to let it go and live with it? 

Когда я увидела подборку в журнале Jot я точно знала, какую бумагу использую для странички - Cottage Farms от Pink Paislee. Фотку быстренько подобрала, осталось найти скетч, и он нашелся в блоге Once Upon a Sketch.
Сегодня немного поиграла спреями и пастой. Не совсем довольна результатом, потому что бумааг сильно коробится и не разглаживаться. Раньше я очень стратегически делала миксмедийные странички на акварельке или старых наборах от ММЕ, она почти тоже акварелька. Но я смотрю многие используют обычный скрап кардсток для таких работ и решила опробовать, но как то не срастается. Есть какие то секреты? Поделитесь пожалуйста? Или надо просто смириться?

 

 My daughter is totally addicted to horses (well, animals in generally, but horses especially). May be next year we'll have to find some riding classes for her and my son (he is also into horses and dragons too, but I don't think we can find any of those, luckily). I really love this picture because I think it shows emotions more than anything else - love, tenderness, friendship, understanding, compassion - this moment is pure bliss.

  3. Lovely, lovely background work! And that photo....it shows her love, for sure! A hint..this works a treat & I got it from Zeneva over at Scrap Friends.....once you have completely finished your page, turn it over & paint with gesso....just as normal. Once it's dry, you'll find your page is straight again!!! It works PERFECTLY:):)
