Step 15: Create the Background

In this step, we will be adding the sky and the other clouds. To start, let's open the stock image "Dark clouds - STOCK" by Supermalade-STOCK; once open, activate the Move tool (V) and drag this image to our canvas. Put this image below all the layers that we've made. The reason for that is for the sky would appear at the back of all the images that we would be putting.

Move and position it here:

Once the sky is on the canvas, rename it to "sky 1".

Activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) next and then resize "sky 1" as shown below:
