sagging ceiling

I recently removed a popcorn texture from bedroom ceiling. After sanding and wiping down surface I installed a primer. The primer kept coming off under the old tape joints. I remved the loose paint then used joint compound to smooth out the surface. After this was done I installed a texture useing joint compound watered down a little. I applied the mixture pretty heavy because we wanted a rough look. After a day or so we noticed that the ceiling was sagging a few places between the ceiling jocies. Any suggestions on what went wrong and how to repair. House was built in 1979 and the popcorn ceiling was origanal.
