I combined a piece of pretty 13 arts patterned paper from the Faces of Spring collection with a variety of 13 arts Ayeeda mediums including: Gesso Acrylic Primer, 
Medium Acrylic Modeling Paste, 3D Glass Filler and Medium Acrylic Gel Medium:
For color, I used the following 13 arts Ayeeda Mists: Mist Chalk Blue Light, Mist Pearl Green and Pearl Turquoise Light:
Once the background was created, I embellished with a variety of 13 arts flowers: Fabric Flowers, White Twigs and 13 arts Twigs ornamental fruits decor:
