For this layout I used 49 and Market papers from their Heirloom Botanicals collections (a 12"x12" piece for the background while the die-cuts were made from papers in the 6"x 6" collection).

Heirloom Botanicals - The Patch
I did some stencilling on the background using molding paste. While the paste was still wet I embossed it with Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel in the Shabby Pink colour.
Here are the dies I used:
The Medallion and the decorative plate under the photo were made with molds and Sculpey Ultra Light and painted. I glued the 3 little flowers onto the plate before painting.

Assorted Flower Medallions 2
The medallion was painted brown. I then went in with a fine-tipped paintbrush and painted some of the petals of the flowers various shades of pink. I dry brushed over everything with white and sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Frostbitten Fuchsia Starburst Spray.
The decorative plate was sealed with matte medium and then coated with Distress Crackle paint in the Picket Fence colour. After that was dry I brushed it with Prima Parthenay Artisan Powder, wiping off the excess. I then misted the piece with the Frostbitten Fuchsia Starburst Spray. I also rubbed some white paint overtop with my fingertip to bring out the details more.
