Sand the wood very well.

If you do not have a sander you can do it manually with sandpaper

When ready, use the masking tape around to protect the Wood.

Paint the wood with acrylic paint

Use the light blue, dissolve the paint before painting with a little water so that it is not too thick. We sanded after drying until we liked it as it was.

Cut a cloud in a paper and use the sponge to paint them

Place the paper on the dry wood. Then, with the sponge, take some white paint and see it giving small blows on it to make the clouds, repeat these actions several times with white, dark blue and light blue. He moves the paper with the other hand so that the clouds stay better and more realistic.

Wash the stones to paint the flowers

Before you begin to paint the stone flower, wash it well to make the paint look better.

Paint the stones with pink acrylic paint to create the petals

Paint with the brush at least a couple of layers, but let dry very well between layer and layer, otherwise, it will spoil you and you will have to start over. If that happens to you, do not worry, you can try to wash the stone and rub it with a scouring pad to repaint it. Make the details with a little white paint to make the petals glow or some shiny marker pens, remember they must be special for stones.

Once you have all the stones painted and dry, place them on the wood to know where to go to beat them, before you paste the petals, keep in mind that the stem should fit between them, first paste a point where it is not visible and then the other.
