Memo That....Feel Distress With Stampendous

 Are you feeling stress...well how about making a fun Memo Box to help distress your life a bit.
 Begin by die cutting your box out from mat board. 
Spraying box pieces with Memories Mist, allow pieces to dry.
 Stamp randomly with Fiesta Stamp and black ink.
 Paint first with mix of 2 parts DecoArt Media Ultra Varnish to 1 part Paynes Grey. Dry
Paint with Quincridone Gold. Dry
Form Box
 NOW... to form flower.
First spray mixed media paper with Memories Mists, dry. 
 Paint with Paynes Grey to form streaks across paper, dry.
 Stamp image to prepared paper with black ink.
 Paint over stamped image with Quincridone Gold and more of the Paynes Grey to achieve the color.
 Fussy cut prepared images out.
While damp, roll into balls.
 Shape into flower pieces. Layer together and allow the flower to dry.
 Add enamel piece to center of flower.
Place on prepared box.
Add pretty bow.
 Place memo pads in box along with a couple of pens.
