Tonic Studios – Verona Creative Storage Project



Hi Everyone

Today’s project from MJ is from the Forever Moments range by Tonic Studios and she has loved doing it!

Verona 2 Nov 14

You get the complete kit to make your Verona Unit including pictorial instructions which make it so easy to put together and the Creative Storage Adhesive – a good quality glue with a grab fast action.

Once MJ had built the unit and the drawers (which are part of the kit) it was time to play and decorate it.  She used the Decorative Paper Pack – Forever Vintage which contains 20 unique double-sided 150gsm papers.  There are so many designs to choose from she was stuck as to which ones to go for.  After thinking about it for lots of minutes (!) MJ decided to go along the masculine route choosing the gorgeous clocks and keys designs.

First she painted the Verona in Olive Green acrylic paint from the Nuvo Collection.  She applied 2 –3 coats leaving each layer to dry in between.  She then painted the inside and outsides of all drawers.  Once all the paint was dry MJ cut and layered the Vintage design papers onto the project using the Pure Matt Adhesive from the Forever Moments range.

Next was the handles.  She loves these so much as they are simply attached with brads.  The handles are solid metal and are a good weight – very good quality.  MJ used two sets of the Bureau Handles.  Then she added some metal embellishments from her stash and added gold highlights on all edges of the Verona unit using the Gilding Blush in Gold Leaf.
