Forever Moments Verona Unit - Edna's cabinet


Hello and welcome to the blog.
Don't forget to watch the stunning Forever Moments MDF units from Tonic - on Create and Craft tonight at 8pm.

If you liked the Tivoli unit you are going to love the Verona.
It is a beautiful piece and has a gorgeous layout that you can vary to suit your needs.
I loved the size of the drawers - so useful for so many little treasures.

Verona MDF unit
Christmas papers
Trailing Blossom Floral die
Avante Deco drawer die set
Nuvo Gold metallic and olive green paint 
Forever Moments Matt adhesive for sealing the unit

Hearty paper clay for the bows
Katy Sue Bow Trio moulds, Oval Cameo and Frame 2
Gathered twig distress ink
Pearls from stash

A sideways view


The drawers without the die cut decoration have been crackled with Forever Moments Crackle base and Vintage Crackle top coat. When they had 'crackled' I rubbed over the surface with gathered twigs distress ink to show up the cracks a little more. 


For the die cut decoration on the other drawers I have used chipboard painted with the Nuvo Gold paint and triple embossed with clear embossing powder. As a bonus the embossing discoloured slightly here and there and gave me the perfect aged look without any more techniques being needed. I did rub over the surface with some black soot distress ink but it wasn't really necessary. 


I'm sure you will agree it is a beautifully decorative piece - I can't wait to make one with some of the new vintage papers also being launched today.

Don't forget to tune in for lots more ideas!

Have a great day.
