Zva Creative September DT Blog Hop

The Zva Designers are joining together again today to share a project that we have created using some of our favorite Zva Creative products. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a little bit of fun again this month!

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating incase there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way. Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! Those blogs will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.

The Blog Hop starts now and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, September 28th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 29th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog as well (linked above). We will
do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday...plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Zva Blog Hop post...you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. The more times you leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.


Here's a Zva Creative layout I created recently:


I used 7 Gypsies' Conservatory papers and paired it up with some beautiful blue flowers from Zva Creative. I also added some green Zva crystal flourishes for a little movement in this nature-inspired layout.


Some close-ups:


I cut out the plant and birds from the patterned paper and layered it on some paper whose edges I had carelessly torn and curled. The brown lace was originally pristine white before I misted it with My Tattered Angels chalkboard glimmer mist in Hot Chocolate.



A close-up of the Zva flowers and crystal flourish.


Your next stop is here: Ingrid Danvers

Thank you so much for joining us.

Flowers - Zva Creative bulk flowers
Patterned Paper - 7 Gypsies Conservatory Collection
