There is now an added twist to our blog hops, YAY! As you know, Zva offers so many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was asked to share a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project.
The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, just follow along the blog path. 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 FIVE of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! Winners 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 today, January 24th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 25th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 26th 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.
And here's my Zva layout:
This month I'm showcasing Zva's collection of blue crystal flourishes and flowers which you can see on this layout. This layout came together quite easily for me. I used Sassafras' Mix and Mend collection, layering patterned paper and lots of embellishments on top of a gathered muslin base. I guess when I'm working with beautiful patterned papers, bling and flowers, it's easy to be inspired. :)
A bouquet of baby blue, peach and ivory Zva flowers layered with hand-crinkled seam binding and flowers cut out from the Sass patterned paper.
The beautiful blue crystal and pearl flourish from Zva.
A blue Zva crystal butterfly and a blue Zva flower amidst some crinkled seam binding, hand-dyed using Tattered Angels glimmer mists.
The title on a banner, strung together with some bakers twine.
Taking my cue from the Mix and Mend collection, I used lots of fabric on this layout - muslin, ric-rac, seam binding... and just layered them on.
