Zva Creative and the Design Team welcomes you to join us this month for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special!
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, June 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, June 28th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 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 my Zva creation. To coordinate with my vintagey layout, I've decided to feature some beautiful brown crystals and flowers from Zva this month.
This photo was taken at Baker Street Station in London. I love the look of this tube station, with all its old brick walls, photos and general historical feel. To complement the photo, I used a brown and blue palette from Bo Bunny's Gabrielle line.
I ripped open the centre of the top patterned paper to create a frame for my matted photo, revealing glimpses of the Bo Bunny butterfly patterned paper beneath. The photograph was popped up using super thick dimensional foam dots.
The layout is embellished with Zva's lovely large brown blossom and a brown crystal flourish. I decided to let the crystal flourish float about half an inch off the raised photo. Journalling's on the small manila tags which have been inked and stamped to age them.
Popped-up butterflies layered high for more dimension, and lots of ripped edges.
