ZVA Creative DT Blog Hop (Inspiration Layout)



Happy New Year to you!  Welcome to Zva Creative December blog hop!
 
Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way).
 
As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings of pearls, flowers and crystals. If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
 
For those of you who are first time visiting my blog, I'm Irene Tan from a far away country, Malaysia. I'm a new member to the team. My style....hmmm......I think you all should judge that by yourself after looking at my project below. I can be colorful and clean but sometimes, I love to get all dark and grungy. Combining tons of different elements and textures to a project is what I love to do!
 
 
The pattern papers on this layout is by 7 Dots Studio. On the sides of the canvas banner, I've used two beautiful pearl brads by ZVA Creative.
 
On this layout, I've used several mediums by Art Anthology to color it. I've used some colorations with a brick wall mask to create the background and some sorbet to add colors and textures to the chipboard, metal and layout.
 
 
I've used some flourishes smoke crystals by ZVA Creative to add curvy shapes and blings into the design. I've also used stamps by Vilda Stamps on this layout.
 
ZVA Creative Supplies Used:
 
BRBK-02CA-103(pearl brads), CRW-05CB-103(flourishes-smoke crystal), CRS-05CB-103(flourish-smoke crystal)
 
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!
The Blog Hop starts today, December 31st and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 1st.

Your lay-out is totally awesome, Irene! I love the bricks and the grungy colours. I can always recognize your lay-outs from a mile distance :)

A really creative layout. I love it. The hardness of the bricks and steps with the softness of the flowers and flourishes work so well together. Hope you have a happy and inspirational 2013. Happy New Year!

I am just blown away by how gorgeous this piece is. The texture is amazing...that brick wall!!!! And, I love the way you strung that banner from side to side, drawing my eye right to the photo. The swirl gems beneath make such an impact. Beautiful, beautiful work!

What a wonderful layout! Love the banner running across the top and the canvas banner anchored with pearl brads that ties it together along the side. LOVE the unusual techniques you've used - particularly the brick wall (soooo cool)! And, of course, the bling is delightful! Thanks for sharing. (And, congratulations on making the team.)
