ZVA Creative April DT Blog Hop

ZVA Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our April blog hop! We are excited and happy you are joining us and look forward to sharing our new work with you!

Today's blog hop begins at ZVA Creative's Facebook Page! 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 colors groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that selll ZVA HERE.
Here is my project to share with you all today.


This layout is created using tons of new releases by ZVA Creative during this last Winter CHA. It is also a layout created using Swirlydoos April kit, "Hello Beautiful".


In the close-up above, I've painted an acrylic frame by Clear Scraps with Art Anthology's velvet and sorbet and later, used some new ZVA Creative's flourish crystals to decorate on its sides.


I've painted the flowers, the birds, wooden embellishment and butterflies using velvets and add a little sparkle to them with sorbets. In the middle of each flower, I've added a mini flower crystal by ZVA Creative.


To create the background, I've used some mascils by Clear Scraps and some colorations by Art Anthology. The twigs and title are stamps by Vilda Stamps.

ZVA Creative supplies used:

CRW-06CA-112 (Flourishes - Ice Blue crystal), CRS-06CA-119 (Flourish- Ice Blue crystal), CRW-06CA-153 (Mini Flowers - Ice Blue crystal)
 
If you would like to play along with our design team, 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, April 29th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, April 30th.
 

***Prizes***

Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 1st on ZVA Creative's Facebook Page. We will try our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to ZVA'a blog on Wednesday to see if you are the winner!

We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! To increase your chances of winning:

* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products. If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.

*Hop over to Zva's facebook page and "like" our page or leave a comment there to tell us that you stopped by.

The Blog hop begins here at ZVA Creative's Facebook Page. Your next stop is Jennifer Synder. Enjoy!
