ZVA Creative July DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our July blog hop! We are excited 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!

Here's a list of participants (in case there is a glitch along the way):

As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color 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 sell Zva HERE.
Here is my project to share with you all today!
This is a mixed media layout where I've used tons of mediums to create. To create this layout, I've used 7 Dots Studio's "Love Is In The Air" collection with beautiful crystal flourishes and brads by ZVA Creative.
For the background, I've used white gesso with some colorations and sorbet by Art Anthology for masking. The chipboard piece used on this layout is by Dusty Attic. I've painted it with velvet.
The mask and acrylic gears on this layout is by Clear Scraps. I've covered the acrylic gears with tons of texture paste and velvets. I've deco the gears with crystal flowers by ZVA Creative.
I've added some sweet flowers by Petaloo on this layout.
Check out how the blings from the crystals and brads enhanced this mixed media layout.
ZVA Creative Supplies used:
BRBK-02CA-101 ( Crystal Brads 1/4" Mix (A) - clear/yellow/lime/blue ), CRW-06CA-148 ( mini flowers - clear crystal ), CRB-05CB-103 (Flourish - Smoke 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, July 29th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, July 30th.


Hidden on FIVE of the designer'sblogs 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, July 31st on Zva Creative's Facebook page! We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday to see if you are a 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.
The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's Facebook page! Your next stop is Carole Maurin. Enjoy!

Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Our next blog hop will be on August 26th! Please mark you calendar, we would love for you to join us again!
