Zva Creative January DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to join us for our first Design Team Blog Hop of the New Year! We are happy to have you join us today and wish you the best for 2012!

The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's NEW blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! 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 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. If you like what you see you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
The colors chosen for me were whites and creams. Since I didnt have any cream colored flowers, I added the next color up the color wheel. Browns. The browns are warm and beautiful . I used my Martha Stewart Wild Flowers punch around the page set on a white piece of card stock. I then painted the whole piece with gesso. I used a Layers Of Color stencil on all 4 corners using Glimmer Mist and sprayed a little of blue randomly around the page. I did the same on a smaller piece of white cardstock, but this time sprayed the blue on while the gesso was still wet, and brushed the color across the page. I then matted both pieces on a blue piece of card stock. The gesso on the textured Bazzill card stock looks and feels like canvas. I love the effect.


I chose the large Zva flower FL 04CA 107 and paired it with the smaller white Zva flower FL 04CA 128 and brown flower FL 04CA 126. The smaller elegant rose buds [FLBK-03CB-145] and the sweet roses [FLBK-03CB-133] were used on the ends of the flower cluster. I mixed in leaves[FL-04CA-114] and tucked them under the floral spray. I did touch the sweet roses with a bit of soft brown ink.

This is the Thriving Pearl/Crystal [PEB-03CB-114] in champagne. So elegant!!

Just another closeup of the flower cluster.

This piece, Fantasia, [PEB-03CB-114] comes 2 to a pack. I used the lighter one of the 2 once again in champagne.


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!
Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! 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 30th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 31st.
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 1st on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Zva's blog as well. 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 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.
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 NEW blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!
The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's NEW blog. Your next stop is the fabulously creative Nicole Martel. Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us!
P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on February 27th for our next Zva blog hop!
