The Zva Designers are joining together again today to share a project that we have created using some of our favorite Zva Creative products. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a little bit of fun again this month!
The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog: Paper Hugs . 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, 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 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ... YAY! Those blogs 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 now and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, September 28th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 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.
For today's project, I created this layout using Zva Creative's new range of crystals and flowers. Aren't they just gorgeous?! I just love, love, love these new products from Zva!
The layout is titled 'What Dreams May Come', and to begin, I would say this layout is about layers, textures and details.
Firtsly, I used lots of pop-up dots for dimension, with the photo actually being propped on a double layer of pop-up dots.
Then, for some texture, I used netting behind the mounted photo instead of the usual patterned paper.
And for some detailing and even more textures, I played with my paper punches ...
... and then added some laces to the bottom of the photo.
I then embellished the layout with some floral cut-outs, and these beautiful flowers and crystals from Zva Creative.
So, the blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes' blog - Paper Hugs
And your next stop for more inspiration is here: Angelica Franssen's blog - Angelica's Scrappenings
