Zva Creative Pearls 'n things!!


I had a little time this weekend to play with some of my Zva Creative goodies. I wanted to go for a very feminine soft effect on this layout so I went for the beautiful 'pearl' embellishments by Zva Creative. I love that that package offers you multiple sizes of adhesive 'pearls' from large to medium to tiny.

The BasicGrey papers I used had a lacey fabric feel to them so I went with it and made a 'pillow' by cutting out a partial circle of pink cardstock. Then I lightly stamped the cardstock with a floral stamp in white ink (Colorbox pigment ink). Then I inked the outside edge with some chestnut chalk ink to give it rounded shadow. I then marked off a diamond pattern and used some watercolour pencils and drew some random 'stars' over the marked spots to create the tufted look. To finish it off I added the large Zva adhesive pearls, ran an edge of lace around the whole thing and a strip of pink Zva crystals. Here's a close-up......

I also used Zva pop-dots to raise the rose sticker up off the page an add a little dimension. The tiny paper roses and the silk roses and of course the pretty crystal flourishes are also made by Zva Creative. (these crystals flourishes are wonderful to work with, they have a nice rigid backing that holds their shape when you go use them) Here are a couple more close-ups.....



Thanks for having a peek!
