**ZVA Creative Sneak Peeks!!**


Zva Creative has come out with more of their beautiful single packets of flourishes, this time in new colours and finishes. Lot's of pearl flourishes in lovely shades, soft pink, steel-blue, summery-green, elegant taupe and much more! Here is a page I made using the steel-blue colour extra long flourish, I think they work equally well on masculine and feminine pages. I felt the pearly design in the dark blue reminded me of those ball key chains, so I added some grungeboard keys to the bottom instead of the usual blooms I like to put with my flourishes.

I got the finish on the keys and hinge accents by painting them black, then with some gold metalic paint and slightly rubbing off the gold before it dries. I also added some staples in a zig-zag design to give more of a masculine appeal to the page (this is a design element I first saw on one of Paulien Van der Bosh's pages....thanks Paulien!)........Here are some close-ups!.....




I'm also loving the new pearly pink flourishes! Theres a very pretty medium size flourish and again a lovely longer length pearl flourish, I used both on this page. Also new, are the pretty medium size roses, I like them layered with their sik flowers. Here is a l/o I made using these new products (it's another pic from a calendar I made of my girls when they were babies, this one is Chloe as a Rose-baby .....
I like to use foam pop-dots when I cut out bits of patterned paper like the rose design her (Zva also makes the pop-dots!)....here are some close-up pics....




And finally here is a page I made up with a photo I took at the cottage last year. Canada is so beautiful in the Summer and Winter. I chose these blue/green watery colors for my blooms to go with the river in the photo. All flowers, large pearl brads and flourishes in this page are by Zva Creative.





The CHA is only a couple weeks away! If you are fortunate enough to be able to attend the show make sure you check out the Zva Creative booth and check out the rest of the DT's work! If you want to see these products in stores near you, don't forget to ask your local store owners to check out the ZVA booth!
