Zva Creative June Monthly Project No.3

I've been so busy with life, that I haven't had a chance to share this layout with you. Titled: One Fine Day. I created this as combined DT assignment for both Zva Creative and Helmar. I don't usually combine my assignments, but I've been busy with the purchase and set-up of my new store, my daughter having her 9th birthday party, and coming down with another nasty cold/flu that has left me bed bound for a couple of days. I did my Helmar post a couple of days ago. You can find the details here.

I didn't have any red rhinestones to match the red rhinestone flourish, so I simply coloured them with a red copic pen. I love that I can colour the Zva Creative clear rhinestones to any colour, to match any layout. Pure genius!!!

The rhinestone flourish was originally too large, so I simply cut it into smaller pieces. The chipboard frames were black, so I covered them with gesso, then brown paint. Once dry, I coated them with Helmar Crackle Medium (steps 1 and 2). The chipboard bracket was also black. Again, I coated it with gesso and brown paint. Once dried, I coated it with Helmar Acid Free Glue, and sprinkled it with brown glitter.

Zva Creative products used: rhinestone flourish (CR-04CA-105); rhinestones (CR-01CB-101 and CR-02CB-101); felt flowers (FL01CB115 and FL01CB117); and 1/8" rhinestone brads (BRBK02CA102).


Thank-you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog. I appreciate it, and I love reading your comments, each and every one.
