PGC #12 - Mesh Bags

Now here is a challenge - use a mesh bag you get from things like fruit at Costco and use it in a creation.  Charity at The Paper Girls Challenge really threw one at us.  Not an easy challenge, but one that I was excited to try - and what a great way to upcycle.

I had some green mesh from some watermelons and yellow mesh from the packaging of some sand toys (that I had to save from hubby throwing out!) and I thought it would be perfect with the Ted Drews cup.  I went through a few incarnations of this yellow and green combo - from a braid to a twist - until I finally settled on the layered look.  I also think My Mind's Eye Kraft Funday's muted colors also played off the bright colors of the cup and mesh. 

And a huge thanks to for a great Pearl 2 MWM sketch!  I couldn't do these pages without you.


After I sent the picture to Charity for The Paper Girls Challenge's blog, I repositioned the journaling and outlined a few things.  Here is the new and "improved" LO.

  1. Kristina what a fabulous and creative layout! I really like the updated photo the journalling block stands out more now.

  2. The first looks awesome, but I love how outlining really just popped it off and finished the page.
