What a Mesh! at Frilly and Funkie

Hi everyone and welcome! Thank you for the wonderful response to my last post - it's one of my favourite projects to date and I'm thrilled you all seem to agree. Today I'm back as promised for the latest Frilly and Funkie challenge 'What a Mesh!' hosted by the amazing Pamellia Johnson. For this one she would like you to create a vintage or shabby chic project using any type of mesh (crinoline, cheesecloth, tulle, burlap, canvas etc).

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!


I decided to take a different approach to my Christmas cards this year, avoiding the traditional colours where possible and attempting a 'vintage' feel without the use of browns! You'll not be getting a rundown on this card as I've got a step by step tutorial for it coming this Friday next Tuesday. Needless to say there's mesh involved (I'm sure you can spot the gauze beneath the reindeer) layering and textures.


So that's my contribution to the Funkie side of the Design Team's inspiration for our 'What a Mesh!' challenge. Make sure you hop on over to the Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the other fabulous makes and find out how they've used mesh, by which time I'm sure you'll be ready to join in the fun with us and of course be in with a chance to win!

Thank you for joining me today. Remember I'll be back on Friday next Tuesday with a tutorial for this (and another!) card and some fantastic news if, like me, you're a fan of Distress Paints. And a quick heads up - I'll be back on your screens this coming Sunday with three mixed media shows on Hochanda at 2pm, 5pm and 9pm. Whatever you're up to for the rest of the week have a good one and take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
