Debi Ryan : DT Challenge

Debi here, excited to be posting my first official post showcasing something new  for the DT challenge, which contained a fair few goodies!

I have to confess, these colours and papers wouldn't of been part of my normal choices, but that's what makes a challenge, right?

I made 2 things; first up a 12 x 12 LO.

To soften and grunge the red, I  added some white paint - heavily stencilled on, this softened the red but also added some extra texture.

I've then distressed, layered and added gold paint to highlight and frame the photo. Finally adding the pretty flowers and the pretty bits and bobs, including some extra ones I made with some of the red cardstock from the kit.


I do love grunging things up a bit, so to tone down the colours of the flowers they got similar treatment as the paper, some white acrylic paint and then some glitter.

There was still quite a bit of paper left, so I just quickly through together this little kraft gift bag, some some of the scraps. Easy to do, but I think very effective.

I had fun creating these 2 creations, I hope that you are all enjoying the last days of Summer, until next time, Debi x


  1. I love the flowers and the layering - I so need to learn how to do that - your wonderful designs have beautiful depth.

  2. Very nice layout - lots happening but not too fussy. Looking forward to seeing more ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. Love it... Love how you have "toned" down the brightness

  4. Love what you've done with this Debi.
