The challenge is to use DAMASK:

For this challenge I reluctantly dug into the very special papers
that JELISSA MEI had sent me.
Her very own range! Stupid, isn't it, how we 'save' such things for 'special'?
This piece of gorgeous pp is now scrapped!!!!
The bit of lace below, holds a big tag of journaling in a pocket
behind the main photo. Extra photos are tucked in as well.
The butterfly/flower paper above [thanks Jasmine S!]was colored with markers. It was black & white.
Boring! You can also see the little purple epoxy round I made
myself with the clear sticker bubbles. [Thanks Sawyers Place!]

Above....LOTS of rub ons around the lady sillhouette. AND I used my
Tinby Metallic Melts. Heather McM would be proud of me!
Below are some words c/- Kaiser Craft -
layered over more stickers...
 Below shows more 'colouring in' of that bg pp from Jas S...
& I've used a couple of little 7 Dots Studio word stickers that 'fitted' the
occasion of Holly's Christening Day in NZ last year:
Below - my whole page where you can see I've stamped my
damask onto the background around the photo.
I've also used some mists to 'deepen' the colours already on
the paper:
Thanks so much for always being such supportive and lovely scrappy peeps!
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  7. How perfectly the doily echoes the ruffles on the flower..such a satisfying page to look at because of it

  8. Love your bokeh!! I still cant get it right when I try it! You've nailed it ... wow again with your calendar, you are sooooo going to be organised for next year! ( a great idea!) Lovely LO, totally love the silhouette lady and fab family pic!!

  15. Oh these are lovely Izzy, love how you do the Bokah effect.. and i have grown sweet williams before, a very pretty flower.. and love all the work you have done on your back ground on the layout.. special photo like that gets a special back ground.. love the cameo too.. I hope your week is going well.. too busy for me.... desperate for some scrapping time.. maybe next week will be slower .. i am hoping...

  16. I just want to crawl up inside your brain and stay there for awhile. I bet it is just a beautiful place. Great way to use those PL cards. I have some, but don't know what to do with them... Maybe I should just cut them up. And your second grungy distressed background page is awe-inspiring! Love that wistful sentiment you added.
