Damask and Boys

It's time for new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and our optional twist is to use Damask or Fleur de lis in your design! 

I started with this delightful image, Boy with Boat, from Morgan's Artworld.  I love this era of art and thought this would make the perfect journal with coffee stained paper inside!  

Now, I'll admit, this one took me a while to color.  It was a weekend project, but great fun and a real challenge.  I was pulling all sorts of Copic colors and using glazing techniques, strange color combos, and just had fun!

The damask paper from DCWV covers cereal box panels.  I used washi tape on the spine for decor as well as twine to hold my paper in place.  The typed paper is retired from CTMH.  I made the journal tag as a print and cut in Design Space and embellished with some eyelets from We R Memory Keepers.  

Which do you like:  damask or fleur de lis?  Come share with us at Twisted Thursday!
