I needed some artistic focus and managed to eek this page out. I have to get more comfortable with making clusters. This one took way too long ;-) Once I masked the damask I did a linear burn. I kept trying to work around the color, which was nice and deep, but I realized that it was too dark. Once I lightened it the whole page changed. At least I know how to recreate it if I want!
