Combining a photogram and a photograph

I wanted to make a combined photogram and photograph to see if I could. I wanted to combine lace with a portrait of my daughter. I put lace over the paper and glass over that to hold it flat, then exposed the print as normal. I had to burn in the lace slightly afterwards. Unfortunately the focus on my source image is a little soft and the negative needed cleaning, but I can see that it works as a concept.

    Softer focus suits very well here I think especially when combined with the lace. Is it possible to retouch her left eye – maybe there was a scratch or mark on the negative.
