Scrapping out Loud

I made this first layout for the challenge over at Scrapping out Loud. The challenge was to use a rub on directly on your photograph. It's a technique that I've loved to do for a long time. I just love what it adds to the photograph. And "Who is that adorable child?", you may ask? Why. me of course! This is a layout of my childhood trip to Germany to visit my maternal grandparents. This layout I made for Vintage Plum last week. The paper for both of these layout is Prima's Nursery Tales. I really adore the paper, but find it really hard to work with. You know when you get in that magical zone when the layouts just make themselves practically? Well, this paper doesn't do it for me. I think I just really love dramatic contrasts and this is just more ...not contrasting. LOL Thanks so much for looking! Have a super sweet day!
