On the street where I lived…
This is my final entry into the Canon Island challenge. The theme for the final round is “My Land”. No worries for me there…it’s all about the map.
I was born on Map 45 of the Melway. I grew up in a Californian Bungalow on the map. I played in the street with my most excellent neighbours (9 kids between 3 houses). I went to Primary school on the map and made my first friends on the map. I rode my bike around the map and later spent a lot of time on the 42 & 72 trams.
I fell in love with a boy who lived on the map. He broke my heart at a party on the map and then won it back (also on the map). A few years later he proposed and we were married on the map.
I don’t need Map 45 of the Melway…I know it like the back of my hand…it’s my land.
I had originally cut out a lot of little clip art bits and pieces to make a little township within the street directory – I had grand Rob Ryan type plans. But, it became clear that less was more in this case. Map 45 is home.
I used positioning spray to attach the printout to the page and then cut around the shape and cut out the windows and doors.
I love the pic I’ve ended up with. If you love it too maybe you could do me one more favour and vote right here.
PS: It seems I won the Eye Land round so I think that means I’ll be back later in the week with another camera to iveawaygay (courtesy of Canon) to say thanks for your votes.
