Although I haven’t shared it on Thursdays / Get Messy Days recently, I am still working on my From Here to There album. This album documents our transition from Hong Kong to Gatineau, Canada. Now that we are more or less settled in, I have more time to get creative and make some pages. I did these six pages in one sitting and they document my last week in Montreal, which is where I grew up and my favorite place to be.
I did a little Currents here. The hare is one that I free stitched with my sewing machine earlier this year.
There is a certain nostalgia when you revisit your childhood city / home/ neighborhood. You see things with new eyes and you wish you could stay there.
This. This is what makes our way of life so hard for me.
I was really feeling this the other night.
Just wanted to draw your attention on this : sometimes the negatives from your alphabet sheets have super interesting shapes or designs and they can add something extra to your pages.
We left Montreal, took the road again and arrived in Gatineau. In our new rented house which is quickly becoming a home.
I wanted to hint at my mixed feelings by contrasting the confetti and the raindrops.
The next set of pages will be about our new place I think. And then, it’ll be time to set aside this album and get going on my Project Life.
