Day 2: Splash
Day 2: Splash: 1984 – Allen Bauer is rescued from drowning as a young boy off Cape Cod by a young mermaid. Years later, he returns to the same location, and once again manages to fall into the sea, and is rescued once more by the mermaid (Allen isn’t sure what he has seen and what he has imagined). Using maps from a sunken ship, the mermaid decides to search for Allen in New York City, sprouting legs when her tail dries. On finding Allen, they fall in love, but she has a secret, which will no longer be a secret if she gets her legs wet.

I was really excited to get the movie Splash as my prompt. It was one of my favorite movies as a kid. When I thought specifically about the two prompts – 1) Something found or rescued and 2) a water technique – a memory popped into my head from the 80’s about the ski boat my parents found and rescued from neglect. I know my photos of this event are not the best quality, but that is real life scrapbooking! I used arrows as page elements to help bring focus to the images. And the story is supported with all the watery techniques: watercolor background, splashes (haha!) of sequins, and die cut wave shapes. I hope you enjoy my example for today and I look forward to seeing how this prompt inspires you.
