watermarked-alluvium journal 52 prompt

 

Journal52 gives out two (free) prompts per week…this is my response to Sarah Trumpp’s prompt this week: strange word.

In the original post, Sarah linked up an amazing list of words…and I swear I did not simply stop at the A’s…I went up and down that list, several times, but I always came back to this one word…alluvium…unconsolidated sediments carried by water…the mermaid in me wanted to play with this one…

As I played with collage and paints and splatters and drips…what I had originally intended did not really fit…so I went with what was happening instead…even the little leaf face in there…

The word alluvium appears many many times in the background of this spread…and yet, the main thought, the main thrust of this spread is: float…

Isn’t that what all the detritus is doing?  Floating away on the waters…?
