Teenagers. They think they know everything. You give them an inch, they swim all over you.5:00 AM
Well we've reached the end of fairy tale week with The Digital Dozen. I'm always sad to see these weeks go but this week I'm extra sad because it's been so fun reading everyone's fairy tales! I envisioned myself doing a lot of intricate and amazing designs for this week but being in training for a new job has really drained me! Still I love what I've come up with thus far! As a child one of my FAVORITE films was The Little Mermaid. I never knew that the Disney version was so rose colored until one summer when I was visiting my grandparents. I remember it VERY clearly because they did not have many channels and they had even less videos and so when The Little Mermaid came on I was so excited to watch it. Even in it's Japanese anime-esque glory. I mean, I loved My Neighbor Totoro and The Secret World of Arietty so how bad could it be? It's bad ya'll. Real bad. OK so it's not actually bad and according to the original story it's quite accurate. However, no little girl wants to watch her favorite mermaid die. No matter the reason. I was traumatized. So today I've chosen to do a little abstract version of the HAPPY little mermaid! Today's 31 day challenge was tranquility so I feel the ocean and water kind of tie it in! I hope you enjoyed fairy tale week with us! What's your favorite fairy tale?
