Blast from the Past: Top 2000 blog party 2016

Its almost time for the Top 2000 blog party organised each year by Marit Barentsen again. I combined my blogpost from 2016 to give you this Blast from the past post with everything I made for this party in 2016.

Interested in the other years, here are the blast from the past posts:

Newer work are still found in the original blog post, just scroll through them and you will find 2017, 2018 and 2019. I will be making combined post of these years later.

Day 6 of the blog party already. Just one more day to go and then this year and the blog party are over. Today I made these artworks:

#331 - Bob Marley & the Wailers - Three little birds

Started with a gelliplate printed background, added 3 birds from magazin clippings and gave each bird a lyric from the song

# 296 - Within Temptation - Ice Queen

Made this on a pressed wood background that was painted blue. Added a face with oil bars. Made hair with acrylic paint and glass beads and white glas christmas decoration in gel medium

Added stars with plaster and colored the background with acrylic paint and acrylic ink.

Today my last entry for the top2000 blog party.

#205 Neil Young - Heart of Gold

On an old little canvas with a background of paint and little stones I added tissue paper painted with dylusions and added a heart made of painted paper towel.

Hope you will join this fabulous blog party this year.
