Blast from the past Top2000 blog party 2014


For more than 10 years Marit Barentsen organizes the top 2000 blog party. A creative party around the songs of this years top2000 that takes place in the last week of this year. Everyone can join.

This blogpost contains all the art work I made for the Top 2000 blog party of 2014. I removed the original blogposts to clean up the website a bit, but I like leaving the art work available.

You can see my entries for 2012 here and my 2013 entries here

December 25, 2014: My first two songtitle inspired mixed media pages:

Nr 1985 George Michael with Freedom
For me freedom was connected with flying birds, in this case a bird spreading its wings in a natural environement.

This page has a background of watercolor paint and a collage of a crane from a magazin.

Made a gel transfer with the picture (so people from Nijmegen this picture is in mirror view)
Added a sentence of the lyrics with different letters I had lying around, gave it a border of leftover stickers page en two transparent stickers
