For this song Op 't platteland (ïn the countryside")  I used a circle background made with a gelliplate and blue and green brusho in water. Added collage with all kind of magazin clippings with animals that can be seen in the dutch countryside.

    Leuk Carla, je oude werk voor de top 2000 weer voorbij te zien komen – ik herinner me er zelfs een paar! (en da’s knap hoor, want er komen gemiddeld zo’n 35 tot 40 inzendingen per dag binnen gedurende die week!) Ik zie uit naar prachtig nieuw werk van je over een week of twee… veel plezier alvast!!

      Ja vind het zelf ook wel leuk om al die oude dingen te zien. Mijn 8e jaar alweer. Ben zelf ook benieuwd wat ik ga maken.
