Blast from the past: TOP 2000 Blog Party 2017


Autumn is here and we are getting closer to the end of this year. Each december its: Top 2000 blog party organised by Marit Barentsen time. In this post I combined my blogpost from the top 2000 blog party 2017 to give you this Blast from the past post.

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

I will be making combined post for 2018 in november and for 2019 at the beginning of december. Just as a teaser to get you in the mood of this fun party.

Since I first joined in 2012, I now have a big stack of pages with creations inspired by this Top2000.

Because of the limited time in 2017 I decided to make small pages in a little art journal.

My entries for 2017:


nr 1955 Sausalito Summernight by Diesel

For this page I used a collage of a seaside with sun from a magazine and a picture I made from from the golden gate bridge. Added text with posca pens.

nr 1831: Ain't no mountain high enough by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

Again a collage of a magazine picture with mountains and adding text with posca pens


nr 1651 Roar by Katy Perry

Collage of a lion picture from  magazin on gold watercolor paint. Added part of the lyrics with a metallic pen.

Do you see me roar (my zodiac sign is Lion so I feel connected with them)

For this page I used a background of orange paper with collage of several new york related pictures. Also a transfer from a postcard in the left corner and letter stickers where used.

Added a heart shaped piece of paper with a part of the lyrics
