Top 2000 book finished

In December I participated in Marit’s Top 2000 Party. It all started with this old book from our library. It’s a book about cricket, so I just had to use the song Dreadlock Holiday for one of my spreads. I used a part of the page with a cricket photo as part of my spread.
Here I’m working on my first spread, which I shared here. All other spreads are in this blogpost.
When all spreads were done I started working on the cover of my book. I used some parts of the printed version of the Top 2000, printed photos of the artists and origami music paper. This is the front cover with Billy Joel and John Lennon.
For the inside of the front cover I wanted to add a list of the songs I used for my spreads. When I was working on that I remembered the music paper from many years ago, when I took keyboard lessons. I used the notes and lyrics from Imagine as my background.
The inside of the back cover with the artists of the first 5 spreads I made.
And the backside of my cover with 10CC, Youp van ‘t Hek and Nits. Take a closer look at this book and all spreads at my Flickr album.
So now I’m ready for a new journaling challenge: Marit’s workshop Let it Loose, which starts today. So I’m off to download the first lesson.

    1. Dank je wel, Marjolein. Het was een hele uitdaging om dit boek te vullen tussen Kerst en oud en nieuw. Voor de kaft heb ik dus wat meer tijd genomen!
