Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

My Fair Fairy

A crafting friend of mine (Christine T.) put forth a challenge to make a card a day. I didn't agree to that gauntlet (yet). In the meantime, and as a consolation, I decided I could commit to a "card a week"--for now. So here is my card for this week (this is the revised photo). What can I say? I am really enjoying colored pencils on kraft paper. I LOVE this frame stamp by Delicious Doodles. It's just so COOL. I also fell head-over-Achilles for these fairy images by Sara Burrier (her stamps are sold HERE) She's a FaBuLoUs artist. Truly. This fairy is surrounded by her little forest friends--chipmunks and squirrels...there was a chipmunk on top of her head, but after I colored it in, it just looked like an odd addition to her hair, so I surgically removed it (sorry little guy). The rest of the card was just odds and ends that were hanging out in my studio. For those of you who looked at this photo yesterday...NO, you're not seeing things...I actually changed her wing color from white/blue to cream/brown. The blue was too stark a contrast.

I'd like to enter this card in Craft Your Passion's challenge #78--"Anything with Ribbon"...  I was entrant # 328...the very LAST one. Wow
