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.

3 Cheers For Summer!

Hidy ho! It's the last Wednesday of the month (already???) so that means it's time for 
Blog Hoppening.
 Oooh, I like that word. I just made it up--Hoppening. It rates right up there with other fatabulous words like flopportunity and ginormous.

I digress (so what else is new).

The theme of this month's Hoppening is "3 Cheers for Summer". This means you gotta make something with a summery feel AND you gotta use 3 of something on your project--like 3 different patterned papers, 3 tags, 3 eyelets, 3 colors...3 whatever!!!  3, 3, 3 -- Triad, triplet, tres, triplicate, trois, THREE!!! This Hoppening is brought to you by the number 3 and the letter "S" for summer. I bet you're all humming the Sesame Street theme now, aren't you?
If you hopped on over from Sweet Susie's nifty neat-o blog, then you're in the right place! Kudos to you! If not, no worries, you still got here! If you missed the other stops on this fun, fun, fun and summery hop, you can start from the beginning at the Bombshell Stamps blog.

For my project I incorporated many sets of "3"...
  • 3 Bombshell Angels
  • 3 parasols
  • 3 pairs of sunglasses
  • 3 words in the sentiment
  • groups of 3 brads. Wait...I only put on 2 groups of 3 brads. Dang. Well... 2 x 3 = 6 and 6 is divisible by 3--so it all works...just don't look at the errant group of 2 brads on the sentiment.
  • and there are 333 white dots on the background paper. (you're counting them aren't you?)
I stamped all the images directly on ONE piece of white cardstock (I'm not as stamp-challenged as I thought). Then I colored the images and their sunny background with my Prismacolor pencils. It was nerve-racking. One false move, and I would have had to go to plan B and cut them all out separately...but today I had coloring skillz. I did color the right parasol separately and silhouette-cut it out so I could pop it over the angel on the right. If this weren't bright enough already, I decided to add glitter. So there is glitter on here...lots of it. It's on the sentiment, sunglasses, shoes, bathing suits, right parasol and on the sun background.

Enough incessant babbleage. Here's my card.
