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.

Get Your Kicks

It's Monday (I think) so that means it's time for another fun challenge over at  
This week's challenge is sponsored by 

I really love the images over there...they are very unique and "grown up"...some are rather creepy too. I saw a plate of worms and eyeballs over there. Eew. I think Teri (the creative force behind Delicious Doodles) has a "thing" for zombies. Just sayin'.  The theme for this week is Black & White + 1. It's pretty self-explanatory...you can only use Black and White plus 1 other color. 

I chose this really retro image of a "19-Piptee-sebben Chebby". I'm really into retro at present. I love mid-century modern stuff. The shapes and colors from back then are SO spiffy. For my + 1 color I chose hot pank. That's a whole other animal than plain old "pink". It goes GREAT with black and white though.

Hot Pank is really bold and brazen. It's not shy and retiring like it's pale carnation cousin. I colored up the image with my Prismacolor pencils--actually I just used 2 of them...black and Process Red (which is really pank) I fussy-cut the car out then popped it off its background with foam tape. I think it looks nifty!
