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.

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!

Hoist the Flag

Ahoy there, me crafty hearties!

'Tis time to join the crafty Team B over at Kenny K's Krafty Krew for another riveting challenge! Kenny has come out with some brandy new additions to his Retro line of stamps, and we're here to show 'em off!!

This week our theme is 
We have 2 sponsors this week. First off is
The prize from Kenny is the winner's choice of 5 digi's.

Our second sponsor is:

I just love these new images from Kenny. They are a HUGE departure from his "norm". They totally remind me of the "Lichtenstein" genre of pop art. I really wanted to stay true to Lichtenstein's style when it came to coloring up this image. His style is so graphic. To learn more about Mr. Pop Art himself...Roy Lichtenstein...go HERE. So, I decided to color my image in Photoshop to get a totally smooth coloration. My Prismacolor pencils got a vacation. I bet they went to the beach.

I also wanted to present a "different" take on the whole Banners, Pennants & Bunting theme. You know me...a typical banner just wouldn't do. I was daydreaming about summer camp and how, invariably at some point, some poor kid's underwear gets run up the flagpole--creating a banner, of sorts, proudly waving for all the world to see. What can I say? I tend to create WAY outside that box thing.

This is, after all, Left Field. 

That could explain why I am usually so irreverent and off-the-wall--or maybe not. Perhaps I'm nothing more than an enigma.
