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.

Grow Old Along With Me...

It's that time of year...weddings abound! I know of 4 or 5 different couples who are getting married within the next month...and I get to make cards for all of them. The first of my wedding series is for the youngest son of a friend of mine. In my mind, he's still like 8 years old--cutest little tow-head imp you've ever seen. Somewhere in the last couple of decades...he grew up. The NERVE! At any rate...he's getting married here in a few days.

Here is the card I made for him and his lovely bride. Their wedding colors are red, black and white. At least I think they are...that's what the invitations were, so I am assuming that is the chosen color scheme. I decided to try my hand at a totally stamp-free card. I didn't want any cutesy little images of brides and grooms. I didn't want butterflies or doves with ribbons and pearls. I wanted to create something...unique.

I KNOW!!! ZENTANGLE! That's the ticket! I used mainly one Zentangle pattern called "Mooka" (thanks to Jodi for giving me the idea...long story, but it has to do with her new Australian Shepherd puppy named "Mooka"). I now am TOTALLY enamored with the "Mooka" pattern. It's just...cool. So here it is...my Zentangled wedding card.
