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.

Ship Shape

Ahoy there, crafty peeps!

I'm here with another project for Crafter's Companion!

Today's card is sort of an outside-in card. The image is on the INSIDE. But, I gave a teasing little glimpse of what lies inside with my porthole feature! This is my twisted take on a "Bon Voyage" card...sort of the opposite end of the journey; the coming home part.

The outside of the card is all paper-pieced by hand...porthole, ship's siding, suitcases...the whole shebang. I used Crafter's Companion shimmering cardstock for the porthole and the hardware on the suitcases, and Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils to add definition to the porthole, the suitcases, and travel stickers.

The inside of the card features a fussy-cut Statue of Liberty sitting atop a stamped skyline background. I added the "sun" rays by coloring through a stencil directly on the background with colored pencils.
