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.

My project today is a card I made in the style of Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec...better known as Toulouse-Lautrec. He was a post-impressionist painter in France in the late 1800s. He painted the night life in and around Paris. One of his favorite subjects was a lady named Jane Avril. She was a can-can dancer during that time. Here is a sketch he did of Jane. Isn't she marvelous?


For my project, I used the Destinations stamp set "Hello and Goodbye". I loosely colored it with Spectrum Aqua watercolor markers to give it that painterly look. I also used the same markers to add color to the sentiment and the background matting. C'est magnifique, isn't it?
