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.

Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!

Just popping on for a quick post for Crafter's Companion (CC)! I'm sharing a project I made with my newest set of stamps from CC. I really, REALLY like this set. There is just something magical about a big old stack of books.

I colored up the images with Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers. I love the time-worn feel they imparted to the books. The flourish stamp from the set blended perfectly with the background patterned paper. And, of course, I had to put a sentiment on there that reflected my sense of humor. Thank you, Julius Henry Marx, for that wonderful saying.

Oh, you don't know who that is? You probably know him by his stage name--Groucho.
