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.

Paper Moon

Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!
You say it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe if you believed in me.
Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe if you believed in me.

And...the folks at Crafter's Companion...believe in me!

Today marks my first project for Crafter's Companion as a design team member! I was selected to be on their "International Inspiration Team"...and that's what I hope I will be able to do--INSPIRE y'all! Crafter's Companion carries a lovely collection of stamps alongside their signature line of coloring tools--Spectrum Noir Markers, Spectrum Aqua markers, and...get this...Spectrum Noir COLORED PENCILS!!! Betcha didn't know they made colored pencils.

Neither did I until I joined their design team!

Isn't that awesome??? You know what that means? I get to play with a WHOLE NEW set of colored pencils!! WOOT! I gave my Prismacolor pencils a much-deserved vacation!.

One thing I really like about Spectrum Noir colored pencils is how EASILY they sharpen! AND...so far, none of them have broken their leads (unlike some other now-vacationing brand of pencil). I can't wait to try them on all different types of paper!!

So, my first project is a card I made using 2 stamps from their Kimono line...this set is called Paper Moon. It's soooooo pretty. I just love all the sets in the Kimono line. All of them. A lot. And, you know what? The quality of these stamps is top notch, and their prices are pretty amazing!
