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.

Hey Diddle Diddle

Hidy ho, crafty peeps!

I'm popping in today with a quick post to promote our new challenge over at 

Our theme this time around is
NOTE that ALL of our challenges have the alternate option of *ANYTHING GOES* too!  So come and join the fun by entering your projects using 
One lucky winner will receive a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of Premium Dye Ink Pads!
Now for my project! 

I was having quite the debate with myself over whether the theme was about using pastel colors...or about using pastels--the coloring medium. I decided it was the former (good thing, as then I would have to decide between oil pastels, chalk pastels or pan pastels...and I just wasn't up to choosing).

I selected a cute Happy Hoppers image, and colored it up with my BRAND SPANKIN' NEW Spectrum Aquablend watercolor pencils. Oh boy are they fun! They are MARVELOUS to work with. They have the look of pencil that has been blended with Gamsol...without having to use Gamsol! They blend so beautifully with water! 
So come join our Pastels challenge
...and you can interpret that any way you like!
