The Hills are Alive with the Sound of … Texture Baby!

Hello Travelers!

I have a very textured piece staring at me right now and all I can hear is Julie Andrews singing as she twirls in a meadow in full technicolor.

If you are not familiar with what I am talking about, here is a YouTube video you can watch and then you tell me if I am way off base or not. Julie Andrews sings The Sound of Music

Okay, so now that you have the same image in your head as I do, you might want the supply list I used to create this awesome piece. I have that and some closeups below as well as the replay to watch the creation too.

About Heather Kraafter

First and foremost, I am a child of the One True King! I am blessed to be married to my best friend and was privileged to stay home and raise my boys. I began the Kraaft Shaak in 2010 as a way to experiment with crafting mediums and to teach others what I have learned and have come to enjoy it as my creative passion. Taking the 'show on the road' is my latest passion and each day is one step closer to that dream. Thanks for being a part of that journey too!
