Be 4 ever Beautiful

"Be 4 Ever Beautiful" is the title of my DT piece for this weeks challenge over at Crafts4eternity with our challenge this week being one of my favourites
you can make anything but it must have some form of texture on it and texture comes in many forms.
for my piece I have started with an 8" X 6" canvas board.
Texture has been added by using modeling paste through a Crafters Workshop stencil. Once dry I have added a coat of Paperartsy fresco finish opaque paint in guacamole and then smeared on with a credit card beach hut & London bus translucent paint. To add further texture I have cut and painted some galvanised mesh panel and added that to the canvas. Further stenciling has been added using sequin waste and chicken wire stencil. 

further embellishments from Tim holtz  Idea-ology range have been added to add additional interest and the start of my sentiment is ripped from a 7Gypsies Lillie Tag
I have also added some T.H. remnant rubs and a Chit Chat sticker.
Texture comes in many forms and techniques so come and show us how you interpret Texture and come and play along this week,
I would also like to enter into this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is "Paste"
