Week 15 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

T is the prescribed letter on the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge this week. I haven't used any virgin  stamps today but instead I've used a new stencil along with Grunge Paste for the very first time. So that dictated that my T-word would be "texture".
I liked the atc better before I added the beads! It had been my intention to put crackle glaze on that corner but in my excitement to play with my new toys it went straight out of my head and it was too late! I then needed to find some more texture, so beads it had to be!

Cool idea using texture. Many times I have forgotten my grand plans and had to rethink the end result and your solutions is still brillant - so well done Maggie.
