cherish 23

 Hi there! Today I have a mixed media style altered canvas to share featuring my sweet little girl Gretchen. 
 When I saw the theme for this week's  the Simon Says Stamps Monday challenge: It's A Dogs Life, I knew I had to join along in memory of my sweet girl who passed away this summer at the age of 11. Gretchen was my little fur baby who was always at my feet.
I added lots of texture to the background using a stencil and texture paste:
And embellished the canvas with a variety of metal trinkets and plastic baubles from my stash:

I'm also sharing my canvas with this week's Paint Party Friday site as well as the Altered Eclectics site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
