Gui Texture GameObject not showing up

Hi Everyone, I am following a tutorial series online where the tutor creates a texture through GameObject > Create other > GUI Texture. When I do the same, I don’t see it at all.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

after much testing and experimentation I have discovered that I needed a GUILayer Component before my GUITexture would show up. I hope this helps someone else out there
