A touch of gold

Joining in at Mystical Scrapbooks for their final challenge of the year ~ Document something that makes you or a family member happy:

J-girl loves animals of all kinds, evident by the numerous photographs I've taken of her with creatures of all shapes and sizes!  She is drawn to animals and seems to make an instant connection.

I was also inspired by the challenge at Mixed Media Monthly, where the theme is Silver and Gold:

This was a fun and easy layout, but it took a few days to create because I had to wait for each layer to dry.  First layer - lots of gesso.  Then a layer of vintage book pages, followed by another thin layer of gesso. Next, two layers of Color Shine.  Here's a close up of the gorgeous gold:
