LESSology - ANIMAL challenge for June...

I have to tell you, I am not good at using animals on my pages. I do ADORE butterflies but I rarely use them....birds, the same....BUT I did manage a couple here...
 ..one was on the paper, then I stamped, water-coloured & fussy cut another one:) And my page is about an animal...WALLY...the wonder dog! Lucky I've got him to scrap, eh??!!!
 Isn't he CUTE? The arrow near the wood 'big smiles' [from Elle's Studio, BTW!] is cut from a cereal box! And my biggest recycled element is the tag, tucked in behind the photo, created from packaging:
 And this is how it looks after just one coat of BLACK GESSO....it's amazing how much better the white gel pen writes on the gesso instead of normal card stock, too:)
I could have done another coat of gesso, but I rather liked this 'rustic' look...suited my page:)
While I had the gesso out, this RED PAPER CLIP also got a coat....the yellow is Glimmer Glaze....
A bit of hessian, another bit of stamping packaging, a few sentiment stamps, arrows....& that's about it!
Here's the PRIZE up for grabs this month:

A $20 gift voucher from THE FLYING UNICORN !!!!!
Hoping you get a chance to join us at LESSology - remember, ANY sort of creation, as long as you follow the theme & use at least ONE recycled item......
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
