Lessology and Sketch'n'scrap.

Here is the sketch for sketch and scrap and at Lessology, the focus is on woodgrain.

I started with a woodgrain paper from my August Counterfeit Kit.
The 2 photos I took near my cousins house on the south Coast of NSW, of a paperbark tree.
For overseas people it is one species of eucalypt.
As a kid I loved pulling the bark off.You can actually write on the "paper" from the tree.

I've layered papers to co-ordinate, plus hessian from a hessian bag.(UPCYCLING).
The grey buttons have been in my family from my Great Grandfather, who was a tailor.(UPCYCLING #2). They were originally trouser buttons.
The wooden embellishments have been inked with pinecone to make them stand out more.
I distressed the edges of the paper to match the bark in the photos.
Even the strip of ribbon across is woodgrain.
The cork journaling pocket is by Fancy Pants.
