Art Journaling in Vintage Ledgers

Have you tried art journaling in a vintage ledger yet?  They are really awesome!  They have a lovely aged look about them and often have gorgeous bonus handwriting.  It's like each page has been started for you.

This is is a page that I just finished with vintage photos and ephemera, paint and ink, and little peek of a #LUCKY diecut piece that will be in the March Magpie Box.

Vintage ledgers are perfect for all sorts of art journaling.  In the page above I dabbled in collage while this older one focuses more on sketching.

They even hold up to painting quite well.  This page is heavy on the gesso and acrylics.  I just always skip a page between projects and then sew the edges of the pages together when I'm done.  This makes for a thinker more durable work surface.

The covers have their own vintage charm and can be decorated as well.

If you're interested in giving vintage ledgers a try, there are links below to a few that are currently available in our flea market.
