Art Journal: Then and Now

Matt's family has lived in their home for quite a few generations, so he is always discovering some awesome artifact from the 1800s or older. Anyway, recently they came upon this great old book and I recognized it immediately for what it was: a 19th Century Art Journal!!

I mean, these girls kept their musings, poetry, and inspirations in this book, along with illustrations and sometimes cut-outs! What else could you call it?

So I thought I would share a few of my recent art journal pages, too. I'm no Elizabeth Black, but I've been having fun just the same.

I hope you are having a lovely and inspired weekend!
